Vazquez Set to Win Uruguayan Election by over 14 Points, Latest Polls Say

MONTEVIDEO – Broad Front Party candidate Tabare Vazquez is set to win Uruguay’s presidential elections on Sunday with a margin of 14 points over Luis Lacalle Pou, of the National Party, according to the latest opinion surveys by pollsters Equipos Mori and Cifra.

According to the results of the Equipos poll released on Wednesday, Vazquez and running mate Raul Sendic will garner 53 percent of the vote, 2 percent more than in last week’s polls, while Luis Lacalle Pou and Jorge Larrañaga will take 37 percent, or 16 points fewer than in the earlier survey.

While 5 percent of the voters were still undecided about whom to vote for, another 5 percent said they intended to cast blank votes.

“Tabare Vazquez will be elected president on Sunday and will drive the country’s future for the next five years,” the polling firm said.

The survey was conducted between Nov. 18 and Nov. 25, questioning 700 people and has a margin of error of 3.7 percent.

According to a similar poll conducted by Cifra, Vazquez will take the contest with 52.5 percent of the vote, against 37.8 for Lacalle, again a difference of 14 points, with 4 percent intending to cast blank votes and 5.6 per cent still undecided.

After the first round of the presidential elections on Oct. 26, Uruguay’s leading polling companies acknowledged their errors in earlier surveys which did not predict the left-wing Broad Front’s absolute majority in the parliament confirmed by the official vote count.

Vazquez garnered 47.9 percent of the votes in the Oct. 26 elections, less than the 50 percent required, thus setting the stage for a run-off with Lacalle Pou, who got 30.9 percent, on Nov. 30.
