Peru: Another Americas Female President?

Taylor Kirk of The Latin Americanist and Tyler Bridges of The Miami Herald both have great posts on Peruvian presidential candidate, Lourdes Flores who – if the polls are correct – is slated to become Peru's first female president. Un Lobo en Perú, however, says that's a big if. In a bizarre “survey about surveys,” by Catholic University, most Peruvians give little or no importance to pre-election polling in the country. Which, perhaps, means take the latest poll posted on Peru Election 2006 with some skepticism.
