In which we continue to state that the Mexico Presidential election is not a foregone conclusion

Here we show the polls of voter intention for the three main players in this year's Mexican Presidential election, set to happen on July 1st 2012. Our players are:
  • Enrique Peña Nieto of the PRI party
  • Josefina Vázquez Mota of the PAN party
  • Andrés Manuel López Obrador (known to all as AMLO) of the PRD party

So yes, Peña Nieto is a long way out in front according to pollsters Mitofsky (who by the way are normally regarded as Mexico's best survey company but AMLO supporters insist they cook da books and underestimate his support). But there's also a tendency to register here, as July 1st is still a long way off and Peña Nieto is losing a bit of support while the other two see modest improvements.
