Approval Tracker: Mexico's President AMLO


Approval Tracker: Mexico's President AMLO

By Carin Zissis

Check support levels for Andrés Manuel López Obrador as he enters his final year in office.

This tracker was initially published March 19, 2019 and has since been updated.

Ever since he began his six-year term in December 2018, Andrés Manuel López Obrador has been described as the “teflon president" with good reason. Despite Mexico facing high violence rates and a slow-growing economy, López Obrador—or AMLO—still commands approval levels north of 60 percent. And that's where it remains as he enters into the final year in office. While his party, Morena, and its coalition lost a two-thirds lower house majority in the June 2021 midterms, it has gained territory when it comes to governorships, mayoralties, and local legislatures. Subsequent elections have given Morena and its allies control of governorships in 23 of the country's 32 states.

Mexico is already looking ahead at who might succeed AMLO in 2024, given that presidents cannot seek reelection. See the polling below to view the competition between political parties and alliances.
