Argentine president to win re-election, exit poll says

BUENOS AIRES - Argentine President Cristina Fernandez swept to a landslide re-election on Sunday, winning about 55 percent of the vote with a huge lead over her nearest rival, an exit poll showed.
If the result is confirmed, the center-leftist will win a second four-year term with a strong mandate to deepen interventionist economic policies hated by big business but popular with many Argentines.
The government-funded exit poll put Socialist provincial governor Hermes Binner a distant second with around 14 percent, local media said, declaring Fernandez the victor. The results of the poll were in line with numbers published earlier by Reuters.
