A recent survey revealed that the president's image barely reaches a favorability of 20% of the population.
Disapproval of the administration of the president of Colombia, Iván Duque, stands at 79 percent, according to the most recent survey by Pulso País, conducted by Datexco Company in the South American country.
The survey, of which data was collected between June 4 and 17, 2021, evaluated different topics of current Colombian affairs, such as the management and approval of the Government, ministerial cabinet, entities, characters, and political and social positions on various issues.
According to the results from 900 respondents, 84 percent of the citizens thought that Colombia is on the "wrong track," while 12 percent indicated that it is on the "right track," illustrated, according to the study, in the perception of security.
Seventy-two percent of those surveyed believe that security in the country has worsened, while 21 percent said that it has "stayed the same," and only 5 percent suggested that it has improved.
