Colombia: President Santos remains steady at 50% approval



Pollster Gallup Colombia doesn't take a regular as clockwork snapshot of Presidential approval, but it does enough surveys to give us a trend. When it comes to President Juanma, he suffered loss of approval through 2011 and 2012 (which isn't a shock for a midterm presidency) but 2013 has seen he approval rating maintain a steady 50% which was confirmed by the latest poll for June 2013, out last night. It's not the type of number that Uribe used to poll all the time but it is enough for a strong re-election platform. The ongoing peace talks with the FARC, which are making slow but significant progress, remain the top agenda item.
