Survey: President Kenyatta most popular presidential candidate

By Kevin Wachira

An opinion poll released by Ipsos Synovate indicates that, President Uhuru Kenyatta, would be re-elected by at least 50 per cent of voters if elections were to be held Wednesday.

The poll observes that the incumbent is more popular in 7 out of 8 former provinces compared to other Presidential Aspirants.

Cord leader, Raila Odinga, despite being the most popular candidate in the opposition, ranks comes second at 22 per cent.

The pollster, however, indicates Kenyans are concerned with threats posed by drought and famine, increased corruption as well as high cost of Living.

According to the head of the pollster, Tom Wolf, the opposition could have performed poorly in the survey due to uncertainty regarding their presidential flag bearer.

The survey conducted between 17th and 19th December among 1,000 respondents, further shows that Jubilee is the most popular party at 51 percent followed by CORD and its constituent parties at 27 percent.
