sympathy and antipathy
When asked which politicians they felt sympathy for, Lacalle Pou received 47% affirmative answers, while José Mujica obtained 45%.
“Both leaders have a considerable advantage over the rest, of approximately 10 points. In that second step are located three leaders of the Front: the Mayor of Canelones, Yamandu Orsithe Mayor of Montevideo, Carolina Cosséand senator Daniel Astori are located on the 35% axis. Orsi did not appear among the most recognized leaders, but nevertheless he has a significant level of sympathy”, explained Equipos Consultores in the summary of the opinion study.
Four of the first five positions in percentage of sympathy are members of the Broad Front but, on the contrary, from position 5 onwards, four of five are members of the government. These are: the Minister of Health, Daniel Salinas (31% sympathy); the Secretary of the Presidency, Álvaro Delgado (31%); the Minister of Economy and Finance, Azucena Arbeleche (30%); the vice president, Beatriz Argimón (28%); and former president Julio María Sanguinetti (28%).
In the other direction, the senator for the National Party, Juan Sartori, has the highest level of antipathy, with 59%, followed by Guido Manini Ríos, with 52%.
Others who enjoy a high level of antipathy “but less than half,” said Equipos, are Pedro Borbaberry, Sanguinetti, and the Minister of the Interior, Luis Alberto Heber.
In the environment of 40% antipathy are the FA senator, Óscar Andrade; the former foreign minister, Ernesto Talvi; the Labor Minister, Pablo Mieres; the mayor of Montevideo, Carolina Cosse; and the former coalition candidate, Laura Raffo.
