For the first time since President Juan Manuel Santos took office, there are more Colombians who disapprove of the job he is doing than approve, according to the most recent Gallup poll. Results revealed that the President’s approval rating fell nine points to 44 percent.
Most Colombians, 67 percent, believe President Santos has failed to handle the situation with guerrilla groups appropriately, while only 20 percent approve.
Meanwhile results were all that favorable for Mayor of Medellín, Anibal Gaviria, either. The poll showed that his approval rating among residents of Medellín dropped from 72 to 54 percent. Pessimism in Medellín also went up in the past couple of months, climbing from 43 to 54 percent, mostly because of insecurity.
