No favorite between Milei and Massa ahead of runoff

One day before the runoff election between Economy Minister Sergio Massa and Libertarian Congressman Javier Milei, most opinion polls do not agree on who is more likely to become Argentina's next president. The only consensus seems to hinge on the role of undecided voters who make up their minds at the last minute. In addition, many are already certain they will cast a blank ballot in a country where such an act is mandatory. Read full article

    Let's hope my Argentine neighbors come to their senses and elect Milei.

    Having a stable currency alone will vastly improve the lives of everyone.

    Obviously the Argentine people will accept the debits they owe...

    Meanwhile I've returned to the coast, to enjoy time with Madame.

    An eventual election of the Nazi candidate will provoke a popular revolution in Argentina within six months.

    The Nazi Milei is a fool who will destroy the Argentine State and what will be left will perhaps divide the country into small portions of land, just like what happened with the Viceroyalty of Prata.

    These elections are basically between a total corrupt and dispicable individual who will stop at nothing - legal or otherwise - to get himself elected, and a totally new individual with questionable ideas and very little or no experience in handling government affairs. Some even suggest he's a total nut case.

    Not much to choose from. The only certainty is that Argentina is headed for an extremely difficult time ahead, whoever wins.

    You seem to be somehow confused about the political status using the term: NAZI...

    Perhaps, you should consider another term instead...

    As mentioned, Milei has limited experience handling government affairs, let alone Argentine Peronist government affairs.

    Milei also would have limited influence over the Argentine legislature, who will likely obstruct and crucify Milei every chance they can. Still, it is obvious the Kirchnerists, and especially CFK, should go away.

    Maybe it would be best if the Kirchnerists won, they should clean up their own mess. And the Argentines can place the blame for that mess on the right people. Instead of on Milei.

    I would think the Kirchnerists actually want to lose, so they can use their disaster to their advantage. Dirtbags that they are.

    If a people want to choose their leaders like a bunch of third grade schoolchildren, they deserve extremely difficult times. Adults are supposed to recognize shite.

    The whole western free world is like this. Not just this country. The US is right behind this mess. It isn't a coincidence that it will soon be choosing between two shitty candidates also.

    Argentine politics as normal as usual, I see.

    I wonder if this is what Argentina needs, an angry, crazy figurehead who can take on the Ks at their own game while meanwhile his government will actually try to improve things for its citizens quietly in the background?

    I think Macri made some real improvements to Argentina when he was in power but be suffered from being too polite.

    We shall see...
