Left-wing candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador has an 18-point advantage at the start of formal campaigning for the presidency. Lopez Obrador, who launched his campaign on Sunday, holds 38 percent of the vote, according to a poll by Parametria published on April 2.
Neither Ricardo Anaya, in second-place, nor third-placed Jose Antonio Meade shows any sign of catching up with former Mexico City mayor Obrador.
Obrador could usher in a Mexican government less accommodating toward the United States, where President Donald Trump has stoked trade tensions with Mexico and aggressively moved to curb immigration.
