Standard disclaimers apply: like all polls, this is a snapshot of public opinion at the time the question was asked, not a crystal-ball/clairvoyant prediction about what will happen in October. Still, they asked the question, and that’s how people answered.
I’ve yet to hear a really convincing explanation for why Venezuela’s two best pollsters get such wildly different numbers of undecideds.
One thing I know is that the numbers Datanalisis has been throwing around stem from their quarterly omnibus survey, a loooooong survey with questions from many different clients on many different products, issues and ideas.
Somehow, somewhere, the length of the Datanalisis survey itself could be driving Capriles-leaners to refuse to answer the question. But I’m distinctly hazy on the specifics of why that may be.

We’ve been able to hang on for 19 years in one of the craziest media landscapes in the world. Now, the difficulty level was raised abruptly with the global pandemic. We’ve seen different media outlets in Venezuela (and abroad) cutting personnel to avoid closing shop. This is something we’re looking to avoid at all costs, and it seems we will. But your collaboration goes a long way in helping us weather the storm.Donate
