Andrés Manuel López Obrador kicked off his six-year term 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 raises questions about who or what will serve as a check and balance on López Obrador, frequently referred to as AMLO. Could public opinion be one counterweight, depending on how he delivers on campaign promises and top issues for the Mexican electorate?
