Peru Presidential Polling: Keiko Fujimori and Julio Guzmán lead the field

Released last night on Peru's political TV show 'Sin Medias Tintas' (aka "Son Medios Tontos", know your Spanish and know your Peru political talking heads to get the joke) and a link here to a report with the numbers, here's the latest voter intention poll for the Peru Presidential election set for April 10th (just a month plus days away now):


Once again we see Keiko with a solid lead. Once again we see the outsider Julio Guzmán consolidated in a clear second place (if he's allowed to run of course, yet another judgment coming up against him this week). He's up 6.2% since the last GfK poll taken on January 31st. Then come the stragglers, with PPK down 2.6% since January 31st, Alan García getting absolutely nowhere (that's a big surprise) and César Acuña down from second spot at the beginning of the year to a disaster today. He's ruined.

Aside Guzmán, the other uppers on a minor level are Alfredo Barnechea, a Lima centrist politico, and Verónika Mendoza, the lefty and the only candidate among all those to offer a different economic model. Both those have risen slightly, but it's looking too late to be able to challenge Guzmán for second spot. If Guzmán's candidacy gets thrown out by the judges this week however, all bets are off. That's possible, not probable.
