A new poll has showed that Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance presidential aspirant Raila Odinga would win the presidency if elections were held today.
The poll released by Infotrak on Wednesday, August 3, indicated that the ODM Leader would win in at least 24 counties with 10.8 million votes.
The research firm noted that if Raila gets half of the undecided votes then he will win the presidency in round one with 52 percent or 11.4 million votes.
On the other hand, the poll showed that Deputy President William Ruto of the United Democratic Party (UDA) would lead in 17 counties with a total of 9.3 million votes.
The poll indicated that even if Ruto won 100 per cent of the undecided votes, he would still not clinch the presidency as he would not hit the 50 per cent plus one vote.
This came days after a poll by TIFA showed that Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition party is still the most popular coalition in the country.
According to the poll conducted between July 31 and August 1, the Raila Odinga-led coalition emerged top with 46 per cent.
On the other hand, Kenya Kwanza Alliance led by Deputy President William Ruto said as ranked second with 36 per cent.
“Likewise the country’s high degree of local pluralism, in none of the zones used by TIFA does either coalition attract the support of more than two-thirds of all residents, aside from Odinga’s ‘home-turf’ of Nyanza and Ruto’s of Central Rift 69% and 65% respectively.” TIFA said.
The number of undecided people stood at 16 per cent.
