The Chief of Staff, Juan Manzur, and Aníbal Fernández, in a meeting that they both held at the Ministry of Security.
Almost a month after the electoral defeat suffered by the Government at the national level, the market research company Taquion measured the impact on the people of the appointment of Juan Manzur as Chief of Cabinet and Aníbal Fernández in the Ministry of Security of the Nation. In addition, he analyzed how the economic measures, the vaccination plan and other decisions made by Alberto Fernández to try to reverse the election were perceived. There they found that 7 out of 10 Argentines have “negative feelings” about the announcements in recent weeks and that 68.5% believe that Cristina Kirchner had a “predominant role” in the President’s decisions. They also evaluated the impact of the expansion of capacity, the vaccination plan, the image of the new ministers and the conversations on social networks.
The semi-structured online questionnaire prepared by Taquión was carried out on 2,513 effective cases – over 16 years of age with access to the internet and social networks – with a national scope between September 22 and 27, 2021. It also involved a monitoring of social networks focused on digital conversation derived from information produced by national and regional digital media.
42% of those consulted by Taquion believe that the Cabinet changes have been “thinking about the future of the Argentines”
The report accessed by Infobae maintains that “the shock that the National Government had has already passed, but there are still splinters. In less than a month, there was an electoral defeat at the country level, internal bill passes, changes in the Cabinet and a repositioning to try to speak to different segments of society that today prefer other options ”.
“In this sense, the strongest decision Alberto Fernández made was to change some names in the Cabinet to regain the lost vote. However, 7 out of 10 Argentines had negative feelings to this measure, which several think is a nod to traditional politics, far from the new faces that had a lot of repercussion for society in the legislative STEP ”, they added.
In fact, in the monitoring of social networks, the notion prevailed among users that “Cristina won” and that the leaders chosen for the replacement “are the same as always”. In addition, they observed questions and disbelief in the national political leadership, questioning the figure of Alberto and his relationship with Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, whom they consider makes the decisions. Expressions of fatigue in the face of the events that have occurred. In this sense, they assure that the change of Cabinet does not influence the electoral results of November. Almost 7 out of 10 people position the vice president as the strategist who decided the new direction of the Government, while trying to rearrange the helm.
“Old politics”. 47.3% of those consulted by Taquion do not agree with the incorporation of Juan Manzur
In particular, about the incorporation of Juan Manzur as Chief of Staff, 47.3% do not agree and 51.6% feel the same about the new role of Aníbal Fernández as Minister of Security.

“The demand to see new faces in politics was evident with the electoral results of the PASO. Third forces such as the Liberals in CABA have obtained considerable amounts of votes. Meanwhile, the progressive arc of Kirchnerism wonders if these political figures represent their values and ideals, and reinforce the position on different issues, such as abortion, gender parity and institutional strengthening ”, the study analyzed.
As a result of the electoral loss, the Government not only changed ministers but also implemented economic measures in search of “recovering the purchasing power” of the citizens. However, the respondents are negative towards because they consider them insufficient in relation to other demands that they believe are not met. In this sense, the study identified the main demands that are not met by these new measures:
– Demand for the generation of genuine employment and reduction of social plans.
– The situation of retirees and the low amount they receive.
– Policies to combat the effects of inflation on daily life and, particularly, the impact on the prices of products and services.
In addition, as a transversal axis of criticism of all the mentioned advertisements, “the temporality of the advertisements stands out, questioning the intentionality of the policies and considering them as opportunistic policies after the result of the PASO”, they reported.

Regarding the flexibilisations and new openings, only 37.1 agree with the opening of discos with a capacity of 50% and a complete vaccination scheme. In social networks, 93% of users expressed themselves negatively. 32% express disbelief and rejection, arguing that the ads are the product of having lost the STEP. In this sense, they distrust the measures and assure that after November the restrictions will return.
10% express disagreement in relation to the lifting of the use of the chinstrap on public roads and outdoor spaces, reiterating the need to continue using it since they consider that it is not adequate, until the vaccinated population is found. 9% express dissatisfaction and fear in relation to migratory openings, arguing that in this way the Delta strain and new mutations of the virus can enter the country. Likewise, the claim for the advancement of vaccination is reiterated.
A large percentage of those surveyed believe that Cristina Kirchner influences Alberto Fernández’s decisions
“In the midst of the political discussion, people appear, who seek a direction in their day-to-day life, closer to their relatives and acquaintances, with an increase of 5% in the perception of those who are going through a quiet, harmonious or happy with his family. If today people are only spectators of politics, let them at least find them accompanied “, they expressed in the study
In addition, they considered that “a society that sees how politics continues to speak to itself, like a Narcissus enraptured by his image without prioritizing the demands of the environment. Today the eyes of politics are on the November elections. Meanwhile, the National Government seeks to straighten that rudder by dint of changes showing management and new (old) names, trying to regain the rudder of the demands of society, increasingly distant from that microworld ”.
