IPSOS POLL.-

Fujimori is catching more voters among undecided than Humala. Centrist lawyer Keiko Fujimori has a small lead over left-wing “chavist” Ollanta Humala, ahead of Peru’s June 5 presidential run-off, a poll by survey firm Ipsos showed on Sunday.

The poll covered the whole nation and was published in newspaper El Comercio.

The poll showed Fujimori getting 51.1 percent of the vote and Humala with 48.9 percent when blank and null ballots were excluded in a simulation of voting organized by pollsters.

The survey polled 2,005 people May 7-13 and has a 2.2 point margin of error.

But there is still a margin of uncertainty. Fujimori and Humala has not have any television debate yet.

DATUM POLL.-

A new poll made by Datum situates centrist presidential candidate Keiko Fujimori (40.6 percent) ahead of leftist chavist Ollanta Humala (37.9 percent), with a difference of 2.7 points.

A curiosity is that the amount of undecided voters between this poll and the previous made by Datum has increased from 10.4 to 13.5 percent (+3.1%). The amount of blank or invalidated votes remains almost the same, around 8 percent.

Fujimori’s initial strong support  comes mainly from the higher and middle socio-economic classes  with an increase of 2.9 percent from Datums’s previous poll, but now Fujimori is improving also among the poorest in the peruvian sociey. Humala’s support decreased among lower and lowest socio economic classes. Humalas support among the poorest has decreased from 50,5% to 40,7%  (decreased sharply 9.6 percent), compared to Datum’s previous poll.

Ollanta’s is doing well in the countryside and Fujimori in the big cities like Lima.  Fujimori seems to attract near twice as many female voters as Humala, but the ex military officer receives major support from male voters (46.9 percent), than keiko Fujimori (32.3 percent).
