According to Mitofsky, 27 percent of Mexicans say that the PAN was the big loser on July 5, compared to 15 percent for the PRD. Sixty-seven percent said that the PRI was the big winner, compared to a slightly blind 15 percent who said the PAN was the day's victor, and 5 percent who said the same about the PRD. Among those who believe the biggest loser was AMLO, Marcelo, and the gang: Felipe Calderón. In fact, he said so in front of an audience in Uruguay, which would certainly be a taboo injection of partisan politics in a foreign setting in the US, but has sparked no great outcry here.
