Elections 2021 | Urpi Torrado: There is an “opening of the gap” between the voting intention of Pedro Castillo and Keiko Fujimori

The general manager of the pollster International Datum, Toasted Urpi, noted that the recent mock voting of this pollster reveals an “opening of the gap” in the candidacies of Pedro Castillo Y Keiko Fujimori a few weeks before the second electoral round and after, weeks ago, a closeness was registered in the intention of votes between both candidates for the Presidency of the Republic.

“In this last week in the drill we see that Keiko Fujimori it would have stalled. There is a difference of tenths between last week and this one that could be in the margin of error, so in the case of it we would speak of stagnation. In the case of Pedro CastilloAlthough the growth is one point and could also be within the margin of error, if we look at the survey and what has happened in the last three weeks, it seems that there is growth and even this translates into an opening of the gap “he analyzed.

“Both candidates had been closing the distance in the intention to vote between them and today it opens to five and six points of difference,” he added.

In an interview with RPP News, Torrado explained that this occurs from a growth in the north of the country from the candidacy of Pedro CastilloUnlike last week, where it was appreciated that Fuerza Popular had “turned around” the voting intention that it had at the beginning of the campaign, when Peru Libre led this region of the country.

“Last week there was a change and there is an important growth of Popular Force, but in this last week we see that Free Peru has recovered votes in the north, adjusting the results, and they are both in the statistical tie. In addition to the north, there is also a recovery in the center, where voting intention (for Castillo) grows up to 70%, “he said.

The analyst also explained that the vote in the south of the country in favor of Pedro Castillo “was stagnant” for a long time, where Keiko Fujimori had managed to advance up to 25% vote intention; however, he highlighted a “grassroots work” on the part of Peru Libre to recover the votes that its candidate had lost.
