The first poll since the February 19 election gives Guillermo Lasso a 52.1% to $47.9% edge over Lenin Moreno in Ecuador’s presidential race. The poll also shows that 19% of voters are undecided.
The poll was conducted by Cedatos Febraury 23 and 24 and has a 3.4% error rate. Cedatos, a partner with the international Gallup polling group, was one of only two exit polls that predicted a runoff election between Lasso and Moreno following last Sunday’s election.
The good news for Moreno, according notes accompanying the poll, was that in the February 19 election, he collected a larger proportion of the undecided vote.
According to Cedatos, the poll was compiled from 2,862 personal interviews conducted in 15 cities and towns.
