Bolivia Turns Left

With Evo Morales leading the presidential race, Bolivia is about to make a left turn, and a radical one.

Even though Morales only has a 6% lead, he is gaining momentum and the vote could happen as early as December the fourth. Congress in maneuvering to change the election date but this may only boost Morales’s prospects.
