Venezuela poll: Chavez's popularity holds steady

A new poll in Venezuela shows that President Hugo Chavez's approval ratings remain in the 50-percent range but that a majority disapprove of the government's performance on key issues such as crime, corruption and the economy.
The survey by the Caracas-based polling firm Datanalisis says Chavez's popularity stood at about 49 percent in late July, similar to his 50 percent rating the previous month.
The poll of 1,300 Venezuelans had a margin of error of 2.7 percentage points.
Chavez has scaled back his televised appearances recently while undergoing cancer treatment. He had a tumor removed from his pelvic region in June, and says chemotherapy aims to prevent any reappearance of cancerous cells.
