Katie Putnam, The Mexico Institute’s Elections Guide
A new Buendía and Laredo poll shows a clear advantage within the PAN for former Congresswoman Josefina Vázquez Mota; 42 percent of voters close to the PAN would like her to be the candidate. Former Congressman Santiago Creel is favored by 23 percent, and outgoing Treasury Secretary Ernesto Cordero by 14 percent. (Note: the total does not equal 100 percent because the poll included candidates still in the running at the time.)
Among those close to the PRD, Mexico City Mayor Marcelo Ebrard trails former presidential candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador with 32 percent support, compared to his rival’s 58 percent. In the general population, Ebrard is favored by a margin of three percentage points (30 to 27).
