MADRID (Reuters) - Spain's ruling People's Party (PP) would win a general election if it was held today, followed by anti-austerity Podemos and the socialist party, an official poll showed on Wednesday.

The PP would grab 27.3 percent of the vote, while Podemos would get 23.9 percent and the socialists 22.2 percent, according to the survey, carried out in early January through a poll of 2,500 people.
