Beware of polls in Mexico

According to a new post over at PanAm Post, “there is an average of 30% of undecided voters, as well as a very high number of likely voters who refuse to respond to the pollsters.

I am not surprised by these numbers. They confirm what I hear from Mexican friends face to face or over the phone. Mexicans do not reveal their political choices to strangers on the phone or even to people on the streets asking questions. It’s a security concern rather than politics.

In other words, I am skeptical of the polls coming out of Mexico. The polls have a huge margin of error because of the high number of people who will not participate. By the way, this is similar to what happened in the US in 2016.

Lopez-Obrador may indeed win but I’m just skeptical about the polls.
