Peru: Humala Bounces Back in New Polls

Both Leftside and Justin Delacour mention leftist presidential candidate, Ollanta Humala's recent bounce-back in pre-election polls. Fabiola Bazo quotes pollster Alfredo Torres in saying that whichever candidate is able to distance him/herself from outgoing President Toledo will win. Finally, Un Lobo en Perú describes a museum exhibit in Lima by the newspaper El Comercio, which is meant to give voters historical context as they head to the polls.
