Uhuru leads Raila in 2017 elections: Poll

27 June 2016, 16:58 William Korir

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta leads CORD leader Raila Odinga by over 20% in new polls related to the 2017 Genera Elections.

The poll by Ipsos Synovate shows that if the elections were to be held today, 51% would vote for the President with Raila further back at 28%.

That is a huge gap of 23%.

The poll was conducted during from June 4 to 18 2016.

Deputy President William Ruto, Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka and Ford Kenya's Moses Wetang'ula come a fr distant third, with only 2 per cent.

12 per cent of Kenyans however remain undecided on who they would vote for, with all other presidential hopefuls getting a total of only 2 per cent.

ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi wins less than 1% support with others negligible.

Ipsos lead man Tom Wolf says, however, that until CORD names its presidential candidate and running mate, these figures should not be interpreted as reflecting an actual election outcome.

“While it is certain that Uhuru will be Jubilee's presidential candidate and Ruto his running mate, there remains uncertainty as to who will be Cord's torch-bearers and whether its leaders will remain united after the decision is made. As such, these numbers could change dramatically after Cord has identified its presidential ticket," he stated.

The likelyhood though as shown by this and previous polls is that it will be a two horse race come the 2017 polls just as it was back in 2013.
