Javier Milei, candidate of La Libertad Avanza, leads the ranking of phrases with a negative impact in the recent presidential debate, according to a study by UBA.
Negative effect of Milei’s words
UBA’s Pulsar observatory made real-time measurements during the presidential debate in which five candidates participated. In this context, the words of Javier Milei created a great rejection of the voters. The phrase that caused the most outrage was his statement about climate change: “I’m not denying climate change. What I’m saying is that there has been a temperature cycle in the history of the earth.”
Bullrich on the podium
Patricia Bullrich, candidate for Together for Change, was also placed on the podium in phrases with high rejection. His statement, “As Minister of Security, you know that I protect you and take you to my heart,” recalling his management of the Cabinet of Mauricio Macri, created discontent among voters.
Milei and his position on climate change
Javier Milei again drew the attention of voters with another phrase about climate change: “First, we do not follow the 2030 agenda, we do not follow cultural Marxism, we do not follow the decay.” These words reaffirmed his position and created a division among the audience.
A debate marked by confrontation
The debate, which took place at the UBA Law School, was marked by high levels of confrontation and accusations between the candidates. Each political space is trying to take advantage of this last chance for a joint presentation before the elections on October 22.
Suggestions and replicas
Unlike previous debates, this time the candidates are less tied to a script and more willing to face each other. Chicanas and questioning are used as part of each candidate’s strategy. Sergio Massa (Unión por la Patria) stood up by preparing answers for questions that sought to put him in trouble, which was considered positive by his campaign team.
Changing landscape and public reactions
The change of scenery from the Forum convention center in Santiago del Estero to the traditional UBA facilities will also have an impact on the public. This is revealed with laughter and surprise at the answers and chicanery of the candidates. The moment of the greatest confrontation involved Myriam Bregman, Javier Milei and Sergio Massa in the block of ‘Work and Production’, where Milei contradicted Bregman saying: “If the socialists knew about the economy, they are not socialists.”
The presidential debate was a scene of confrontation and confrontation between the candidates, where Milei’s words about climate change and other phrases created a divided reaction among voters.
