For those of you suffering from insomnia here is the latest polling data from Venezuela:

According to this poll by opposition pollster Datanalisis those saying they would vote for Chavez has gone up from 55% in July to 58.2% in August after the opposition settled on a unified candidate.

And what did settling on a unified candidate accomplish? Simple, the people who would have previously voted for Borges or Petkoff (next to no-one) will now vote for Rosales so that he gets a whopping 17.4% support. No wonder Chavez promptly hopped on a plane and headed for an international conference in Cuba - no need to campaign, that's for sure.

Oh yeah, and the clown? He is polling at 1.4%. At this rate he'll be lucky if Venevision doesn't pull all his shows.

Finally, there are still 22.7% of Venezuelans who say they are undecided as to who they will vote for. Problem is for the opposition, even if every single one of them votes against Chavez the opposition will still get its butt kicked as badly as it did during the Recall Referendum, 58% to 42%. Yikes.

At this point the polls are all a big yawn. Unless there is some sort of dramatic shift I'm done posting on them.
