President Hugo Chavez looked set to win as Venezuelans prepared for a closely watched vote on Sunday on whether to give the anti-U.S. leader six more years to wage his socialist "revolution."
Most polls show Chavez, at odds with Washington over his ties to Cuba and Iran, with a solid lead over rival Manuel Rosales, a state governor who has attacked the incumbent on crime and unemployment.
Rosales has mustered the opposition's most serious challenge to Chavez in years with populist promises to redistribute Venezuela's oil wealth and roll back policies he says are edging the OPEC country toward Cuban-style communism.
