Chavez tanks

Hugo Chavez’s popularity is down to 36%, in part due an astonishingly high murder rate. Caracas’s murder rate of 233 per 100k is more than twice last year’s rate, and exceeds Mexico’s Ciudad Juárez and every war zone in the world.

The question is whether 36% is low enough to keep him from being “re-elected”.  I wouldn’t count on it.
