TIFA: Raila-Karua ticket more popular than Ruto-Rigathi pair


The opinion poll also placed Azimio la Umoja as the most popular coalition in the country, with an approval rating of 38 per cent followed by Deputy President William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza at 28 per cent.

The disintegrated One Kenya Alliance (OKA) coalition had an approval rating of three per cent.

Thirty-one (31) per cent of Kenyans were yet to decide on which coalition to follow, indicating that the frontrunners, Ruto and Odinga, still have some work to do in convincing this group to vote for them.

As of today (Wednesday, May 18), there are some 80 days to go to the August 9 General Election, meaning the two have little time to tilt the undecided lot to their favour.

Thirty-five (35) per cent of women sampled said they would vote for Raila Odinga as president, while 32 per cent said they’d choose William Ruto.

More men (43 per cent) prefer a Raila Odinga presidency to a William Ruto presidency (39 per cent).

More female respondents (19 per cent) were still undecided on who to elect as president in the upcoming general election.

The survey was conducted via telephonic interviews with respondents whose contacts were collected through face–to–face interviews. Kiswahili and English were the languages used during data collection.

“We had over 100 TIFA staff members making calls yesterday (May 17, 2022) from 8am. By evening, we had finished [the data collection],” TIFA director, Maggie Ireri, said during the release of the opinion poll results in Nairobi on Wednesday, May 18.

The data collected was conducted in one day, said the opinion poll firm.
