MADRID (Reuters) - Spain's ruling People's Party (PP) would win a general election if it was held today with 25.6 percent of the vote while the socialists would take the second seat with 24.3 percent, a closely-watched opinion poll showed on Thursday.

Upstart leftist party Podemos would come third, but its support is seen dropping to 16.5 percent from 23.9 percent in January.

Other newcomer Ciudadanos would come fourth with 13.8 percent, up sharply from 3.1 percent three months ago.
