    “The poll, published by the Buenos Aires newspaper Página/12, was carried out by CEOP with a sample of 1.288 citizens across the country, and coincides with other polls published over the past weeks.” Página/12 hahaha, so serious! In this country we are 40000000 people! When they asked me I said, yes, I'll vote for Cristina haha. These polls are based on lies :)

    “The popularity of President Fernández remains up due to support from people “under 50 years of age of low socioeconomic level and residents of the provinces” pointed out the director of CEOP, Roberto Bacman.” This means, people who are unemployed but receive money from the government who steals the money from the people that work to pay those who don't. :)

    More than 50% of people voted against Cristina, but sadly, those people voted all for different candidates, so she was elected with 46% of all the votes. If she wins, that would be a disaster, she'll never make it through another 4 years government. But anyway, I'm always counting on wind and storms, she travels a lot, and things can happen, engines stop and good bye!

    I - whatever you are smoking then I suggest you stop! We Brits don't hate CFK, we find her amusing, bit like a clown really. A clown who is few steps short of a tango. Is she medicated?

    Why would we hate her? Can't say she has done anything of note? Let me know when she does because I will probably miss it.

    arquero, it's not my fault if you reason: Cristina = Argentina, with your thoughts, someone as great as Sophie Scholl wouldn't have been German for opposing the Third-Reich. I don't like lies and double standards. I don't like rich people who act like poor, I don't like anti-capitalists who are capitalists, I'm sorry, but I don't like them, I'm not like you :) I love my country, I don't like this woman, because she's a liar, and she steals money, again, I'm sorry, I don't like them, I'm not like you :) People like Jaime is one of your favourites I guess, I don't like him, Cristina loves him :) it's you people the problem of this country, if you ask me, my idea of a great Argentina is one without people like you arquero, but, anyway, one day things will change for the better. This just a matter of time, and when things change, people like you will leave the country because it will be not your place to live anymore :)

    The polls show that no other politician in Argentina has a slim chance to become president, the ritch people who can afford to surf the net will never like the K's, anyone shouting their mouth off against the K should move to Malvinas with the queer illegal aliens there who need daddy's help for everything. #7 I can smoke a joint and never forget that I am writing in an Argentine report regarding Argentina's future president, about you ?? do you ever forget that you are in the wrong place ?? honestly when you mention CFK did you not know you are refering to Argentina's president and not KFC ?? you'll notice that Argentines can careless what the brits do or stop doing in UK, maybe that is the reason you are all here, the only way to experience Argentina is by being here with us, get use to it because that is the only way a brits will ever see and experience Argentina or you can join the Malvinas ilegal aliens and float on a icy rock drifting midocean, but you already live in UK it wouldn't be any different.

    #fredbba.....i have never voted in my life in any elections....
    unfortunately almost majorty of all countries ' politicians are corrupt
    none of them are extra-personalities...etc...etc
    look at Tunisia ...after 23 years he expelled by 1,5 tonnes gold...
    look at Thailand...look at to all other ones...
    everybody hates on their administrators at all levels on..evertime !
    remember 2000-2001 Argentina...remember Kennedy assasination
    remember Olof Palme.......
    all countries are spesific problematic !
    (my view is the most wizard and skillfull leaders are African ones..)

    “the ritch people who can afford to surf the net will never like the K's” Are you talking about Cristina, her daughter, her son and her friends? Because they are all filthy rich if you don't know. The problem is that when you take the money from people who work to give this money to people who don't work, one day, those people who work will stop working and then you'll have not only 20000000 but 40000000 poor, you need to creat jobs instead of stealing the money, but all these people love this governmet for that, this government gives them money and they don't need to do anything but vote for her :) I don't care about ideologies, you can shove them up your arse I.
    I know that Cristina is an employee, that's all I know, she's not a Queen. I can't have any respect for a woman who poops on millions of Argentines. You do it for your ideologies, I do it because Argentina will be better off without people like Cristina and you. You can call me wehatever you like, it doesn't matter, really, Argentina and Malvinas is one thing, Cristina is just a woman who loves money as much as she loves botox. Malvinas will be there with or without Cristina, they have been there before and they will be there after Cristina. Following that blind woman you're be heading for a fall I. I hope it's only you, kirchnerists, and not the entire country, but I'm afraid it's 40000000 people living in this country. Viva la patria, la de San Martín, not la Patria Bolivariana, not la patria de Chávez and certainly not la patria del Che Guevara.

    What is the fifference Argentina is giving money away to people who don't work anyways Malvinas is one, the social unrest with the homeless in Bs. As. and Bolivians taking our parks, Canada sends me a cheque every moth in tax returns not that i need it, but that is how we keep the economy a float, cash makes the world go around this is why in 2001 the banking world in Argentina stoped and when it was USA trun to croak the money was there for the bank to grab, just like in Argentina “NOT”, it's our money take it just like Bolivians took it, you can sit there and cry and moan like most brits and ignorants, but if you don't have a candidate better then the KFC you might as well pick a thieve to steal the rest of Argentinas wealth, o yea and don't vote, just sit here and complain that is how Argentina will be fixed “NOT”, I don't have to tell you nothing “solo mira y presta atencion”, Viva Milagro Sala la Tupac, Argentina y la k!!!! by the way don't forget to thank Chavez for filling your gas tank and when you have a chance light a candle for IMF so you can keep your capitalist democratic utopian debt.
    “no hay peor ciego que el que no quiere ver”, how much money do you get from IMF to talk like that #12 I would hate to think that you are expocing your ignorance for free.
    Patria o Muerta, Viva La Revolucion.

    7 Beef,

    Is the clown with the white feathers available for birthday parties?

    : P

    I for one support Cristina Fernández for reelection, I think Argentina is on the right track. I've seen great things accomplished in the scientific field, and I see great things happening in the near future.

    What many of you should wonder is ¿why, in spite that cristinas's party lost the elections in 2009, now, in 2011, she leads all the polls?. Even i didn't vote for her party in 2009, however, the situation is very diferent since many monthes ego, the congress that we have since march of last eyar, is the worst in years, i think that most people realised that they made a very bad decition in 2009.
    Anyway i am not going to vote cristina surely in october, because i dont tolerate that the government is suspected of corruption cases, i will vote for ricardo alfonsin, however i recognize that mrs kirchner made many achievements since she toke the power, beside what i admire from her, is her bravery.
    If alsonsin is not elected as our next president, then i hope that cristina wins the election, because all the rest of the candidats except for alsfonsin, are much worst than her.
    I read the comments of most you, i respect them, but all your opinions are based of misinformation, and oblique information, there are planty of aspects that most you ignore.

    no Axel ! I don't wonder, I know why Chritina is doing good at the polls, the readons are the same as in every other nation that has too many corrupts, who else can people trust ?? it might be easy to tell people that Chritina is the wrong candidate but at the end of the day you have to come up with an alternative, and the answer is the same, none.

    I agree on some aspects of your comment, i already said that i dont tolerate that the government is suspected of corruption cases, in this is why i wont vore surely cristina, although i recognize that she made great achievements for us since she toke the power.
    However when i see all the rest of the candidats, i realise that only ricardo alfonsin is a good alternative, and all the rest of the candidats are really much worst than cristina, i ask many people, ¿can we trust macri, duhalde, cobos, carrio, sanz ?, they all are the candidats of the stablishment, the only one thing that they did, is to deffend the interests of powerfull corporations, like clarin, and after the exact the government in a hipocrite way, an improve in the salary of the retired people, however all of them voted against the nationalization of the pention sistem, and against the actual sistem of social movility for the retired poeple.
    This is why i insist that we must have so much memory, and analise deeply what we are going to do in october, otherwise we will feel once and again in the trick of all those sons of a bitch.

    Now there is a name I wanted to hear, the son of ex-president Raul Alfonsin, all is good but there is already a prolem, he is not popular in parlament, as I recall his father was the inventor of privatization in Argentina to get out of debt have a plan and set the economy in the right path in 1983-84, every peronist voted against him at ever turn, he was voted out in favor of Menem and Menem did exacly what Alfonsin had planned exept rather then pay FMI Menem made the debt bigger and stripped Argentina of all national indurtyes. Argentina's hots for peronistas cripple the political powerhouse wich is in constant disorder, I watched marci do his victim roll with the homeless a few months ago, if he is going to miss every oportunity to create jobs and deveop the city the way he did in that issue, I am sure with marci we will reach new lows, Alfonsin could be a good option, but he migh need to do something extraordinary to be elected in october.

    You are right, anyway in the polls there is not a big diference betwen alfonsin and macri, maybe if thre is a ballotage betwen them, i have the hope that alfonsin can win. All the rest that you say is true, alfonsin tryed to private unless in a partial way, aerolineas argentinas, and peronisem rejected it strongly, however when menem toke te power they sold most our patrymony, anyway in spite that i criticise hardly some aspects of cristina's government, i also reivindicate her bravery, and many of the achievements that she made since 2007.
    Macri is a continuation of menem's policys, even he said in diferent oportunitys that menem was the constructor of argentina, ¿what can we hope of some one who thinks like macri?, please, this is why i will always insist that what we neeed the most, is to have memory and resposability for october.
