LA PAZ Jan 25 (Reuters) - Bolivia's new leftist constitution was approved on Sunday with the support of 55 percent of voters, according to a quick count for ATB television that earlier had said the result was too close to call.

The pollster conducting the quick count said he was projecting a win based on a tally of 80 percent of his sample. Two other broadcasters said their exit polls showed an even wider win for the constitution. (Reporting by Terry Wade; Editing by Fiona Ortiz)
