Mexico: AMLO Leads Presidential Poll by Almost 11%

By teleSUR

10 April 18


El Universal published a poll which shows Lopez Obrador holding a comfortable lead over his closest competitor.

exican leftist candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) – who has had two unsuccessful presidential runs – is enjoying a near 11-percent lead over his closest rival. The National Regeneration Movement (Morena) leader is ahead according to a newspaper poll.

El Universal published results of a poll which shows AMLO holding a comfortable double-digit lead over his closest competitor, following some 42 percent of people who participated in the poll saying they would vote for the former mayor. The election is scheduled for July 1.

Lopez Obrador leads Ricardo Anaya by 10.9 percent.

Anaya is currently trending in second place with 31 percent of the poll votes ahead of Jose Antonio Meade on 21.9 percent and Margarita Zavala on 5 percent.

Meade is running as the candidate for the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party, while Zavala, wife former President Felipe Calderon, is running as an independent candidate.

Lopez Obrador numbers surged due to the public's general displeasure with widespread violence and corruption. AMLO has promised to eliminate government corruption and invest in infrastructure, health, education and social programs without raising taxes.

He has also expressed displeasure with Peña Nieto's enabling of Donald Trump. “Our country, our people, will not be a piñata of any foreign government.”

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Good backlash? Maybe it can spread north.
