More on the Chilean presidential race

It's been a long time since I posted on the Chilean presidential race. Back in August, Sebastián Piñera was viewed by a clear majority as the most likely person to be the next president. Since then, however, the race has gradually clarified as precandidates (most notably Rciardo Lagos) announced they would not run. Former president Eduardo Frei has become the Concertación front runner (the Concertación primary will be in April).

In polls taken both in December and January by Imaginaccion, the two are neck and neck, with about 12% unsure or undecided. A different poll by TNS-Times has Frei 8 point down, 46-48%. That tightens to 5 points when only registered voters are counted.

Ten more months to go, of course, but I think it's interesting that even in this time of economic crisis the Alianza still cannot land a knockout blow.
