Mexican leftist has 18-point lead as campaign starts
April 3, 2018 - Linkse kandidaat Andrés Manuel López Obrador heeft een voorsprong van 18 procent bij de start van de formele campagne voor het presidentschap
Lopez Obrador, who launched his campaign on Sunday, holds 38 percent of the vote, according to a poll by Parametria published on April 2.
Neither Ricardo Anaya, in second-place, nor third-placed Jose Antonio Meade show any sign of catching up with former Mexico City mayor Obrador.
Obrador could usher in a Mexican government less accommodating toward the United States, where President Donald Trump has stoked trade tensions with Mexico and aggressively moved to curb immigration.
