Chavez Expected to Win in Venezuela Elections

Venezuelans hit the polls Sunday for the country's presidential elections.

President Hugo Chavez, a political foe of the United States, who has called President Bush a devil, is expected to win easily over his opponent, Manuel Rosales.

Even with the anticipated victory, fears of protest have prompted the government to deploy more than 125,000 soldiers across the country to keep violence to a minimum.
