Mexicans can't decide either on Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama

Not that they have a vote, but America's unfolding national election, especially the strenuous struggle between the two Democrats, is attracting mucho attention south of the border.

Our colleagues over at the La Plaza Latin America blog have an interesting item on a newspaper poll down south that shows Mexicans are also about evenly split between Senora Hillary Clinton and Senor Barack Obama.

About 31% favor each of them. Senor Juan McCain does not get many votes, only 7%, despite his politically costly support for immigration reform last spring.

You can read the full item here.
