López Obrador leads in Mexican presidency race

Mexico City, Mexico — According to an electoral survey, Andrés Manuel López Obrador continues to lead in the presidential polls.

With less than three weeks before election day, Morena candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador, has come in with 41.7 percent of the gross votes followed by Ricardo Anaya Cortés with 21 percent and José Antonio Meade with 13.6 percent.

The electoral survey was taken by the Employers’ Confederation of the Mexican Republic (Coparmex) for Mexico in coordination with the survey companies Berumen and Ipsos, who surveyed 13,317 people who say they intend to vote.

Ricardo Anaya Cortés of PAN-PRD-MC and PRI candidate José Antonio Meade, continue to battle for top spot while independent candidate Jaime Rodríguez Calderón has secured only 2.3 percent of those surveyed.

The survey was announced Wednesday by Coparmex who also say that 21.5 percent of voters still do not know either who they will vote for or simply did not reveal their electoral preference.

The Coparmex poll indicates that it is possible that López Obrador’s party also obtains a majority in both legislative chambers. This is López Obrador’s third time running for the president of Mexico.
