In a shocking development, the world notices that Venezuelans resident in Miami are not a representative pool of their fellow nationals
This table shows the results of how the 8,509 Venezuelans resident in the Southeast of the USA (nearly all in Miami) voted in the 2012 Venezuela Presidential election, according to the official Venezuela election body (CNE) figures and this report:
(if you're wondering, the 6 votes were scored by Reina Sequera, an independent candidate)
So well done Capriles, scoring 99% of the Miami vote, which compares quite favourably to the overall Chávez 55.14% / 44.24% win over Capriles with 97.65% of the votes now counted. However, we can fully expect the Northern media channels to continue to faithfully represent the views of the 8,500 Miami expats more than the country. Because that's how democracy works.
