P.S. You can also pick up colloquialisms like “huachicoleros” (gasoline bootleggers) and “chayoteros”, prominent/influential journalists who have been paid significant amounts of money by politicians for favourable press coverage.
AMLO’s way of speaking is not the normal way for anyone. He can speak about one word per hour. If anyone tries to learn from him, you might even loose some IQ in the process

Just read your comment again. One observation; there is no way on Earth 1, that 70% of Mexicans agree with Andrés Manuel “Politics” perhaps that came from the numbers he makes up.
PS I’m not affiliated with any political party, they all suck

Actually various polls show he has about 70% approval ratings give or take. Those aren’t his numbers, they’re from various independent polls. Here are a few links. Of course the exact numbers vary based on when the poll was done and who’s doing the poll, but overall he has a high rate of approval from the Mexicans polled.
