CARACAS -- Venezuela President Nicolas Maduroís approval rating fell to 24.3% in July from 25.8% in May, according to a Datanalisis poll.
This is the second consecutive drop in the presidentís approval rating, falling from a year-high of 28.2% in March.
Additionally, the poll indicated that the opposition would receive 42.2% of votes versus 19.2% for Chavismo in Decemberís legislative elections.
Venezuela will hold parliamentary elections for all 165 seats in its unicameral National Assembly on December 6.
Analysts note that, due to gerrymandering, total vote percentages do not necessarily translate into the same percentage of seats in parliament.
Venezuela is beset with record problems, including one of the world's highest murder rates and one of the world's highest inflation rates, as well as a rapidly falling currency and shortages of food and other consumer staples.
