I was afraid on a huge abstention, and I feared on the well known abilities of left to mobilize their people, specially against Piñera, who they envision as the devil incarnated. Many weird things happened yesterday. Where it was the people for "No más AFFP", supposedly they was millions all over the country, same as supporters of "Educación gratis y de calidad para todos", Piñera is on the antipodes. Why so many people wake up early in Sunday and voted mostly for Piñera in a soccer day?
Many things intriguing, and pleasurable surprises to me. Maybe don Diego Portales and his "Peso de la noche" is working, at last.As I see now Piñera was elected for president last nigth, now he has no contenders.
Pinera needs to be careful now.
1. Shutup. Let your dog do all the talking.
2. Watch out for the pinera supporters that think he has it in the bag because of yesterday, then dont bother showing up to vote. It is why you never hear canidates declare 'we are going to win' before the votes are counted. People dont bother to vote, if think you already won.
