imageA third poll, this one by Ipsos-Napoleon Franco [PDF], provides another snapshot of the Colombian electorate in regards to the pending first round election for president.  The numbers are quite similar to the two previous polls (i.e., Gallup and Datexco).

Beyond the question of candidate-preference (as detailed on the right), 54% of the respondents think that Colombia is on the right path and 77% have a favorable view of President Uribe.  Both of those numbers are good news for Juan Manuel Santos and also explains why the top two candidates come from the current governing coalition.

Interestingly, 24% of respondents identify their party affiliation as with the Liberals, but PL candidate Rafael Pardo only has 4% in the poll.

Party affiliation in the poll is as follows:

La U 27%
Liberal 24%
No Party 19%
Conservative 16%
Polo Democrático 5%
Cambio Radical 3%
Other Party 3%
Independent 3%
