Spain's Socialists (PSOE) would easily win a general election if a vote was held today, winning 29.9 percent of the vote, according to an official poll released on Thursday.

It was the first poll since June's change of government in Spain following a no-confidence vote which toppled the conservative People's Party (PP) after dozens of officials were charged in a high profile corruption case.

PP fell into joint second place with the market-friendly Ciudadanos party, both polling with 20.4 percent of the vote.

Anti-austerity party Podemos dropped to 15.6 percent of the vote, the poll showed.

Those results compared to the previous poll published in May which showed the PP taking 24 percent, Ciudadanos 22.4 percent, Socialists 22 percent and Podemos 19.6 percent.
