How do you see the figure of Sanchez Ceren?
"I think he can improve his ratings, but I'm not sure that it will be enough to beat Norman Quijano. We have to see if Quijano manages to maintain such levels of popularity. But I must say one thing: I do not think the erosion that the FMLN candidate candidate suffered is solely the result of the candidate. In this case one must add significantly the deteriorating public image that the FMLN has had in recent times, especially because of the performance of their legislative faction. The fact that the FMLN has led and starred in the conflict with the Constitutional Chamber and has spearheaded this affront to judicial independence, I think it will have significant electoral costs. The will be in 2014."Sanchez Ceren is not a popular candidate and he never will be. It's doesn't look like he is going to win but 2014 is a long time off. I'd say his chances will improve if he is able to get Oscar Ortiz or David Munguia Payes on board as his VP, but that might not be enough. The FMLN has also recently given up its opposition to dollarization which might help.
However, Jeanette also says that Sanchez Ceren hasn't been helped by the recent performance of the FMLN, especially its legislative bloc. That's possible, but Sanchez Ceren's popularity has been quite low for the last few years and it's unclear that it has gone lower because of frustration with the FMLN. In the most recent Mitofsky poll, we see that the percentage of Salvadorans identifying with the FMLN increased from 26% to 29% from May to August - the period in time where frustration with the FMLN was increasing because of the most recent constitutional conflict.
It's possible that the FMLN's recent behavior is dragging down Sanchez Ceren's support, but I'd need more information before being convinced.
