Wife of deposed Honduran leader leads presidential race - poll

Just 23 percent said they would vote for National Party candidate Juan Hernandez who, the pollster said, "is being affected by the ongoing divisions in his party."

Nonetheless, 33 percent of the 1,256 people surveyed for the poll said they supported Hernandez's National Party, while only 21 percent opted for the Liberty and Refoundation Party (LIBRE), with a similar amount picking the third-placed Liberal Party.

The poll has a 2-percentage-point margin of error, according to La Prensa newspaper that published the survey.

Castro and her party, a coalition of leftist politicians, unions, agrarian and indigenous groups, vow to call a referendum to rewrite the constitution if they win - an act that previously set in motion the coup that ended her husband's presidency.
