Rhe only equation that counts is not NAFTA; you are asking the wrong question.
The answer to the right question is...yes, If AMLO wins, Mexico beats Brazil on Monday and advances !


I have no idea what any of that means.


It means if the populist wins it will fortify the national soccer team and Mexico will advance to the quarterfinals.


Aaah, bread and circuses? Although some, (particularly in the U.S.) fear there won't be much bread...or tortillas....if AMLO wins. Or, put another way:
"AMLO WINS, MEXICO LOSES?"


He is often not very mistakenly likened to a "leftist" version of The Chump, though I disagree with the leftist distinction. I'm a pretty fair leftist and I haven't heard hardly anything that I agree with come out of his mouth. His actions speak louder than his words. He is intolerant, anti-democratic and anti-institutions except when things go his way. I predict a great wave of disappointment will grip his followers during the next 6 years if he wins. And unfortunately he will play The Chump's game and the two will likely soon be trading childish insults. Oh boy. Can't hardly wait. :-o

Normally, if the U.S. opposed an AMLO presidency, that'd be enough for me to support him as "the enemy of my enemy....." But the intelligent U.S. media, (New York Times, Washington Post, etc.) have reservations. Some have suggested AMLO is Mexico's Bernie Sanders. If accurate, I'd say VIVA AMLO!
