By Alexandra Ulmer CARACAS (Reuters) - Just over one in four Venezuelans approves of President Nicolas Maduro's governance as a crippling economic crisis weighs on the leftist leader, according to a leading pollster. Venezuelans are suffering rampant shortages of products including bread and antibiotics, salary-destroying inflation, and increasingly frequent power and water cuts as the OPEC country's state-led model flounders. Maduro, whom the opposition is vying to remove from office this year, saw his rating drop to 26.8 percent in March from 33.1 percent in February, according to a Datanalisis poll seen by Reuters.
