After the trilateral leaders' summit in Toluca, Mexico, on Feb. 19, attention in North America focused once again on the impressive advances that have occurred during the first 15 months of the Enrique Pena Nieto government.Within Mexico, however, the president has suffered from low and declining approval ratings and is currently polling less than 50 percent in national opinion polls. His success in moving Mexico's legislation has counted for little in the eyes of the general population as a result of disappointing economic growth, a continuing public security crisis due to organized and other crime, and general skepticism about the government's commitment to implement the legislative changes already approved by the Congress.That said, recent events may lead the public to re-evaluate the president and his government. Many challenges remain for Pena Nieto and his government.
