FILE – In this Friday, May 8, 2015, file photo, Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro is on his arrival at Vnukovo airport in Moscow. Whether it’s from corruption scandal or stagnant growth, the prospects for the crop of leftist Latin American presidents that have been running the region since the start of the millennium appear to be dimming. No leader has been harder hit than Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, who’s approval ratings have tumbled amid the crisis to 28 percent, near the lowest in 16 years of socialist rule, and while there’s no sign the sometimes violent street protests that overwhelmed the country a year ago will return anytime soon, polls indicate that the opposition will coast to victory in legislative elections expected to take place by year end.
