AMLO, the PRI, and the Frente: A Look at Mexico's 2018 Election

Ahead of the July 2018 presidential election, there are several main questions to analyze. What are the main public opinion trends going forward to the 2018 presidential election? What are the odds of the PRI retaining the Presidency? Is a Lopez Obrador victory a sure thing, or will the Frente Ciudadano (PAN-PRD-MC) prove to be an obstacle? Who in Mexico fears an AMLO presidency the most, and which party benefits from this fear?

In our event, led by Jorge Buendía, we discussed these questions by looking at the economy, presidential approval, and citizens' perceptions of both parties and likely candidates.
