Poll: Uhuru, Ruto support reaches 70% mark

15 October 2014, 19:59 William Korir

Nairobi - A new poll shows that support for president Uhuru Kenyatta has risen, as has that of his deputy William Ruto, as well as for the Pesa Mashinani referendum campaign.

The poll released Wednesday by Ipsos LTD, shows support for president Kenyatta to be at 71%, a sharp increase thanks to his handling of the ICC Status Conference last week.

This is an increase from 43% that he had earlier polled.

On the other hand, support for the Pesa Mashinani referendum campaign by Governors has reached 58%, higher than CORD's Okoa Kenya campaign which is stuck at 38%.

The poll was conducted last week between October 11 and 13, 2014.

According to observers, the card pulled by the president in travelling to the Hague for the ICC Status Conference was the ultimate deal breaker.

" The president did himself no harm by heading to the Hague and handling the situation like he did", political observer Joseph Kinyua says.

" That was what I call a deal breaker. He showed himself to be a true Kenyan hero and that move was bound to win him even more support than he has had previously", Kinyua adds.

On the other hand, the Okoa Kenya referendum campaign by the CORD coalition continues to struggle thanks to increased negative energy created by the process and its affiliation to the opposition as compared to Pesa Mashinani which has attached itself to the feelings of the normal Kenyan, Kinyua believes.
