    Surely the Argentine electorate will not be deceived - they must reject this corrupt and ineffectual government.

    cant see her doing well in the polls, the opposition can smell blood. Even she knew it was comming, hence the trips to tax havens with suitcases

    @1 I anticipate that most will not be deceived, though many are just as filthy and morally depraved as the government itself.

    Poliarquia says Insaurralde is picking some 3-4 % points back, I would like to know from where….But it’s just UNBELIEAVABLE. It really pisses me off. I just don’t get it, why these voters in BsAs province are so into cheesy rubbish they are fed with by the FPV???? The complacency effect to the operation of CFK and Insaurralde’s photos with his hired new GF come up by art of magic in the Argentine showbiz in election week, it’s just that that explains t. Pardon me, but the voters who contribute to the rise of Insaurralde since August are just the are worst kind /”##%$”# there could possibly be. In any normal country with honorable normal people in it, Insaurralde would not have being forgiven the Cabandie Gaffe for saking the officer who pulled a ticket on him. Only in Argentina

    President Cristina Fernándes, is like politicians the world over, who wish to stay in office forever. Its time she finally goes out into the public arena and gets a real job. I as an American know about this type of politician, as we in the USA currently are suffering under the horrible discussing president “Cristina” obama. - Millet

    @6 It's not surprising since the average voter can barely write and their only source of “news” are tabloids and programs like Intrusos that have pure “reality tv” trash and are bought by the government. The real difference this time though is America TV, who supports the government more than ever while at the same time pretending to be moderate, so the people now shallow everything the K say, even if they think they watch unbiased media.

    8) Its really pathetic, and don’t forget Telefe, they take a large portion of the ratings too, they don’t have any political programming anymore and they don’t talk politics at all, however to be silent is to be pro K. They got a legion of rubbish soap actors getting a handy check from the KKs and they keep no secret about their support and approval of the government outside the channels transmition, the problem with these is that a lot of law class women watch these crappy soap “novelas” and series at siesta time or in the evenings. But I have to say that in the way Telefe handled the transition of the last Martin Fierro awards it looks like the bosses of the channel are standing on the fence, just waiting to see what happens or not incurring in the Governments wrath, when the’ve Ks have gone hopefully they will axe all these champagne scum like Soledad Silvera, Echarri, Urtizberea, Duplaa, Peña, Del Boca,etc .
    However Telefe will be happy to leave Clarin the weight of battling the government alone for what is left of the war as it has being doing so for years now.

    Interesting to see the rightwing opportunist Scioli trying to cozy up to Cristina so much; given there isn't much political common ground, surely he'd bail out if she was as finished as people make out?! Still don't think he's going to be president though, and I was never a supporter of a Boudou succession either btw =)

    “The candidate of her making apparently could be Sergio Urribarri, governor of the province of Entre Rios”

    Where does the author get this insight from? Genuinely interested as I've not heard of him before; is he seen as a man of the left who could continue the good work? Or just a random shout out by the journalist? I'd still favour Timmerman to be the Dilma to Cristina's Lula...

    #2 Where indeed? Bizarre title, unrelated to the article as far as I can see...
