A poll asked who is the leader of the opposition and there was an unexpected winner.

It catches the attention of many analysts. the support that President Javier Milei continues to retain, despite the fact that it is applying a severe adjustment to the economy, with a (negative) impact on all social classes. This particularity may not be explained only by the figure of the libertarian, but by what they wake up from the opposite sidewalk.

A new survey to which he agreed Clarion ask precisely about the opposition leadership. And he won (or didn’t win) “nobody”literally, it turned out most chosen option by the interviewees. Below, among the positive votes, it continues to prevail Cristina Kirchner.

The study that revealed this complex moment for the opposition is opinion, one of the pioneering consultancies in online measurements and one of those that best showed the emergence of the Milei phenomenon. In the first half of March she did a survey of 1,000 cases and presented the results with +/- 3% margin of error.

As this newspaper announced, the summary with the main results of the survey were highlighted by the President himself, with one of his usual retweets, which he uses to set the agenda. There, among other things, it was seen how Milei’s image remained at the top and how, even with modest numbers, the expectations of the economy improved.

“For now no one”, at the top

Before getting into the question about the opposition leadership, Opinaia repeats its classic ranking of images of the main politicians. He varies depending on the situation, but always mixing different parties.

The top of the table is little surprising: with 52% positive, the aforementioned appears above miley and the vice president Victoria Villarruel. What draws the most attention is who came last: the former head of Government Horacio Rodríguez Larretawhich combines only 26% in favor and 67% against.

Then comes the question: “Who is the leader of the opposition to the Government of Javier Milei?” The results are divided into three. One, the central one, based on the responses of all those interviewed. Another cuts with Milei’s voters in the runoff and another with Massa’s. In all three cases, with different percentages, the most chosen is “no one for now.” Maximum alert for the opposition.

In the case of the general tablehe “for now no one” harvest the 43%. Who appears below? Cristina Kirchner with the 25%. and the governor Axel Kicillof is the other one that at least reaches two digits, with 17%.

The rest is between bad and very bad: Sergio Massa 9%, Juan Grabois 3%, Horacio Rodríguez Larreta 2% and Myriam Bregman 1%. Juan Schiaretti and Martín Lousteau barely collect tenths.

When the results are concentrated in the opinion of the Union for the Homeland vote in the runoffhe “for now no one” continues to lead but drops to 3. 4%. And even more significant, among the positive Cristina no longer scores but Kicillof. They look like this:

  • Horacio Rodríguez Larreta 1%.
