Just spoke to my Frente source on the phone and indeed looks like Funes is winning. He was confident enough in that assertion to agree to let me buy him a victory round (or two) tomorrow.   

A few months back he was really worried that rumblings within the FMLN from the hard core cadre who fought in the civil war and were displeased with Funes' public rejection of socialism would lead to an outright mass abstention on election day. 

Fortunately there was enough internal politicking to prevent that from happening. Funes should be prepared, however, to be pushed to the left.
