Poll: Opinion leaders more skeptical of drug wars, more optimistic on economy

A Reforma poll comparing attitudes of opinion leaders (academics, politicians, businessmen, and civil society leaders) to those of the general population found leaders to be far more critical of the government’s war on narcos than the general survey population, at the same time they were more optimistic on the economic recovery.  By 2:1, opinion leaders said they thought the government’s strategy in dealing with drug traffickers was mistaken; the general population was essentially evenly divided. Both groups thought the narcos were winning. On the economic crisis, opinion leaders were split 50:50 on whether the economy was recovering, while the general population’s mood continues to be very negative, with more than 70% saying the crisis continued.
