Colombia's President Juan Manuel Santos has gained a lead in a tight June 15 election race over right-wing opposition candidate Oscar Ivan Zuluaga, a poll published on Friday showed, hours after another indicated they were neck-and-neck. The poll, by researcher Cifras y Conceptos, showed 43.4 percent of respondents would vote for the center-right Santos versus 38.5 percent for Zuluaga in an election campaign that has centered on how to end the country's five-decade civil war.
