Rajoy's Spanish Re-election Plan May Be in Doubt

To anyone who doubted his re-election strategy, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has had a simple answer: "Trust me". Now, a battering in local polls has cast doubt on his plan that an economic recovery will secure him a second term later this year. Rajoy's message as he campaigned across Spain for his conservative People's Party was that In six months' time, when the next general election is due, the Spanish economy will be growing at 3 percent and half a million jobs will have been created.
