For the past year, the government-FARC negotiations in Havana have barely advanced - and then came the FARC's massacre of 10 soldiers in El Cauca.
Altogether 69% of Colombians now feel pessimistic about the negotiations, while only 29% express optimism.

While Santos' support falls, that of ex-Pres. Alvaro Uribe, leader of the opposition in Congress and fervent critic of the negotiations, has surged to 57%.

|Almost 90% want the guerrillas to go to prison.|
