In the present work we will analyze the recent triumph of Mauricio Macri in Buenos Aires City, who won in all social sectors, extending the limits of the profile of the traditional voter of the right. However, the rightist vote is not reduced to the "hard vote" (class vote), but includes also voters whose class interests are not associated with it, but who accept rightist principles. The success of the right is based on displaying its tenets beyond ideological opposition, neutralizing the classist character of the representative relationship. Thus, the vote for the right may come from the confidence in values linked to the right (order, security, safeguarding of private property, etc.) and, reciprocally, from the rejection of values related, from the rightist horizon, to the left (inefficiency, instability, infringement of the law). We will conclude that perhaps it wasn't a vote from the right, in terms of composition of the electoral base; nevertheless it is unquestionable that it was a vote to the right, based on the party that received the suffrages. For that reason, even if the classist character of the suffrage is extracted, we will confirm that it was indeed a vote structured axiologically from a right dogma.
