    Looks like the usual Bolsa Familia or Pepe's handout out to the stinking poor to me is the attraction to the female candidate.

    And Saint Elaine would have us believe that Fujimori has a clear lead with 50.3% of valid votes in a mock voting exercise conducted on Wednesday and Thursday, compared to Kuczynski's 49.7%.

    Just to explain AGAIN that is not true when you take into account the contra tolerance of 2.3 point margin of error, up or down means The Woman would get 48.0% and The Man 52.0%, so the Man would win.

    Basically NOBODY can claim a win at this point.

    Only the election proper will provide that, just like Brexit!
