Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has won a fourth term in office after defeating opposition leader Henrique Capriles, electoral officials say.
Mr Chavez won 54% of the vote, the country's electoral council announced.

Turnout was 80% in the hotly contested election and voting was extended beyond the official closing time at some polling stations with long queues.

Color me surprised!
Moochelle is on the phone right now asking him to explain to her how he got the fix in.
I assume he got 115% of the zombie vote.
I feel badly for Venezuela... but they did have a free country once, before they willingly turned it over to this bloated demon in the name of “fairness” and “change”.
I’m just glad we’re smart enough to not make the same kind of mistakes here.
More takers than makers in that country... we are heading that direction now...hopefully, our ship will right itself before that happens.
Some comments are so clear they do not need the /s
Usa: vanilla thrilla rumbles with the mulatto castrato...!
The Venezuelan vote is probably just as accurate as the employment numbers from our own BLS.
Exit polling showed the challenger winning by 3%
Then they shut the exit polling down, put troops and soldiers into the street.
Then announced that Huge-o won by 10%.
I feel for the majority in Venezuela. May that bastard’s cancer come back and relegate him to a short chapter in the history books.
There, title of the article fixed... Is anyone surprised? Thought not. God knows the truth, Chavez will rot in He'll for what he has done to the country and people of Venezuela.
Pat Robertson was right concerning what should have been done with this communist monster.
What happens when the people the Founders warned against getting the franchise get the franchise
Are you being sarcastic on that last part???
Is 0bama going to STEAL our election too?
Needless to say, sh*t happens.
Venezuela will continue to go downhill with Chavez alive or quite possibly dead in the coming months and years.
Another sad story like Zimbabwe.
NFW so many people are this stupid.
Gives you pause what our publik schools are turning out.
They already do. U.S. Investigates Voting Machines Venezuela Ties
Old Story, but still the same story.
I believe it was Mao who said that, wasn't it? It doesn't matter how people vote, it only matters as to who counts the votes.
SEIU and ACORN will be the ones counting the votes for sure. No wonder Obama could care less about these debates, he knows he has his buddies rigging the machines
