Uhuru ahead of Raila in new poll

President Uhuru Kenyatta still enjoys high approval ratings ahead of opposition leader Raila Odinga, a new opinion poll has revealed.

According to the poll by Ipsos, if elections were held today, 47 per cent of Kenyans would vote for President Uhuru Kenyatta while 30 per cent would vote for Cord leader Raila Odinga.

Only 6 per cent of Kenyans would vote for Cord co-principal Kalonzo Musyoka while three per cent would vote for Musalia Mudavadi and less than one per cent for Ford Kenya’s Moses Wetangula

The survey, which was conducted between January 9 and 26 and which interviewed 2,057 respondents across 42 counties, also revealed that Jubilee was the most popular party with 45 per cent of those interviewed saying they supported Jubilee Party while 34 per cent said they were affiliated to Cord and the National Super Alliance (NASA).

At least eight per cent are undecided on which political party they are  allied to and 11 per cent are not attached to any party. This notwithstanding, they would still vote for President Uhuru Kenyatta. 28 per cent of those not affiliated to any political outfit will vote for Uhuru as well as 24 per cent of the undecided.
