Really? you are surprised? there are only 100K Venezuelans registered to vote from here the USA, and they compose 70% of those who live outside Venezuela. Moreover, add ignorance, necessity, corruption, lack of organization, division, lack of courage and many more elementary factors that rein that country, you are gonna get the same results all the time. Without education, union, political intervention from international support from all parts of the world including ex-pats and a focal collective ideal, Chaves will die in office. Chavez is not the problem, the people are !!! and change needs to come within not out.
