I won't claim to have a deep understanding of Argentine politics, but what has stood out to me for months are all the Anglo media stories discussing the inevitability of Milei. American reporters do love when far right candidates win everywhere.

I mean, consider the headline of the article about how... the other guy won!
Far-Right Candidate Heads to Runoff in Argentina Election Javier Milei, a far-right libertarian, performed worse than polls predicted and will face Sergio Massa, Argentina’s economy minister, next month.
Poor reporter had stay up late re-doing the whole pre-write, originally the story of Milei's triumphant victory (whole story is still about him).
