A new poll released on Wednesday night found that 25 percent of voters would be willing to choose again Juan Manuel Santos as Colombia’s president in the elections of May 25, 2014.

Santos and his Party of National Unity won over 25 percent of survey respondents, which is more than Uribe party candidate Oscar Ivan Zuluaga with 13 percent, reported Colombia’s W Radio.

This reinforces the first two major polls released in late November.
