On July 1st Mexican citizens went to the polls to choose their next president, congress, mayor of Mexico City, and six governors. The victory of Enrique Peña Nieto and the Institutional Revolutionary Party was predicted by pollsters, but his margin of victory was less than expected. The Mexico Institute invited several experts to analyze the results, what went wrong with the polling, and how the narrower margin of victory may affect the incoming PRI government, as well as Mexico’s economy, security, and relations with the United States.
