As the situation in Venezuela worsens, only 65% of Brazilian admit to knowing the current state of the neighboring country.
Among them, 54% are against any military participation of Brazil in the attempt to overthrow the dictatorship of Nicolás Maduro.
In speeches by the American and Brazilian governments, the leaders have suggested that foreign intervention is one of the “options that are on the table.” But no governments in Latin America, Europe or even the US are openly defending military intervention.
Even the opposition leader, Juan Guaidó, has suggested foreign intervention. He presides over the National Assembly, the only government organ considered legitimately elected in Venezuela by the international community.
Among older people, the rejection of military intervention rises to 62%. The support is higher among young people at 53%.
