Approval Tracker: Mexico's President AMLO

July 01, 2020

Andrés Manuel López Obrador began his presidency of Mexico with enviably high popularity. Will he be able to maintain it? Mexico City-based @carinzissis tracks his approval ratings.

Andrés Manuel López Obrador kicked off his six-year term in December 2018 with popularity levels that would make most leaders green with envy. On top of that, the coalition headed by his Morena party holds a majority in both houses of Congress and most of Mexico’s 32 states. That’s a whole lot of carte blanche that raised questions about who—or what—will serve as a check and balance on López Obrador, frequently referred to as AMLO.

But then along came COVID-19. As the health and economic impacts pummel the country, how will AMLO fair during his second year in office?

AS/COA Online tracks AMLO’s approval ratings from top pollsters.
