Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta will beat Prime Minister Raila Odinga in a runoff vote if polls were held today, a new survey shows.
The survey by Ipsos Synovate indicates that Uhuru would win the polls by 46 per cent against Raila’s 42 per cent.
However the Prime Minister remains the man to beat in the first round with a popularity of 33 per cent against Uhuru’s 26 per cent. Ruto comes third at 9 per cent popularity rating, Kalonzo 8 per cent and Musalia 4 per cent.
Ipsos Synovate socio political analyst Tom Wolf however maintained that the choice of running mate and the nature of the pre-election coalition that would be formed ahead of the polls are critical determiners.
“These are just individual popularity ratings. A lot is likely to change after December 4 when political parties deposit pre-election agreements with registrar of political parties. The choice of running mate is also very important,” noted wolf.
