Has Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) become more pragmatic in recent years? Or is the man likely to win Mexico’s upcoming presidential election still the same institution-defying firebrand who set up a “parallel government” and cut off the capital’s main avenue when he lost the 2006 election by a whisker? “I think in some ways he has evolved,” says Denise Dresser, one of Mexico’s most prominent political analysts. “He has learned from his mistake … when his radicalization and confrontational stance led him to lose many moderate supporters.” But to what extent is that true? Does AMLO really understand the nuances of economic policy? And what will his relationship with Donald Trump be like if elected? Dresser and AQ Editor-in-Chief Brian Winter discuss these questions and more in this new podcast.
