A new national survey of Venezuelans conducted by GBAO and Albright Stonebridge Group (ASG) finds Venezuelan society is highly-polarized, and its volatile political climate and dire economic conditions pose multiple challenges for domestic and international actors trying to navigate the situation.
Venezuelans overwhelmingly reject the Maduro regime, and there is strong support for Interim President Juan Guaido. The public favors the departure of Maduro and the holding of new presidential elections. They are divided over the idea of a foreign military intervention to remove him. Venezuelans are more wary of broader economic sanctions, but favor sanctions on regime officials.
