Popularity and the Priístas

No real changes here: according to BGC/Excélsior, Enrique Peña Nieto remains the most popular and the best known of all the active priístas in Mexico, followed by Beatriz Paredes, Francisco Labastida (whose present profile isn't too big, but who was a previous presidential candidate), and Manlio Fabio Beltrones. Like most of the priístas on the list, Peña Nieto's ratings have been steadily dropping, which perhaps points to a not-too-distant future when Mexico is fed up with the tricolor and no longer voting it into power in election after election.

Points for regular Mexicans: the priístas with the worst images according to the general public were its lovely pair of authoritarian governors in Puebla and Oaxaca, respectively: Mario Marín and Ulises Ruiz.
