"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Mexico's Upcoming Elections - A Dictator at Our Door? UPDATED!

Previously I presented an article on Mexican elections from The Weekly Standard here and the disturbing possibilities that a pro-Hugo Chavez/Fidel Castro candidate could become president of Mexico.
Reader and fellow blogger at Need to Know/Latin America passed on the following update:
Just a month ago Mexican Presidential Candiate Andrés Manuel López Obrador looked unbeatable, with a 10% lead in the Mexican presidential race. However the latest edition of a monthly poll published by national newspaper El Universal is showing a different picture. Here are the numbers:
-Andrés M. López Obrador, Alianza Por el Bien de Todos: 38% (42% in March).
-Felipe Calderón, National Action Party: 34% (32% in March).
-Roberto Madrazo, Institutional Revolutionary: 25% (24% in March).
Felipe Calderón is gaining momentum just when he needs it, two months prior to election day, whereas López Obrador is quickly losing ground. This trend heralds a dramatic finale.
We can only hope the poll data is accurate, the trend continues and Calderón is successful in his bid to replace Vincente Fox.
