Potential for Chavez' Decline

I think the single best way to turn people away from your revolution is to no longer be able to provide them electricity and water.

Seriously, Hugo Chavez needs to take care of this problem if he wants to stay in power for very long. If 40% of the country already opposes him, you don't think that consistent power outages would knock another 10-20% away and leave him with minority support?

Of course, he could always go full Mugabe and use thugs to stay in power despite destroying the country's infrastructure.
