Open to an Alliance
It was interesting to see that in Torreón, where the PRI has dominated the last few electoral cycles, only 37 percent of respondents to an online poll from El Siglo expressed disapproval of a PRD-PAN alliance in the July gubernatorial elections. That could be interpreted either as overwhelming confidence in the prospects of Rubén Moreira, or a sign of the lack of deep roots of the PRI in Torreón (until maybe four years ago, it was a PAN town). Based on the 40-50-point advantage of Moreira in polls, I'll go with the former.
