PRI Ahead in Nayarit

The PRI remains the odds-on favorite to win the governor's post in Nayarit: Roberto Sandoval Castañeda enjoys the support of 49 percent of the electorate according to a new El Universal poll, compared to 38 percent for PAN candidate Martha Elena García Gómez, and 12 percent for the PRD's Guadalupe Acosta.

However, the lead has shrunk by five points thanks to García Gómez's rising popularity, and is now small enough that you wonder if there will be an increase in pressure on Acosta to bail out, so that the PAN and the PRD unite behind García Gómez. She is, after all, a perredista.
