MADRID--One in five people in recession-hit Spain would like to ditch the euro and return to the peseta, a poll published Sunday showed.
Twenty-one percent of Spaniards said they would like to return to the peseta, the country's currency until it switched over to the euro in 2002, according to the Metroscopia survey published in daily newspaper El Pais.
Seventy percent of those surveyed said Spain should stay within the common currency bloc and the rest were undecided or refused to answer.
