Colombia’s Santos Comes To Power Very Popular Poll

first_imgBy Dialogo August 06, 2010 Colombia’s President-elect Juan Manuel Santos will take over the Andean nation’s highest office more popular than the incumbent leader credited with a dramatic fall in violence, an opinion poll showed on Friday. Colombia is much safer than when outgoing leader Alvaro Uribe took power in 2002, thanks to his U.S.-backed offensive against leftist guerrillas. His success against rebels and drug lords kept him popular and brought an uptick in investment. Santos — who takes office on August 7 and heads Uribe’s ‘U’ Party — will become president with 76 percent of Colombians rating him as favorable — one percentage point above his predecessor and Colombia’s most popular leader in history. “We’re in the honeymoon phase because when there’s a change of government and a well-received government ends, that generates a lot of optimism in people,” said Jorge Londono, head of Gallup, which published its poll in local media. Former Defense Minister Santos — who won the most votes in Colombia’s history in June — has broadly pledged to keep up the security and pro-business policies of Uribe and has benefited from the president’s strong rural support. When Uribe came to power for the first of his two terms, Marxist guerrillas controlled large swathes of territory and could carry out attacks in major cities — including a strike on the presidential palace in 2002. But eight years later, the rebels are hemmed in to remote, rural areas of Latin America’s No. 4 oil producer — and that has opened up new parts of the country to increased economic activity, improved Colombia’s image and kept Uribe popular. The Gallup poll — which interviewed 1,200 people across five big cities from July 16-24 — found 52 percent said the country was getting better, versus 41 percent who said the same in February this year. As Uribe prepares to step down, 80 percent of Colombians approve of the job he is doing. Speculation is rife about his political future post-presidency. Half of Colombians said the country would continue getting better at the start of Santos’ administration. Santos will inherit a feud with Caracas — which has hurt trade worth billions of dollars a year — over accusations by Uribe’s government that Venezuela harbors Colombian guerrillas — charges that saw President Hugo Chavez break ties.last_img read more

Drew Lock injury update: Broncos QB to ‘miss some time’ with thumb sprain, report says

first_imgDrew Lock appears like he’ll be sidelined for at least the next few weeks. The rookie quarterback badly sprained his thumb in the Broncos’ preseason loss to the 49ers on Monday, according to a report from NFL Network, which cites unidentified league sources. Lock will not need surgery but is expected to miss some time, the report says.  An injury to the right thumb of a righty-throwing QB is not good. But the team does have depth in the QB room. https://t.co/6gjxmdQ0s9— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 20, 2019Lock, 22, suffered the injury when he was sacked in the second quarter. He remained in the game for one more play, throwing an incomplete pass, and was removed before the next series. “The last throw I was like, ‘I’m going to muscle through this. If we get the first down, I’m going to muscle through this drive. But I’m going to get through this one play,’” Lock told reporters after the game (via the team’s official website). “And, shoot, the ball came out of my hand pretty nice after that. That’s a good sign to me: being able to throw right after that. It hurt a little bit, but once I got over (to the bench) it kind of stiffened up a little bit.” Related News Theo Riddick injury update: Broncos running back out 6-8 weeks with shoulder fracture, report says Jimmy Garoppolo ‘obviously a little frustrated’ with lackluster preseason debut The Missouri product slipped to the second round of the 2019 draft, where the Broncos selected him with the No. 42 overall pick. He has completed 31 of his 51 passes for 254 yards with a touchdown and an interception in three preseason appearances. Lock was listed as Denver’s third-string quarterback behind Joe Flacco and Kevin Hogan on the team’s latest depth chart.  Mike Shanahan reveals he almost returned to Broncos “I’m just trying to learn as much as I can, work, be a good teammate, all of those things you need to do as a (quarterback),” Lock said last week, via ESPN. “I’ve said this is a prime spot to be in, and it is. … I have to concentrate on getting better.”The Broncos have two preseason games remaining before they face the Raiders in Oakland in Week 1 action Sept. 9.last_img read more
