    Is this an opinion piece disguised as reporting, MP?

    So, if Cristina has a gang of “corrupt bullies,” while poor Mauricio has just had a “very poor handling of the economy,” the logic conclusion would be that most electors would vote for what here is presented as “the lesser evil” that is, Mauricio, eh?

    Only, calling Cristina the boss of a gang of bullies has not been established by any court of justice to this day.

    And regarding Mauricio and his “very poor handling of the economy,” just wait the day when judges will be able to begin working on hundreds of denunciations of corrupt practices by the current government.

    Oh, and opinion polls as well as several provincial elections all point to a win by Peronism at this point. The information presented above has been slanted to create the idea that FF and MM are in parity today. They are not.
