A prediction - Mexico's July 5, 2009 Elections Without any doubt, the winning party will be …

 



The boycott of the election by registered voters will gain a clear plurality, around 48%, and possibly a majority, of registered voters.


The 2009 Mexican boycott includes those who deliberately nullified their ballots and those who simply chose not to vote.  Early reports indicate that 8% are actively nullifying their vote (voto nulo) and that another 40% of registered voters are not showing up at all.  That combined figure, 48% or so, will handily beat the vote totals for the ruling PAN Party and the former rulers, the PRI, without out any doubt.  While totals will change, there is no way that PAN and PRI can overcome the anulistas and those who stayed away from the polls.
