Fresh Survey Numbers from Venezuela
A survey by PS&B Associates gives Hugo Chavez a vote intention of 50% against 37% for main contender Manuel Rosales.
However, similar research conducted by local firms IVAD and Datanalisis give Chavez a vote intention of 76.9 and 58.2% respectively.
Distance between Chavez and his contender is reducing but not to the level needed by Rosales. Elections are scheduled for December.
