Actually, just to put things in perspective: though opposition won only in 5 states and the capital district, against 17 states for the chavistas over 55% of Venezuelans (more than 15.5 million of them) will now live under opposition governors.  Chavistas won in the jungle, opposition took the cities.

Here are the 5 largest Venezuelan states by population:

Capital District (Caracas): 5.249 mln. residents - opposition gain
Zulia (Maracaibo) - 3.620 mln. residents - opposition hold
Miranda: 2.828 mln. residents - oppozition gain
Carabobo 2.227 mln. residents - oppozition gain
Lara 1.795 mln. residents - chavista hod

I now will search the state capitals.

Actually, confusingly, most of Caracas is located in Miranda state.  Only the central Libertador municipality of 2 million people is located in the capital district.  And the Chavistas won the municipal government there, so I'm not sure whether to count it under its own Chavista government or the Caracas opposition government.
