The Spanish referendum results are coming in on Barcepundit (via Belmonst Club) regarding their vote for or against the EU constitution.

It looks like it will be a little over 40% turnout with the pro-constitution side winning handily. Given the nearly 60% turnout in Iraq without the deployment of Spanish troops to protect the voters, the presence of Spanish troops is not a predictor of voter turnout (sorry Spanish military, but you work for a shameful group. May you get better leaders).

To be fair, I think the Sunnis sat out this election, too.
