Three opinion polls by Infotrak, Consumer Insight and Strategic Research, commissioned by The Nation Media Group, suggest a slight lead for Raila Odinga (Cord Alliance) over his main rival Uhuru Kenyatta (Jubilee Alliance) in the race for Kenya’s presidency, with only six days to go to polling day. The most recent poll by Ipsos Synovate gave a very small lead to Kenyatta.
