The latest Steadmann polls released moments ago show that Raila Odinga of ODM has stretched his lead to 46% against incumbent Mwai Kibaki’s 42%. Kalonzo Musyoka still trails and now has 10%
The NMG sponsored polls from Strategic Research, Infotrak Harris and Consumer Insight has the big 3 rated as follows;
Strategic Research: Raila-43%, Kibaki-39%, Kalonzo-17%
Infotrak Harris: Raila-43.7%, Kibaki-39.2, Kalonzo-15.2%
Consumer Insight: Raila-43%, Kibaki-39%, Kalonzo-15%
Interestingly Kumekucha has done its’ own poll, but I have rejected the results for now and it is currently being re-done. Our survey had a much higher concentration amongst the down and out and ordinary Kenyans than all the others. The reason I rejected our first attempt at a poll is that it shows Kalonzo Musyoka edging slightly ahead of President Kibaki to occupy the number 2 slot. That surely can’t be accurate, especially when you take the demographic figures of the Kikuyu community into account.
The more believable aspect of our poll (but still doubtful to many Kenyans) is that Raila has a lead of over 30% on President Kibaki.
Kindly don’t ask me to publish that poll because I want to do this right and publish something here that I can confidently defend from the hawk eyed and extremely intelligent PKW and other Kumekucha friends.
P.S. Maybe I should NOT have published that last bit of info knowing the way some people will react here.
