Humala Gains Momentum

OIlanta Humala rose the the first place in the Peruvian presidential race 20 days before the election. Here are the numbers produced by Apoyo Opinión y Mercado:
-Ollanta Humala: 32% (3 points more than a week earlier)
-Lourdes Flores: 28% (3 points less than a week earlier)
-Alan Garcia: 21% (1 point less than a week ealier)

In a runoff Humala and Flores would score 50%, however Humala candidacy is clearly gaining momentum whereas Flores's is losing ground.

Media have characterized Lourdes Flores as a free marketer, Ollanta Humala as a leftist with close ties to Venezuela’s Chavez and Alan Garcia as an ineffectual but charismatic former president.
