The lead of Mexico’s leftist presidential candidate narrowed to less than 1.5 percentage points over his conservative rival on Wednesday with results in from almost 88 percent of polling stations in the recount of a fiercely contested election.
It was still to soon to say if Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador’s lead would hold.
This Reuters article is so biased it’s almost comical. The MSM just can’t quite bring itself to accept the obvious, that Obrador is ahead and will probably win. It just wasn’t supposed to happen this way. All the pundits proclaimed the right wing candidate would triumph. Yet now a populist friend-of-Chavez is poised for victory.
Plus, as Left i on the News points out, it wasn’t a recount at all, considering this count included 2.5-3.5 million votes they forgot to count before.
Update: It’s narrowing, we’ll know soon enough.
