New polls and a key piece of information: without Cristina Kirchner, how tall are the other Frente de Todos candidates?


With the self-excluded vice, the polls evaluate Alberto Fernández, Massa, Wado de Pedro and Kicillof.


self-exclusion of Cristina Kirchner

from the electoral scene, first under the influence of fury over an unprecedented conviction for corruption and then under the pretext of being banned, caused a

political upheaval

within the Frente de Todos.

And outside: not only because of the speculations of her rival opponents, but also in the laboratories of pollsters, who began to recalibrate their studies.

The questions are piling up:

how tall are the other pro-government candidates?

Do the chances of the Government improve or worsen with the ex-president run from the offer?


analyzes this Monday

six national surveys

that have evaluated these variables in recent weeks.

Most were commissioned by the opposition.

First alert: there is no single and certain conclusion, although there are some indications.

The real impact of the move is not yet clear

, probably because the loss of the former president does not even seem confirmed.

In the recent meeting of the PJ, the announcement of an operative outcry was formalized that it is not known where it will end.

Kirchner militants posted posters last week denouncing the "ban" of Cristina.

Constitutionalists warn that until she has a firm conviction she can be a candidate.

The starting point is not simple for the ruling party.

As this newspaper has been telling for more than a year,

Cristina is clearly the candidate who best measures in the Front of All


At a general level, she gets two thirds of the votes in the space when she is evaluated for PASO.

In other words: she is unbeatable in an internal one and would even guarantee entry to a possible ballot.

Her Achilles heel of hers: she has so much rejection that it would be almost impossible for her to prevail in that hypothetical heads-up.

And what about the vice corrida?

Two phenomena occur in parallel: in favor of the ruling party, Cristina's votes roughly remain within space;

but those votes do not go to a specific candidate, but are distributed and open a new scenario, with several relatively even applicants.

Point for the worn-out Alberto Fernández, who to get off asked to bring him an opponent who beat him by knockout.

In the statistics today it does not appear.

floors and ceilings

Four of the national polls that


analyzed and measured the main pro-government candidates, evaluated what is known as

electoral floors and ceilings


The safe vote of each leader and how far they could go, countering their rejection.

Within an even and dispersed scenario, a first division in two could be made.

For one,

there are three relatively competitive candidates


In this order:

Governor Axel Kicillof, Minister Sergio Massa and President Alberto Fernández


With one caveat: the Buenos Aires president has already warned that he prefers to try an encore in the Province, although he also clarified that he will do what Cristina asks.

The one who is left out of that group, and

continues to be relegated for now

in the polls, is the Minister of the Interior,

Eduardo "Wado" de Pedro


According to the average of the four recent polls that measured floors and ceilings,

Kicillof has the highest secure vote, with an average of 13.5%


They are followed by

Massa and Fernández

, with

11% and 10%


De Pedro closed with 4.3%.


when the probable vote is added ,

Massa improves


, reaching a

ceiling of 36.5%


against 29.6% for the governor and 28.5% for the President


De Pedro

ends with

less than 12%


With a negative extra for the camper minister: although he maintains a lack of knowledge close to 25%, his rejection is high (63.3% average) and he does not have much room to grow.

If these numbers are compared with those of Cristina, the big difference is the floor: the vice has an average safe vote of 21 points, according to those same pollsters.

The numbers for the STEP

Regarding the numbers for the primaries, the dispersion

and the difference between the Kicillof-Massa-Fernández trio versus the rest

is confirmed .

And in this residual one could also include for now other leaders such as Daniel Scioli or Máximo Kirchner, who when they were evaluated in the PASO had marginal numbers.

In this case, there were six national polls that raised PASO competition with various FdT candidates excluding Cristina.


those who showed the best performance

, always within very limited gaps,

were once again Kicillof and Massa


When the governor appeared in the offer (the six studies raised 11 different scenarios), he was always the official with the highest figure, except in one case.

He finished with an average of 10.9%. 

But some proposals did not include Kicillof and there the Economy Minister raised his average, which was



As for the President, the other candidate along with Massa measured by all the polls, closed with an average of 8.8%, just a little lower.


, Máximo Kirchner and De Pedro

were only evaluated by a consultant (Opinaia) and they formed a ladder: 3%, 2% and 1% respectively.

If the gaze is widened and includes the opposition, with these numbers, the Frente de Todos usually ends up second as space in the PASO, below Together for Change and with Javier Milei's libertarians threatening from below.
