2/13/2013: The presidential candidates

Katie Putnam, The Mexico Institute’s Elections Guide, 2/13/2013

Fresh off her victory in the PAN primary, Josefina Vázquez Mota has solidified second place in the presidential race, according to a new Mitofsky poll. Enrique Peña Nieto (PRI) is clearly still the frontrunner with 40 percent support, but no longer seems invincible. From the peak of 25 points, Peña Nieto’s lead is 16 points above Vázquez Mota (she polls 24 percent). Vázquez Mota outpolled Andrés Manuel López Obrador (PRD) by more than the margin of error for the first time, six points ahead of his 17.7 percent. (Note: the second graph reflects the “effective vote,” excluding those who gave no preference.)
