The survey, carried out from September 15th to October 3rd throughout the country, indicated that when the population was asked whether the National Government should change the socialist economic model to a capitalist one, 75 percent of those surveyed said that the socialist model should be more productive and efficient, while 31 percent said it should be changed.
On the other hand, 60 percent expressed their support for the economy controlled by the State and not the private sector, while 36 percent said they were against it.
During the Sunday program, Oscar Schemel, president of the pollster Hinterlaces, said that the defeat of the opposition in the regional elections was a punishment of the population to the violent strategy staged by the opposition.
