In general, polls two weeks before the elections marked a preference for Lasso, lower than the result he obtained, and a higher preference for Moncayo, superior than what he obtained, according to the document.
“It suggests in a certain way that probably in those last 10, 15 days there were people who were thinking about voting for Moncayo and then decided to vote for Lasso, probably by a phenomenon of useful vote. There were people that said I do not want that the Government wins and voted for the opposition candidate who is apparently better positioned,” says Simon Cueva, director of TNK Economics.
Lasso received 8% more than the national lists of legislators, and Moncayo a 3% less than the lists of those who supported him: ID, PK, Unidad Popular, Centro Democratico.
