Venezuela

What percent of the Venezuelan population actually supports Maduro?

What percent of the Venezuelan population is actually prospering under the current circumstances?

Is the portrayal in the mainstream media that essentially Maduro is a corrupt despot and the country is on the verge of starvation accurate? If things are as bad as they claim, why is the political uprising death count so small?

What are the actual long term solutions for Venezuela?

Also, it seems like Latin American countries don't like each other very much.

The Economist:
Quote:
In a poll conducted at the end of 2017, half of 18- to 29-year-olds and 55% of the middle class said they wanted to leave the country. Of those who hoped to flee, two-thirds gave the state of the economy as their reason.

Venezuelans are acting on this wish in ever greater numbers, yielding what may well be the largest forced displacement of people in Latin American history. The UN’s International Organisation for Migration estimates that at the end of 2017 approximately 1.6m Venezuelans were living outside their country. Today that number is likely to be far higher: as of June 2018 there were nearly 1m Venezuelan migrants in Colombia alone. The UNHCR, the UN’s refugee agency, has recorded 135,000 asylum applications from Venezuelans during the first seven months of 2018, already 20% more than for the whole of 2017. The total number of displaced Venezuelans may already have reached 4m, out of a population of some 30m. The outflow could eventually surpass the 6m people who have fled the Syrian civil war.
