The results of the new survey, carried out by CID-Gallup, between the 5th and 9th of January 2014 – intended to reflect valid vote among people over 18 years in El Salvador, show FMLN ahead with 49%, followed by ARENA with 37% and UNIDAD with 14%.

The latest poll by CID-Gallup polling house, released this past Monday January 13th, ranks Salvador Sanchez Ceren, (FMLN) in front of the preferences with 49%, followed by Norman Quijano (ARENA), with 37%, while Antonio Saca (UNIDAD) lies in third place with 14%.

The poll indicates that Sanchez Ceren is supported mainly by people with college education, male, living outside the area of San Salvador, and by people who approve president Mauricio Funes.
