After Chris published results of the controversial results of the Kumekucha survey on the forthcoming Kenya polls, Steadman Group of Kenya has released its final results this afternoon.
According to Steadman, their final poll shows Raila Odinga still leads at 45 %, while Mwai Kibaki follows closely at 43% and Kalonzo Musyoka trailing at 10%. Steadman also announced that ODM remained the most popular political party at 45%, followed by PNU at 37% and Kalonzo Musyoka’s ODM-Kenya with 9%.
Steadman interviewed a total of 6,111 voters in all of Kenya's 210 constituencies. This works out to approximately 29.1 people per constituency. The survey was done between 11th and 16th December 2007.
Meanwhile from Washington DC, Gallup Poll also published an opinion poll report of Kenyan voters that shows the two leading presidential hopefuls are still in a close race, just 10 days before the Dec. 27 election. Results from the Gallup Poll conducted between Dec. 5 and Dec. 14, 2007, show 44% of registered Kenyan voters say they intend to vote for incumbent President Mwai Kibaki from the Party of National Unity (PNU), while 43% say they plan to vote for Raila Odinga, who is running on the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) ticket. Kalonzo Musyoka of the Orange Democratic Movement-Kenya (ODM-K) elicits the support of 12% of registered Kenyan voters. Read the detailed Gallup Poll report here.
When the presidential results are finally announced in slightly of a week's time, Kenyans and the world will be eager to know who their next president will be. Hopefully, it will end the anxiety that 'opinion polls' are causing.
