This is so Alabama special Senate election

Pinera is doomed

(a little later)

PINERA LANDSLIDE!

Nah, it was more like Guilliar started with the better hand, so people expected him to do better. The moment votes came in from Chile, everyone knew it was over.

It seems Piñera got almost 850K more votes than Piñera+Kast got in the first round.  Some of it are marginal Center-Right voters but a lot of it must be from defections of the Center and Center-Left candidates from the first round.

Didn't knew, that in Chile, the defeated candidate goes to the winning candidate HQ to congratulate him/her. Nice tradition.  Smiley

Would Sanchez have done better?

^ I'd be interested in an answer to this.

Unsure. On one hand, Sanchez would have energized her base a hell of a lot more, and probably would have brought new voters on board as well as the "voice of change", so to speak. On the other hand, there's the question of just how many of the more moderate Guillier voters would have also gone to her or would have found the Frente Amplio too left-wing for their taste (I'm talking particularly about the less ideological voters).

I have a hunch she might have had a decent shot, but I truly can't say.

Easily one of the better parts of our system, candidates can get very harsh on their tone before the election, but they make an effort to cool things down on the very same election night and make gestures like that. Even our own politicians recognize that's a strong point to keep.

Sebastian Piñera becomes the third most voted candidate in Chilean history, only surpassed by Eduardo Frei Ruiz Tagle in 1993 and Patricio Aylwin in 1989. This is all the more impressive because Piñera achieved this result with voluntary vote, and he already has more votes than Bachelet 2013.

Another loss for the left in Latin America. Bodes well for Brazil, which is more conservative than Chile.

Right wing candidates (including the ones who pretend to be) could break 60%.

I know this is very cliche, however it shouldn't be ignored that the fact that the pink tide is regressing definitely played a role here. The failure of Venezuela after Chavez's departure and the state's turn to authoritarianism has provided a spectre that looms across the continent. In this election, and many others that saw the right assume governmental control, the ads warn of their county 'becoming another Venezuela.'

Election map - I highly recommend opening it in a new tab if you want to see all the details. The takeaway I think is the decline of the Left vote in their traditional Northern Strongholds, and the growth of said Left Vote in the Santiago Metro Area.

Idk much about chilean politics but would i be wrong to assume that the reason they switched to Piñera is because of the slowing chinese economy making products like chilean copper not being brought which is leading to economic problems there.
