Running Off

Colombia’s President Alvaro Uribe has lost six points in voter intention in a matter of eight months. Or at least that is what a survey commissioned by a series of Colombian media outlets and produced by Invamer Gallup says. Here go the numbers:

-Alvaro Uribe (Conservative Party): 64.1%
-Horacio Serpa (Liberal Party): 19.6%
-Carlos Gaviria (Former President, Democratic Independent Pole): 9.9%

The question is not whether Uribe will win, but when. A first round victory, a given fact eight months ago, is looking less likely.

Uribe is a free marketer with close ties to the US.
