Mexico Drug War: New nadir in Mexican drugs war puts PAN in trouble

Reuters: "Hopes that Mexico's conservative ruling party would usher in an era of clean government and establish order have given away to despair as drugs war violence increasingly hits ordinary civilians..

.. Mexican voters, who elect a new president in July 2012, are growing tired of government assurances that it is winning the war as new milestones in violence are reached. ... A recent opinion survey showed the PAN's (President Calderon's party) level of support at less than 20 percent, roughly half that of the PRI (which controlled Mexico for seventy years). Calderon is barred by law from seeking re-election but his government's record on security campaign will be a key election issue."
