Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto’s standing in the polls has sunk to record lows, and a new plagiarism scandal isn’t helping. So maybe meeting with a guy even less popular than he is could bring the Mexican public back to his side?
That’s one theory being considered Wednesday as Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump — a man who once called America’s third-largest trading partner an “enemy” — prepares to visit Mexico City later in the day. Trump’s approval rating in Mexico, according to a June poll, was 2 percent. Peña Nieto is hovering around 23 percent.
