Polls Declare Socialist the Winner in Chilean Pre-election Debate
Santiago de Chile, Apr 28 (Prensa Latina) Socialist pre-candidate Michelle
Bachelet was far ahead of Christian Democrat opponent Soledad Alvear
during the first TV pre-election debate Wednesday night.
A poll by the Time Research Company revealed 61 percent of those
interviewed agree the former defense minister did better than Alvear,
favored by only 30 percent of interviewees.
Time Research Director Eduardo Albornoz pointed out these results do not
denote intention of vote, but how the people assess the two candidates.
Regarding mastery of the topics, credibility, contact and identification
with the people, those polled considered Bachelet was ahead of Alvear.
While Alvear emphasized the need for measures benefiting the middle class,
which she represents as leader of a historically centrist party, Bachelet
highlighted the need to improve the unfair distribution of wealth.
The two candidates, former cabinet members of the Ricardo Lagos
government, are disputing the presidential candidacy to be defined during
the internal primary elections on July 31.
