8/16/2011: Poll suggests any PRI candidate would beat competition if election were held today (Mitofsky data)

By Katie Putnam, The Mexico Institute’s Elections Guide


A new Mitosfky poll shows that any PRI candidate would win the presidency if the vote were to take place today.

Enrique Peña Nieto’s 63 percent and his fellow priísta Manlio Fabio Beltrones 24 percent both surpassed other possible candidates from the PAN and PRD. However, the PAN’s Josefina Vázquez Mota and Santiago Creel and the PRD’s Andrés Manuel López Obrador and Marcelo Ebrard all polled several percentage points higher if Beltrones was the PRI candidate (between three and seven points).
