Evo Morales’s popularity is going through the roof. A recent poll conducted by Apoyo Opinion y Mercado is giving him a 79% approval rating. That is 5 points more than the 74% recorded in January by the same pollster.

The newly elected Bolivian President is capitalizing his popularity to move ahead with two projects, a Constituent Assembly and a referendum on the setting up of autonomous regions. An electoral process is scheduled for June 02 mixing the referendum with the selection of assembly members.

Evo knows where he wants to go and is moving quickly. Only when the constitution is rewritten we will know how far to the left Evo's project is.
