Leading candidates lose ground in poll
LIMA | The three front-runners in Peru’s presidential election race have lost ground to leftist Ollanta Humala and former Economy Minister Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, raising uncertainty ahead of the April 10 vote, a poll showed Sunday.
Former President Alejandro Toledo remained the top candidate, but his support slipped 2 percentage points, to 26.6 percent, in the Catholic University poll conducted across the country between March 4 and March 8.
The poll, which surveyed 1,570 people in urban and rural areas, had lawmaker Keiko Fujimori at 19.3 percent, down from 20.3 percent. Former Lima Mayor Luis Castaneda saw his support inch down to 17.3 percent from 17.5 percent.
Support for the left-wing ultra-nationalist Mr. Humala rose 3.5 percentage points, to 15.5 percent, while Mr. Kuczynski gained 7 percentage points, to 10.6 percent.
“The difference between the first- and the fifth-placed candidate has shrunk. Also, the gap between the second- and fourth-placed is a little under 4 percent, which means the outlook for April 10 is highly uncertain,” the pollster added.
