A new survey by Trends and Insights for Africa (TIFA)has revealed that Raila Odinga is the most preferred candidate at 46.7 percent’
With just 10 days to the general elections, the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya presidential aspirant is followed closely by Deputy President William Ruto who has been polled at 44.4 per cent.
Moreover, George Wajackoyah of Roots party polled at 1.8 per cent while David Mwaure of Agano party trailed at 0.1 per cent.
TIFA Lead Researcher Tom Wolf released the survey on Friday, July 29.
Nevertheless, the survey showed that 5.2 per cent of the respondents were still undecided.
Likewise, Wolf noted that, despite Odinga having more national support, there is a likelihood that there will not be a winner in the first round.
“The presence of Wajackoyah and Mwaure raises the possibility that neither Odinga nor Ruto will be able to secure a first-round win,” he stated.
Likewise, the TIFA poll conducted between 21st and July 26, 2022, revealed that Raila – Karua ticket is supported by more men than women at 51 per cent and 42 per cent respectively.
“Ruto-Gachagua ticket doesn’t have a much gender gap,” Wolf reported.
Furthermore, the TIFA survey revealed that Azimio is the most preferred coalition at 47 per cent, followed by Kenya Kwanza at 42 per cent. However, 11 per cent of respondents were still undecided.
Wolf also noted that Kenya Kwanza dominates in Central Rift and Mt.Kenya.
Conclusively, TIFA said a total of 2000 registered voters were interviewed during the survey, through a face-to-face method.
