This work focuses on the creative imagery and citizen evaluation of the presidential campaign and the subsequent government of Salvador Allende. In order to do this, two sources are considered: on the one hand, political cartoons published during those years and, on the other hand, the public opinion surveys carried out at the time by Eduardo Hamuy. In this way, some of the cartoons that captured the opinion of supporters and opponents of Allende are reviewed and contrasted with the opinion that was assesed with those surveys. In addition to the historical perspective, both types of sources are evaluated considering the theoretically proposed social functions of political humor at the psycho-sociological level. Considering that the nature of this exercise can produce biases and certainly implies limitations, it is concluded that the political cartoon was able to capture the majority social sentiment.
