    Can anybody tell me why Ramfis doesn't appear in any of the Presidential polls that have been published? Has he officially declared?

    I can tell you that almost every Dominican we know or are related to in the USA says they're going to vote for Ramfis. Except our shipping/mundanza guy. He's still a Hipolito guy.

    Because He win in all, and still they are talking about if he has the rights to be a candidate for Presidential elections.

    I thought that was settled. Didn't they say that at least one former Dominican president [Leonel? Hipolito? I can't remember] was also a dual Dominican-USA citizen?

    No, they are still talking about it, Ramfis said he will talk about it when the moment comes. The one you mean is Leonel Fernandez but nothing proof yet about it.

    Ramfis mostly appears in open polls, not closed ones.

    In case anyone doesn´t know the difference, an open poll consist of a question but the answer depends completely on the participant. A closed poll, which are the ones on DR1, consist of a question and gives a limited number of answers for the participant to choose from.

    If he is allowed to run, and something like another financial crisis occurs, Ramfis could win. Early poll numbers mean nothing. Without some kind of crisis, I doubt nostalgia for El Jefe (such as it is) would be enough to propel him into office.

    I don't think it will be any nostalgia for his grandfather that will get him elected. Dominicans are tired of the same "old guard" politicians and want change - something new. Ramfis is a "fresh face". He's got a certain charisma that the old guard doesn't have. They're afraid of him because they know he can win.
