Support for Calderón's Crime Policy
Nothing particularly shocking comes out of this new poll from Milenio, which says that around 70 percent are either completely or somewhat against various forms of legalization (i.e. in Mexico, California, or the US), with the majority of that number choosing "completely" as their modifier. Seventy percent also favor the anti-crime policy as Calderón is presently conducting it, which is roughly in line with what we've seen from other surveys, and another reminder that calling off the dogs will be a tricky proposition should the next president be of a mind to do so. Interestingly, close to 60 percent agreed with Calderón's recent assertion that Fox was slow in reacting the surge in drug trafficking as a danger to the nation.
