Nevertheless the PM has narrowed the gap in a run-off compared to October last year when Uhuru posted a 44 per cent approval in a run-off compared to RailaÂfs 41 per cent. There were 15 per cent undecided voters at the time.
In the run-off with Ruto, the PM would post 48 per cent against RutoÂfs 33 per cent and score 46 per cent against Vice President Kalonzo MusyokaÂfs 41 per cent should he go into a run-off with the VP. A Raila-Karua run-off would record 46 per cent for the PM and 39 per cent for Karua, in the survey carried out between April 6 and April 17, 2012.
And with all the presidential aspirants contesting the presidency Raila would beat them at 34 per cent, followed by Uhuru at 22 per cent, Kalonzo would get nine per cent while Ruto would garner eight per cent of the votes. Karua and Mudavadi would each get five per cent. The survey used a sample of 2,000 adult respondents.
