The author describes some of the characteristics of Colombia's current political spectrum based on a comparative view of the ideological positions of Colombian, Venezuelan and Uruguayan citizens.This shows that Colombians are closer to the right of the ideological spectrum than most Latin Americans, who have turned to the left.The 2006 Latin American Public Opinion Project survey (LAPOP) shows that on average, only Dominican and Honduran citizens are more inclined to the right than Colombians.
