At this time, he looks unbeatable. Capriles is way behind. "There is little evidence to support the claims by the opposition that 'undecided voters' could still determine the situation."
Capriles' spin about polls shifting his way doesn't wash. According to VSC:
"Comparing those pollsters that undertook polls published in both July and August, there is no uniform pattern of the lead narrowing."
"More importantly, even where there has been a slight narrowing - which on average was by just 1% - this is insignificant given Hugo Cha'vez's huge lead."- Advertisement -
VSC's Lee Brown added:
"Hugo Cha'vez clearly has a convincing lead according to the overwhelming majority of pollsters."
"The evidence from looking at the full range of polls, rather than cherry picking, does not back up the claims of the campaign of Henrique Capriles Radonski that the race is close or that Capriles is ahead."- Advertisement -
"Nor is there any evidence that Capriles is making any real inroads into Cha'vez's lead as they've also claimed."
"Hopefully these statements from the right-wing opposition are just the kind of things that get said in the cut and thrust of a campaign."
