The majority of Colombians support the re-election of President Álvaro
Uribe in 2010, despite his declining popularity. 54 percent of the
Colombians want Uribe to run for the 2010 presidency.
A poll, conducted for Colombian press agency Colprensa, showed 62 percent want Uribe to be able to be re-elected either in 2010 or 2014.
34 percent of the respondents say they are against any re-election of the current president.
A poll, conducted last week for CM&, shows Uribe’s popularity is suffering from the economic crisis in large parts of Colombia following the shutdown of suspected money launderer DMG and the collapse of pyramid scheme DRFE. His approval rate dropped from 75 percent last month to 66 percent now.
