38% of Bolivians Support Chavez’s Intervention

A recent survey by Apoyo, Opinión y Mercado states that 51% of Bolivians consider that Chavez “intervenes” on national affaires. 48% rejects Chavez’s intervention whereas 38% supports it.

I would think that 38% is an unusually large figure for any foreign politician meddling in national affairs anywhere in the world.

Do you have comparable data from other countries?

Not really but still 38% is more than a third. Look at it from this perspective, whoever wins in Mexico will make it with less than 38%, so it is a number high enough to get you into a national presidency.

Bolivia is having a leadership crisis so big that they L O V E Evo Morales and like a foreign populist like Chavez.

And almost half of Bolivians do not like his intervention....I think that is fairly significant.

It is indeed the most logical way of reading it. Most Bolivians unwelcome Chavez. However it susprises me that he can be also be welcomed by a large portion of the population. I think Erasmo defined it well, it is Bolivia's leadership crises.
