An El Universal poll (3/30) showed a 10 point drop in support for the PRI over six weeks, confirming the trend showed by other polls; the PRD also lost support. A significantly increased share of those surveyed said the “vote is secret.” The results leave the PRI and the PAN essentially tied with 90 days to the election. As columnist Salvador García Soto noted, “The same pride that affected AMLO [in the 2006 presidential election] today damages the PRI as the favored party for the July 5 elections – they believe they have such an advantage that they disdain and minimize the damage caused by the war strategy of [PAN party leader] Germán Martínez.” (Universal 4/1)
