Another interesting piece of info is Mexicans' approval of Calderón compared to that of their respective mayors and governors. The president earned a 53.4 percent approval in the quarter ending in February, which compares to 55.3 percent for mayors and 65.5 percent for governors. All of these have been dropping for the past year or so, and the mayor and Calderón ranking have flip-flopped a number of times since 2007. But the governor's rating has been consistently ten or so points above the other two executive positions. Why is that?

Mitofsky in February
Mitofsky's latest poll shows that despite all the coverage of Juárez and the improving economic figures, 69 percent of the nation thinks that issues related to the economy are Mexico's biggest problem, compared to a little more than a quarter who say that security issues are paramount, although the numbers shifted toward security by almost five points in the past three months.
