Neck to Neck

Felipe Calderón from the ruling party PAN is gaining momentum at the end of the Mexican presidential race.

Just a month ago Mexican Presidential Candiate Andrés Manuel López Obrador looked unbeatable, with a 10% lead in the Mexican presidential race. However the latest edition of a monthly poll
published by national newspaper El Universal is showing a different picture. Here are the numbers:

-Andrés M. López Obrador, Alianza Por el Bien de Todos: 38% (42% in March).
-Felipe Calderón, National Action Party: 34% (32% in March).
-Roberto Madrazo, Institutional Revolutionary: 25% (24% in March).

Felipe Calderón is gaining momentum just when he needs it, two months prior to election day, whereas López Obrador is quickly losing ground. This trend heralds a dramatic finale.

Hi Camilo, very interesting your post. I noticed that the PAN has used Chavez in his advertising. Do you think it has some connection on why Lopez Obrador is loosing points? I do.
