Chavez Vote Intention Hits 57%

A recent survey by Venezuelan polling firm Keller y Asociados gives Hugo Chavez a Vote Intention of 57% and a popularity level of 63%. Here go the numbers:

If election day was Sunday, who would you vote for:
-Hugo Chavez: 57% (+8% variation from June)
-Opposition: 35% (-6% variation from June)
-Undecided: 8% (-2% variation from June)

Do you like President Chavez?
-I like him: 63% (+2% variation from June)
-I don’t like him: 24% (-4 variation from June)
-Not sure: 13% (+2 variation from June)

Presidential elections are scheduled for December. The lack of opposition leadership and the solid positioning Chavez is enjoying makes him virtually invincible.

When the oposition gets a candidate things will change. Read the full survey. Approval of specific Chavez initiatives is low.

After reading a recent National Geographic article on Venezuela (April 2006), I have the impression that even people who directly benefit from the money Chavez is throwing around don't like him.

They do, however, like his programs and initiatives. For this, and a fear of mentioning they do not like him, they call themselves Chavistas (supporters).

Camilo, your numbers don't add up again. 57 + 37 + 8 = 102

The poll you're referring to, which was actually taken in February, had Chavez ahead 57 to 35 (not 57 to 37).

The other poll that you mention is both more recent (April) and even more favorable to Chavez.

Thank you Justin. Corrected the typo acordingly. The Keller survey I refered to was June's. I haven't seen April's. Do you have it?
(Posted the link to June's survey).
