    And, please bear in mind that, this is a pool ordered, paid and published by “Ambito Financiero” one of the fiercest conservative opposition papers:

    ”An overwhelming 83% said that their personal and family situation in the last twelve months improved or is similar, while 78% believe Argentina’ situation in 2011 will improve or remain stable.”

    Four more years of economical and social advances................
    Nice.

    Bubba; You have the right idea, but your figures are a little off. This poll was taken of 1200 people, or 0.0043% of the eligible voters, the total is about 28 million people.

    Even in larger countries like the US and Brazil, it is common to conduct measures opinion with polls of a thousand persons or so. There's nothing uncommon in that, and as long as the sample reflects the general population in demographics, it is statistically relevant.

    @Think

    In the provinces where an opposition-party governor won, I reckon that they already were were under opposition parties, am I right? If this is so, then there's no reason to believe that such the opposition's victories means a defeat for CFK. They mean instead that people want to vote for a continuation of current policies, even if that means voting for the opposition at the local level, and for the ruling party at the national level. That was precisely what happened in Brazil the last year.

    If only the people from Argentina could see their country from the outside. They could see how bad of an image is CFK showing to the world. Who is she kidding?
    Just look at her face in this article and tell me if she doesn't represent arrogance, and dictatorship look!
    No worries....dictators don't last and neither she will!

    Correct.:
    1) In the important province of Santa Fe, the incumbent Socialist party won. Not exactly what i would call opposition though.
    Mr. Binner, the very popular and clever socialist governor of Santa Fe province would make a fine president in 2015.

    2) The other big district where Peronism was defeated is the ”Capital Federal” (2.500.000 millon inhabitants), where a right wing Mayor was re-elected.

    3) Anyhow, all indicates that Cristina Kirchner will be re-elected for a second mandate without any problem.

    “An overwhelming 83% said that their personal and family situation in the last twelve months improved or is similar, while 78% believe Argentina’ situation in 2011 will improve or remain stable. Only 13.3% said the situation will worsen.”

    With the purchasing power of the people's money declining by a quarter per year, all the above statement shows is that you can fool all the people (83%) some of the time (election time),

    and, really, that's all you need to do to hold on to power.

    you forgot to say that Cordoba ( a rich province, doesn't need to kiss ass to CFK) will be also a non K territory .... ;-))
