Pre-election poll shows great skepticism in Peru
20 de noviembre de 2020, 8:6Lima, Nov 20 (Prensa Latina) More than a third of Peruvians plan to vote blank or annul the vote, while a premature favorite continues a sustained drop in voters' preferences, according to a survey by the Ipsos company.
The poll, released on the Internet, specifies that 35 percent of voters plan to vote blank or vitiate their vote, usually with insults or mockery (18 percent) and 17 percent who did not respond have not yet decided who to do it or hide their preferences.
Former footballer George Forsyth continued to fall from 23 percent in September and fell to 16 percent in November, although he maintains the first place achieved with an early media campaign, when he still had no rivals.
Behind is Julio Guzmán, from the Purple Party (PM) -to which the new temporary president, Francisco Sagasti belongs-, with seven percent, two more than in October.
The third place is shared by the candidate of the progressive bloc Together for Peru (JP), Verónica Mendoza; and right-wing populist Daniel Urresti, member of parliament for the Podemos Peru group,
Mendoza rose one point from October and Urresti, a former general with a pending trial for the murder of a journalist committed more than 30 years ago, fell two.
Below is the neoliberal Keiko Fujimori, from Fuerza Popular (FP), with five units.
Fujimori could be out of the race if the request of an Anticorruption prosecutor to suspend FP for its participation in the money laundering case for which the candidate is about to be tried is successful.
Below are the neoliberal economist Hernando de Soto (4) and the businessman César Acuña, from the Alliance for Progress, and the center-leftist candidate for Popular Action, Yonhy Lescano, with three points.
With two percent, follows the rightist rival of Lescano, Alfredo Barnechea; the former president Ollanta Humala, the radical leader of the teaching profession Pedro Castillo and the conservative Social Christian Alberto Beingolea.
Other candidates, such as the old Aprista Party candidate, Nidia Vílchez, and Marco Arana, from the environmental group Frente Amplio, have only one percent.
The Peruvian general, presidential and parliamentary elections will be held on April 11, 2021.
