Chavez´s candidate trails in Perú poll

Ollanta Humala ,financed by Hugo Chávez who lost the last presidential election in Peru by only 5% now polls at 13% with 70% negatives and only 19% of positives.The election is almost 2 years away, Since his wife was discovered receiving large sums of money from Venezuela, his figures have gone south.Keiko Fujimori,the daughter of the jailed ex-president leads with 23% with centrist Lima mayor Luis Castañeda at 18% in second place. Castañeda may form a center-right coaltion with conservative leader Lourdes Flores(11%) and ex president Alejandro Toledo(10%).All three are Chávez enemies.
