AMLO gaining in Mexico
Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) is gaining fast in polls in Mexico. The poll currently shows AMLO at 35%, with his main rival, Felipe Calderón, at 32%. Given that the margin of error is 3.1%, this puts the two virutally neck-in-neck. The election is scheduled fo July 2nd.
AMLO is no Chavez, but his election will further unsettle Latin America watchers in DC. Recently, AMLO took a pretty strong anti-NAFTA stance. That especially will worry the US administration. It would worry a Democratic administration too...
Update: excellent analysis here.
