    Media: NYT ignores low Venezuela referendum turnout, calls results "staggering"

    Voter turnout for Venezuelan presidential elections has been running at 80%.  The turnout in this anti-Maduro referendum was less than half that.  To put it another way, more people voted for Maduro’s opponent in 2013 than voted in this referendum.

    To focus on the 98% yes rate and call it “staggering” is stupid.  Obviously Maduro’s supporters boycotted.
