With a reduced and short-term look, it could be a parameter of

how the internal is in the dome of the PRO


In a broader analysis in time and space, I would anticipate a

projection for 2023




half a dozen polls

in recent days

, each one from a different consulting firm, where they evaluate who is the main leader of the opposition.

An unexpected war of polls, which puts in numbers what the leaders themselves have been stressing with actions and words.

The bid is focused on three leaders: two "tough" -

Mauricio Macri


Patricia Bullrich

- and a "moderate" -

Horacio Rodríguez Larreta


To which another dialogue writer could join -

María Eugenia Vidal


First conclusion: the results

do not leave a single and immovable statement


Patricia Bullrich, during the act against violence in Patagonia.

Analysts' interest in this bid is perhaps comparable to that which aroused, even before they took office, the

relationship between Alberto Fernández and Cristina Kirchner


There the central question was who was in charge -and in charge-, but the look is more coincidental: the influence of the vice president was piercing the figure of the formal boss.

always seems the same: do non-official voters

or a more moderate one

as proclaimed by Larreta and Vidal?

If the doubt is one and clear, the answers are various and confusing.

Who has the most votes?

In addition to weighing the role as an opponent, four of the six firms also delved into

the electoral issue


In different ways.

In its national poll, Opinaia asked for a STEP between "hard" and "moderate" of Together for Change.

with 33.2%, followed by Larreta-Suarez (governor of Mendoza) with 24.1 %, Bullrich-Lousteau with 17.2% and last Cornejo-Negri with 6%.

Each one's plans

Not only in their position against Kirchnerism, but also in the times, possible allies and how to play in 2021, there are differences between those who aspire to lead the opposition.

Mauricio Macri

: the ex-president's movements are

in crescendo

after a short post-defeat silence.

Two things were combined: his insistent internal demand for vindication and the fall in approval of the national government.

That is where Macri sees a gap to maintain his role as an anti-K benchmark.

At some point there was speculation about a 2021 nomination -also as a way of judicially shielding oneself with fueros-, but later it was discarded.

2023 seems more open, especially after the suggestive name with which he presented his book: "Primer tiempo".

It is one of the representatives of the toughest wing.

Horacio Rodríguez Larreta

: the head of government perhaps imagined a paved path towards a presidential candidacy when he renewed his mandate in the City.

There was talk of a private agreement with Macri to make it so.

The time and certain movements of the former president seemed to deny it.

Hard Kirchnerism also altered Larreta's plans when he saw his popularity rise excessively among voters of the Frente de Todos and chose him as his political enemy.

In any case, the head of government continues to try to keep his speech moderate and focused on management.

Patricia Bullrich

: perhaps the most active of all the leaders of Together for Change.

With the endorsement of Macri, she assumed the presidency of the PRO and from there she became "the" benchmark in the hard sector.

He began to travel the country and confronted each movement of the national government in the media and on the street.

That made her rise in the polls, particularly among Juntos por el Cambio voters.

She has already decided that she will be a candidate in the City in 2021 and we will have to wait if Larreta allows her to head a consensus list or plant an internal one.

It may be an advance of 2023: the former minister does not rule out a national application or go for the succession in the Head of Government.

María Eugenia Vidal

: the one with the most low profile of the four, is about to reappear with the presentation of her book.

She sounds like a candidate in the City and in the Province: she warned that she will wait until the closing of the lists approaches to decide.

After having fallen in the polls after the defeat, even in silence he was improving his numbers.

As explained, he uploaded his image but is not yet seen as an opposition leader.

She says that the vindication will be given by the votes.

Looking ahead to 2023, he leaves the entire stage open, including a (now unlikely) presidential candidacy.
