Centro Economico de Cibao poll shows Danilo with 43% popularity

President Danilo Medina is banned by the 2015 Constitution from running for re-election. What the Constitution says has traditionally not been an impediment for a President to seek re-election. The Constitution disqualified former President Hipólito Mejía from running for re-election in 2004 and President Danilo Medina from running in 2016, and both pushed forward constitutional changes in order to run for re-election. This time around, the Medina faction is majority in Congress, making it easier to propose the changes to accommodate re-election.

Meanwhile, despite the fact that presidential elections are not scheduled until 2020, polls are focusing on who are the most popular pre-candidates, including President Medina.

The Centro Económico de Cibao (CEC) poll reported voter preferences of possible 2020 candidates. The poll included President Danilo Medina supposing he would seek a third term that would require a change to the 2015 Constitution. The poll only included eligible voters in the National District, seat of the capital city of the Dominican Republic.

The results of the CEC poll are: Danilo Medina 43.2%, Leonel Fernández 17.5%, neither 32.5%. Among PLD followers, the vote is Medina 56.9%, Fernández 26.7%, neither 9.2%.

CEC reveals that National District voters are happy with Mayor David Collado. He received an approval rating of 74.4% for his municipal management. Those polled cited improved government services, such as garbage collection and the construction of public works under Mayor Collado.
