Who believes in conspiracy theories according to IVAD?

A new poll by IVAD (Instituto Venezolano de Análisis de Datos), published by Eugenio G. Martínez (@puzkas), asked relevant questions about some of the conspiracy theories held by the Venezuelan government.

The government claims that the deaths during the opposition street protests at the beginning of the year are the responsibility of the opposition leaders who called the protests. IVAD asked:

Frase con la que está más de acuerdo:

“Las muertes ocurridas durante las protestas de los últimos meses son responsabilidad de los líderes como Leopoldo López y María Corina Machado que la convocaron”: 29.4%

“Las muertes ocurridas durante las protestas de los últimos meses son responsabilidad de los grupos irregulares armados y las fuerzas policiales y militares que reprimieron a los manifestantes”: 57.0%

No response: 13.6%

Only 29.4% of respondents answered that opposition leaders, “such as Leopoldo López and Maria Corina Machado” were responsible for the deaths. But more than half (57%) believe that “irregular groups”, the police, and the military, are responsible for the deaths.

On the claims made by the government that the opposition is planning to assassinate President Maduro (Magnicidio), IVAD asked to respond true or false to these statements:

La Oposición está planificando un magnicidio para asesinar al Presidente Maduro:
True 19.9%. False 62.0%. No response 18.1%

Las denuncias de magnicidio hechas por el Gobierno son una mentira para tapar los problemas del país:

True 64.4%. False 24.5%. No responde 11.1%
