INFANTE BONFIGLIO, José María. Options for Democracy in Nuevo Leon Citizens. Rev. mex. opinión pública [online]. 2020, n.28, pp.15-35.  Epub Aug 07, 2020. ISSN 2448-4911.

The imaginaries of democracy admit variations in types and models. This paper presents the analysis of the responses to a questionnaire provided by a sample of 1097 Nuevo Leon citizens on different aspects of electoral behavior, which include, among other things, interpretations and evaluations of some models of democracy. The data were collected in a random survey by household sampling carried out in the first three weeks of the month of June 2018 and sponsored by the State Electoral Commission of Nuevo Leon (Comisión Estatal Electoral de Nuevo León). The models are those that correspond to electoral or representative democracy, participatory democracy, assembly democracy and delegative democracy. Regrettably, the conclusions are not very novel and ratify the deficiencies in the construction of relevant concepts among the voters, in this case of the population of Nuevo León, Mexico.

Keywords : Public opinion; types of democracy; electoral polls; citizenship; knowledge of politics; elections in Nuevo Leon; Mexico.
