Venezuela's Moment of Truth

James Menendez for BBC World News:

Hugo Chavez's supporters revere him as a hero. His opponents loathe him with a passion. But it's not the whole story.

Polls suggest there is a growing number of people who don't like either side. A significant chunk of the electorate - perhaps as large as 30% - who're looking for a new face, with fresh ideas about how to get Venezuela back on its feet.

It may be these people who hold the casting votes.
