Chávez leaving office: My unscientific poll and Buying votes

Here you have the results for last month's poll: when do you think Chávez is leaving office? There were less respondents (28) this time because I started the poll way too late. I normalized the results and this is what we get:

19.23% think Chávez ceases to be president before 2012. 26.92% think he stops between 2012 and 2014. 15.38% think he will cease to rule as president of Venezuela between 2014 and 2021.
30.77% think he will still be president in 2021. 7.7% have no idea.

OK, let's start again: when do you think Chávez ceases to be president? Please, answer from your bowels: when do you think (not wish) that Venezuela gets a different president?


I just read Chávez will be selling at least 300000 Chinese refrigerators, aircos, washing machines and stuff like that through his "socialist companies". Those companies will buy at 2.6 Bs per dollar instead of 4.3 Bs per dollar as the private sector does...Chávez says he will chock speculators to death like that. There are some boliburgueses who will get a little bit richer, Chávez will buy some more votes and sustainable development will be a little bit further away.
