Chilean voters intending to reject a new constitution in September’s referendum dropped by five percentage points in a week, according to a poll published with just over a month left before the ballot.

Forty-seven percent of respondents said they will vote against the proposed charter, down from 52% the week prior, according to a Cadem public opinion survey released late Sunday. Thirty-nine percent said they will back the document, up from 37% previously, while 14% said they’re undecided.
