MORENO, Alejandro. Mexican Public Opinion in the aftermath of the 2006 Elections. Perf. latinoam. [online]. 2008, vol.16, n.31, pp. 39-63. ISSN 0188-7653.

In this article, I analyze public opinion about the 2006 Mexican presidential election in the context of the post-election conflict. My goal is to determine which individual-level variables influenced opinions about the post-election conflict. The analysis focuses on individual positions about the election fairness, confidence in the electoral Tribunal, claims for a full recount, and the public's stands on street protests and mobilization, among others. I use the Mexican component of the Comparative National Election Project (CNEP), conducted for the first time in Mexico in 2006 as a two-wave, preelection and postelection, panel design. The results highlight the importance of political predispositions in the analysis of public opinion in Mexico.

Palabras llave : mexican public opinion; 2006 presidential election; post-election; conflict; political predispositions; polarization effect.
