"[...] One such poll, by Cedatos-Gallup and released Friday for clients of
the investment bank Credit Suisse, showed that among those who plan to cast
a vote for one of the candidates, Mr. Correa had the support of 52 percent
against 48 percent for Mr. Noboa. The poll has a margin of error of three
percentage points, essentially putting the candidates in a statistical tie.
Though polls are often unreliable in Ecuador, the results put financial
markets on edge with investors selling off Ecuadorean bonds in New York on
Friday."
