Poll: Nicaragua’s FSLN has 70% Electoral Support for November 7 Presidential Elections

The polling firm M&R Consultores released the results of a survey in Nicaragua that places the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) far ahead of the competition for the upcoming general elections. The pollster estimated that voter intention favors the FSLN party of incumbent Daniel Ortega by 70% for the elections that will take place on Sunday, November 7.

For the vast majority of the population consulted, the most significant factor was that the people have tangible opportunities to improve their quality of life. In addition, 65.2% described the freedom of citizens to think, say, and do as they please as “enough” or “a lot,” within the boundaries of laws and social customs.
