Wishful thinking?

“Wish” (deseo) you may know. “Wishful” is the adjective.

Mortals often are wishful, that is, they are wishful to do something (están deseoso de hacer algo), or in other words, they have a desire to do something.

However, “wishful thinking” (ilusiones) is different. Mr. Sánchez, the Spanish Prime Minister, thinks he can win a majority at the next election.

Some say: “that is just wishful thinking” (eso es querer hacerse ilusiones).

What do you opine (¿qué opina usted?).
