CDMX.- If Samuel García seeks to convince voters that he is the best opposition bet for the 2024 elections, he must first remove the stigma of being a scab of the president Andrés Manuel López Obrador, warns Carlos Loret de Mola.
If this mark is not shaken, the journalist adds today in his column “Reporter Stories,” It has no future.

“Samuel’s big problem is that he enters the ring with the stigma of being the worker’s scab, the palero who is going to help Claudia Sheinbaum against Xóchitl Gálvez”says the editorialist.
The governor of Nuevo León, who registered this Sunday as a presidential candidate for Movimiento Ciudadano, starts in the polls well below Claudia Sheinbaum and Xochitl Galvez, the two main candidates for the presidential chair of the ruling party and the opposition, respectively.
In an interview yesterday with journalist Ciro Gómez Leyva, García asked Mexicans to give him a chance and I assure you that in December it would reach between 15 and 20 points in the polls.
SAMUEL, A DAMNIFIED BY POLARIZATION
Loret de Mola qualifies the governor of Nuevo León as “the first victim of polarization” because in that scenario it will be difficult to convince the electorate.
“If someone sympathizes with AMLO, why would they stop voting for Claudia to vote for Samuel? If someone makes it a priority for Morena to leave power, why would they take away their vote from Xóchitl to give it to someone who appears in the polls with an almost nominal range of between 3 and 8 percent?the journalist questions in his article.
In this context, for Loret de Mola the first challenge of the emecista will be to disassociate himself from the scab image of López Obrador, who has been “the main promoter of Samuel’s aspirations.”
It doesn’t help the Nuevo León native that “he has dedicated more time and energy to hitting the PAN-PRI-PRD alliance than to Morena.”
THE POINTS IN FAVOR OF GOVERNING PHOSPHO-PHOSPHO
The journalist Carlos Loret de Mola also highlights four characteristics of Samuel García that can help him attract the vote.
The first of them is that “starting all the way back does not represent a defeatist scenario for the singular royal leader”.
The comment is made in reference to the fact that This is how it began when the position of governor was disputed with Clara Luz Floresfrom Morena, who started the campaign as the leader, but in the end García won.

The second characteristic in favor, according to the editorialist, is that While Sheinbaum and Gálvez “fight to see who is more indigenous,” he opts to “look like a gringo businessman.” and awaken the northern feeling.
Another point for Samuel is his youth and the “mastery” with which he and his wife Mariana Rodríguez manage social networkswhich are consumed by the young public.
The fourth and last characteristic of the emecista, according to Loret de Mola, is that As the only male candidate, he attracted “the very broad sexist sectors.”
“In a country where people continue to wonder if Mexico is ready for a female president (outrageous, but true), The emecista fits the stereotype of the tough northerner who scolds his wife for showing her legs.”, points out in his column.
