Kirchnerite candidates in four main districts ahead of mid term election trail behind

The latest round of public opinion polls for the coming mid term elections next October in Argentina don’t fare well for President Cristina Fernandez particularly in the country’s four main electoral circumscriptions, Buenos Aires province, Buenos Aires City, Santa Fe and Cordoba.

Cristina Fernandez target of having an ample majority in Congress is in peril

In the province of Buenos Aires, which is decisive for any Argentine election since it represents 35% of the electorate, a dissident candidate from the ruling coalition Sergio Massa, is well ahead of the Cristina Fernandez sponsored hopeful; likewise in the city of Buenos Aires where the opposition is set to consolidate, and in Santa Fe and Cordoba the local leaders feel no pressure from the Kirchnerite candidates.

Next August and according to Argentine law political parties will be holding open, obligatory and simultaneous primaries to nominate candidates for the October mid term election when half the Lower House (127) and a third of the Senate (24) is in dispute.

If President Cristina Fernandez, or her acolytes, want her to bid again for the presidency she must have a clear majority in congress to amend the constitution, but the reading from the opinion polls is that currently, four months away, even her current greater number of lawmakers is in dispute.

According to pollsters Management & Fit, Tigre Mayor Sergio Massa leads by at least ten points over his Kirchnerite runner up, 35.1% to 25%, and other opposition candidates are closing in with 16.2% and 13.9%. The province of Buenos Aires will be choosing 35 members of the Lower House.

In the City of Buenos Aires controlled by conservative Mayor Mauricio Macri, his Senate candidate, Gabriela Michetti already has a 47.4% support, at least twenty points ahead of Kirchnerirte Daniel Filmus who wants to repeat. Other non-Kirchnerite options are also moving in to dispute the remaining half.

Candidates for the Lower House in the City of Buenos Aires are non-Kirchnerites and Cristina Fernandez sponsored hopeful stands with 15% support.

The situation is not different for the government in two other crucial circuits; Cordoba and Santa Fe. In Cordoba the leader Juan Schiaretti has the support from Governor Jose Manuel de la Sota and a vote intention in the range of 28%. The Kirchnerite figures in position three.

Finally in Santa Fe the turf of Socialist Hermes Binner, his candidate is comfortably ahead in coalition with another opposition party, and has a vote intention of 52%. The Kirchnerite candidate ranks third when not fourth.

In the October mid term elections, 24 Senate seats and half the Lower House will be in dispute. The province of Buenos Aires is renewing 35 Lower House members; in the City of Buenos Aires, three Senators and 13 Deputies; Santa Fe and Cordoba, 9 Lower House seats each. The four districts are choosing 66 Deputies and 3 Senators.

The job is only half done and the Kirchnerites need more time.

'Argentina is once again wrestling with its long-time enemy, inflation. Now it appears history may soon repeat itself, as Argentina teeters on the edge of another currency crisis. Capital controls and a deteriorating account balance - coupled with anti-business policies - have put a squeeze on the Argentine peso.'

@12 that´s impossible I´m afraid. The deputies and senators renewed are the ones from 2009, when CFK also lost. Even then they got 30% of the votes, enough to keep a mayority. According to the polls, they´ll also get at least 30% and they´ll still win in all save the wealthy provinces and Capital Federal. At best they´ll lose one or two guys but they just need to bribe more politicians. The only winner in these elections is Massa, who is very much like Kirchner, but not as insane as Cristina YET.
The Kirchners aren´t lost until 2015 and even then their followers will still join the winner and do the same stuff as now.

“If President Cristina Fernandez, or her acolytes, want her to bid again for the presidency she must have a clear majority in congress to amend the constitution”

Thats rubbish; yes, Cristina needs a majority to change the constitution and run again (something I seem to be more in favour of than her at the moment!) but how can a defeat in these elections prevent an “acolyte” (love the unboiased terminology!) ie a supporter of the left project to stand in two years time?!

Btw as #21 says Massa is not as insane as Cristina, yet, does that mean he's a good lefty too? Why is he running against her candidates, simple opportunism or is there any difference of policy?

Finally, what a nice picture =) And congratulations to Cristinita on the birth of her first grandchild, Nestor, which doesn't seem to have been covered here.

Yes, he´s a lefty, not that I could ever find much sense in the left and right monikers. Of course Massa is an opportunist, but all politicians are, we´ll never know what his policy will be until he becomes President. Not that is matters, all Peronists will just steal and screw the people regardless of “policy”, that´s their goal. And as long as the Peronists pull all the strings and the people keep believing the problem are the politicians rather than the system nothing will change.

You could not find that in the internet........or the work concept foreign to you. BTW, 3 zoned central air is an amazing concept.

Yankee I was talking to relatives in BA (recoletto) last night and it is extremely cold (for their winter) and it might snow on Sunday. I think the last time it snowed in BA (city) was 2005. Boston still moves through 8 to 12 inches of snow. I would love to see those maniacs driving those buses in 1 inch of snow.

PS
Tobi.....I would abandon your post on the tomato article also with your post on trade deficits equals debt.....foolish little boi

#54 I write a lot because I know a lot. All your turnips fail to see the the greatest country on earth is the Argentine empire. We steal, pillage and plunder from the Argentine serf's all in the great name of Peron. We will not be done until we've destroyed everything in our path..........Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Ecuador, ( Uruguay and Paraguay do not count) Venezuela. Then.....the great farm nation of Mercosur will rule the entire continent and plan the world take over......once we rid those pesky little Brits from my islands. But simple task at hand...........hahahahahahahaha!

MY QUESTION AGAIN.
I understand that many of you must feel exultant for the result of that poll, however, there is something that you all should wonder.
Is sergio massa the anthitesis of kirchnerism, like macri, de la sota, de narvaez or carrió are?.
As an argentine citizen, and as a kirchnerist activist, i don't have a bad opinion about massa, although he is not a leftist politician, and beyond that he has a conservative origin, he is not a reactionary guy, like all the rest of the people who i named, who are aligned to the policies which became arg. into one more u. s. .a' s backyard.
While it is true that he included some conservative politicians in his politic platform, it's also true that he included economist ricardo delgado, who has a progresist ideology of economy, and former director from u. i. a., ignacio de mendiguren, who has an industrialist view like kirchnerism.
On the other hand, he praises many of the decisions taken by the government in the last 10 years, he says it all the time, like he did in página12 some weeks ago. Actually what he wants to do, is to implement a more intelligent strategy than what most his opponent colleagues did, who many of them often invalid most what kirchnerism made, such a clumsy strategy took them to the worst defeat since 1983, in the presidential elections of 2011.
Anyway, i'll vote for insaurralde, who is a great k candidat.
Respecting the so called re-reelection, c. f. k. has said in different oportunities that she's not interested in reforming the constitution, in order to include an emmendation, which allows her to run for a third period. Anyway, beyond her wishes, we can't ignore that although her party makes a good election in october, it will be hightly difficult to get the two necesary thirds of deputies and senators, in order to include that emmendation. For all these rasons, i have always said that this discussion is not more than a solgan, characteristic of most our mediocre opponent politicians.

You are both right and wrong, in the UK mineral rights do belong to the landowner except gold, silver, oil, gas and coal.
Land owners DO get paid for allowing fracking companies to use their land - just like they would if they leased it for windmills or any excavations, drilling etc.......but no royalties........“So you want to lease my land for Gas.......tempt me!”
Also licenses held by companies do not include rights of access over anyones land......so deals would have to be reached etc.

A “political” rally which her government organized, where she just talks about herself, all she's done for the people and gets thousands of people to clap, cheer and wave banners in her support. She's not able to hold any other type of forum. And the people attending? Who are they? Poor people who live in shantytowns (villas) as we call them, who are paid between 20-50 pesos to attend, they get served a sausage sandwich (called Choripan) and given cheap wine (that comes in cardboard packs called Tetra). Then they show this on television for days and days with all the people cheering for her to make it looks like she has all of this political support!

DESPITE SOME REACTIONARY PEOPLE.
I love discussing about politic, beside, i never omit that i am a critic kirchnerist, and i have never had any problem in discussing with people who are detractors of kirchnerism. However, i stop being tolerant and respectful, when i see such a shameful lack of respect, like what A_VOICE manifested.
What A_VOICE expressed, is actually the tipicall reactionary thought, characteristic of some social sectors, who belong to the middle class, who due to the fact that they don't have enough arguments in order to refute c. f. k's policies, the only one thing that they can do, is to insult, or make misserable comparisons, publishing too partial analysis, which are based on distorted information mostly.
I have never omited that c. f. k's govt. has flagrant contradictions, big mistakes, or negative aspects, like some denounces of corruption cases.
I recognize them because it's necesary to have intellectual honesty, in order to discuss about something so complicated like politic is.
Anyway, despite those aspects, according to my ideologies, i have always thought that c. f. k's govt. is the best of the last 46 years, due to many of the achievements that we could get thank to her policies, and kirchner's. In my opinion, before c. f. k., the best president was d. r. arturo illia, who had ben broken down by a militar coup d'etat in 1966.
When i have some time, i am an activist in movimiento evita, and i don't get any payment in order to defend what i consider like the best for the country, like many reactionary people think. In the same way that i don't think that detractors of kirchnerism, who often protest against c. f. k's govt. get pay in order to criticise her administration.
Being detractor of any politic project, doesn't justify the lack of respect, the low level of debate, irresponsable comments, or hypocresy, which are characteristic aspects of many people in our society, and in this forum. Anyway, not all detractors are rectionary.

You state that CFK is the “best Argentine President in 46 years” and has accomplished so much for the benefit of Argentina.
You also state that you do not get paid to say those things.

Not sure what a “TOMPEST” is, but it must be something terrible - all in upper case!!!

Axel is a queer one. He does seem to be distinct and he does appear to be in earnest, but the points he tries to make , if any, are completely obscured.
Apart from saying that“ CFK is the best President in 46 years”, he has nothing to say.
Reminds me a bit of “Sussie”, but a Sussie who is back on his meds.
