All Polling Projects Strong FMLN Victory on March 9th


As El Salvador gets ready for the March 9th runoff presidential elections, all recent polls show the FMLN presidential candidate, Salvador Sánchez Cerén, winning over ARENA’s right-wing candidate, Norman Quijano. Out of the eight polls conducted, all have projected an FMLN victory by a 10-18 point margin, including the most conservative polling centers that had projected a first-round ARENA victory. As ARENA struggles to consolidate its base, political analysts have made it clear that an ARENA victory at this stage would be all but impossible.
