Polls Indicate Support for Maduro Plummeting, But Opposition Fractured
A DatinCorp survey suggests that 69 per cent of Venezuelans would vote to oust Maduro in a recall referendum. However, when asked which public figure “inspires the most confidence to lead the nation,” 22 percent named Leopoldo López, the former presidential candidate who has been in jail since 2014. Not far behind, however, was Maduro with 17 percent and then Henrique Capriles, opposition governor of Miranda state, with 14 percent.
According to a Venebarometro survey of 1,200 households, 68 percent believe Maduro should step down immediately. Another 23 percent think he should stay “but change the economic model,” and 4 percent said “the military should take care of it.”
