According to Delgado, “the study that ended on September 20, classic vote intention gave us 49.7% in favour of Hugo Chavez and 47.7% for Henrique Capriles, leaving a 2.6% of undecided voters.”

Regarding the vote abstention, the analysis of Varianzas revealed that 75% of the population has intentions of voting, while 23 to 25% are inclined not to vote.

Finally, the director of the pollster, added that “43% of the electorate would never vote for Capriles while the 42% will not vote for Chavez. This numbers are alike, so the elections will be very tight.”
