Cristina Fernandez-Kirchner Leads Electoral Polls in Argentina

Published 24 April 2019 (11 hours 9 minutes ago)

Argentina's former President Cristina Fernandez-Kirchner (CFK) would take a 9-point lead in a possible Oct. 27 second round against President Mauricio Macri, according to an Isonomia Consultant survey released over the weekend.

Despite the fact that the presidental primary candidates for the presidential primaries will be announced in June for the actual primaries happening in August, the Isonomia poll gives Cristina a 45 percent approval rating by citizens' to Macri's 36 percent in a second round.

In the first round, however, both candidates poll as technically tied, with each getting about 30 percent of valid votes. Third place would depend on who the moderate Peronism's candidate will be.

The poll results did not surprise many local analysts given that Argentina's economy has been worsening since Macri began his presidential term on Dec. 10, 2015. The current annual inflation rate reached 54.7 percent in March and poverty has spread to 32 percent of the population, a situation which has weakened Macri's re-election chances.


Best wishes to the good one.
