Alberto Fernandez and his running mate Cristina Fernández de Kirchner of the ‘Front For All’ Party lead the polls for the upcoming presidential elections in Argentina with over 50% in the first round.
A new poll published on Monday by Gustavo Córdoba & Asociados, along with at least four other major polling agencies in Argentina, have all given the Fernández-Kirchner ticket large leads over President Macri in the upcoming elections. They have polled Fernández-Kirchner at 50.7 percent while the incumbent Macri is trailing at 30.1 percent.
Other polling agencies who released their figures this week include Clivajes Consultores (Fernández-Kirchner 52,62 percent, Macri 32,54 percent), Ricardo Rouvier & Asociados (Fernández-Kirchner 51,5 percent, Macri 34,9 percent), and Oh Panel! (Fernández-Kirchner 50,0 percent, Macri 31,0 percent).
Under Argentinian electoral law, a first-round victory requires 45 percent, or 40 percent if the winner is at least 10 points ahead of the closest rival.
