What Venezuelans think

June 28, 2003

In a nationwide poll by Datos published today in El Nacional (A-5) 75% of those polled consider themselves to be in the opposition, while only 25% support him. What I found most interesting though is that 48% of those polled believe Chavez’ revolution is a dictatorship, 70% think it is violent, 66% think there is more corruption with Chavez and 68% consider that poverty has increased and the quality of life has decreased during Chavez’ Government. Finally, when asked whether things are going well or very well, not so well (“regular” in Spanish) or badly, only 6% said well or very well, 28% not so well and 66% badly. Not a pretty picture.
