The Argentines will elect Messi as president after the World Cup victory

In a poll conducted after the Albiceleste victory at the World Cup, 44% of voters said they were ready to vote for Lionel Messi as president of the Argentine nation.

Would you vote for Lionel Messi as president of Argentina? This is the question posed to Internet users in a survey conducted by Giacobbe Consultores, a public opinion research firm. The survey was conducted among 2,500 Internet users and was conducted in the two days following Argentina’s victory at the World Cup. This probably explains why almost 44% of respondents answered “Yes” to the hypothesis of giving a presidential mandate to Messi.

About 38% answered “No” to the question, 17.5% answered “maybe”. However, these figures (2% margin of error) should be interpreted with caution, as the study’s methodology has not been publicly detailed.

Another question relating to a possible political career at number 10 in the Albiceleste was put to voters. A panel of ten candidates, including the footballer, were presented to them and then asked who they would be willing to vote for. Lionel Messi leads with 37% ahead of far-right MP Javier Milei (12%) and former president and current vice president Cristina Kirchner (11%).

In any case, this publication reminds us of the importance of football in Argentine society. During the celebrations, no less than five million people took to the streets of Buenos Aires to welcome the world champions. And since the coronation, a trend is pushing supporters to tattoo the image that has become symbolic of Lionel Messi kissing the World Cup trophy.
