But for other voters, the most Country Email List important "cleavage" was " came in fourth place in the first round, with 15% of the total valid votes3. The label «correísta» (or «anti-correísta») was precisely a useful abbreviation that was not fully defined, but that Country Email List captured what those voters could identify and against which they could take a position. The hypothesis that we proposed with respect to these voters, for example, was that the Country Email List majority of them were going to be located on the anti-correísta side of the division and vote mostly for Lasso in the second round.
A post-election analysis shows that this is Country Email List what actually happened4. Returning to the voters of Yaku Pérez, we said that the most important cleavage that simplified the decision for them was that of «left/right». As a consequence, faced Country Email List with the choice between Correismo and a conservative right-wing banker, the reasonable expectation was that the majority of voters who had previously cast their vote for Yaku Pérez Country Email List would bite the bullet in the second round and elect Arauz.
Put more appropriately, the most viable Country Email List options for them were to annul the vote (precisely what Pachakutik was promoting as a sign of rejection of the electoral system as a whole) or to vote for Arauz, without forgetting the tensions Country Email List between Correismo and the rest of the left. This being the case, it was sensible to think that the votes that went to Hervas would go, in majority, to Lasso. And it was reasonable to assume that Country Email List most of the votes that went to Yaku Pérez would be split between Arauz and the null vote, with only a few going to Lasso.
