Calderon Takes the Lead

A recent survey published by Reforma, Mexico’s largest newspaper gives, for the first time, the lead in the presidential race to Felipe Calderon, from the ruling conservative party PAN.

Calderon is quickly gaining momentum whereas leftist contender Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is losing ground.

These are the numbers published by Reforma:

Felipe Calderon, PAN: 38% (7% increase from March)

Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, PRD: 35% (6% decrease from

Roberto Madrazo, PRI: 23% (2% decrease from March)

Calderon momentum has been linked to an advertising campaign comparing Lopez Obrador with Hugo Chavez. Election day is 02 July.
