KENYA: Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s Cord has topped the latest opinion poll as the most preferred coalition in the country.
The poll, conducted by Strategic Africa, shows that Cord is the most popular alliance in the country with popularity of 49.7%.
Jubilee, despite its much publicised wrangles, polled second at 43%.
Peter Kenneth and Raphael Tuju’s coalition came in third at 3.1% while Eugene Wamalwa’s Pambazuka alliance polled at 1.7 %.
When respondents were asked who they preferred as their coalitions flag bearer, 92.8% of the respondents stated they would prefer Raila Odinga as Cord's flag bearer while 6.2% prefer Kalonzo Musyoka.
In the Jubilee alliance which comprises Uhuru, Mudavadi And Ruto, 71.9% would prefer Uhuru Kenyatta as the presidential candidate whereas 18.4% would like to see Musalia Mudavadi as the Jubilee flag bearer.
The poll which was released on Friday, agrees with Ipsos Synovate’s recent survey which showed in a possible scenario where Raila is twinned with Kalonzo and pitted against an Uhuru/Ruto ticket, 47 per cent of Kenyans would vote Raila/Kalonzo while 41 per cent would vote for the later.
