Andrew Selee, The Mexico Institute’s Elections Guide, 2/23/2012

In the latest El Universal poll, Enrique Peña Nieto maintains a clear lead, but Josefina Vázquez Mota also goes up significantly and her positive numbers overall improve. Andrés Manuel López Obrador seems stuck in third place, but his positive numbers also improved dramatically, which suggests a potential for further growth.

Equally interesting are the respondents’ views of the parties and what they would do. It is clear that the PRI strong suit is the perception of “competence,” the PAN “a better government,” and the PRD a “government that works for the people,” which have been the central messages of the candidates so far.
