Polls: PRI, Peña Nieto hold strong lead in 2012 preferences

A new Mitofsky poll shows preferences for the 2012 presidential election largely unchanged. Based on party choices (without naming specific candidates), the PRI is preferred by 38% of those surveyed, the PAN 20%, and the PRD 10%. (The rest are undecided or favor minor parties.) There has been a slight uptick in support for the PAN, which is consistent with an increase in President Felipe Calderóns poll ratings in recent months.  When voters are asked whom they would like to see as President, Enrique Peña Nieto, the PRI governor of Mexico State, outpolls all other contenders by a 3:1 margin.
