Mexico: Mexican Bloggers Take on Lopez Obrador

Mexican friends have pointed out interesting internet activity about Mexico's upcoming elections. PRD candidate, Antonio Manuel Lopez Obrador has a lot of people online fired up, with chain emails circulating, and several anti-AMLO bloggers. Some are fairly clever, others slightly cruder. Many of them are plays on the nickname for the PRD candidate, El Peje, which is pretty close to a certain naughty word in spanish whose first letters are p...e...n..d..

When AMLO appeared on TV, and said he would not answer questions about "general culture" the clip was downloaded and spread on the web pretty quickly on Your Tube. It was at one point the 51st watched clip in the world with 300,000 hits, which as Mexico en Peligro pointed out that was probably more than saw that morning program.

There are emails also circulating widely, which provide links to that, and other videos.

According to a recent poll Lopez Obrador and the PAN candidate are in a dead heat in the student vote, and among voters who consider themselves "upper middle class" and "upper class" the PRD has virtually no support. This kind of "virtual" campaigning might actually be a factor in this election.

Its true that the once untouchable AMLO is starting to show signs of weakness; with some other candidates beig more prudent with what they promise and the rest being outright hostile towards him it was bound to happen! His paranoia isnt helping much either...

Anyway, its curious to see that although he is loosing strenght in the student population (which i can testify for) the general feeling is that he will win. Comments like "yeah dont like him and im voting for _____, but still its almost a sure thing AMLO is gonna win.." are very common nowdays, I hear them daily. This might actually create a discrepancy between the general consensus of whos going to win and the actual votes.

This is gearing up to be a really interesting election!

Interesting....Wonder what role and influence the media will have once more reports come out showing how narrower his lead has become.
