Deputy President William Ruto Loses 300,000 Votes in Presidential Race

Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party presidential candidate Raila Odinga has gained one percent and maintained the leads in the latest opinion polls by Infotrak with a popularity of 43 percent.

The poll, released on Wednesday, July 13th, 2022 in Nairobi, also shows his main rival in the presidential race Deputy President William Ruto of Kenya Kwanza Alliance come in second with 37 percent while Roots Party presidential candidate George Wajackoyah comes in a distant third at 4 percent.

“Mr Odinga’s popularity means that he has 9.4 million votes while Dr Ruto has 8.1 million votes if election were to be done now. DP Ruto on the other hand has lost about 300,000 votes from the 8.4 million he had in the last poll,”said Infotrak boss Angela Ambitho

Agano Party presidential candidate David Mwaure Waihiga has 0.1 percent.

“If Ruto’s popularity has dropped by one percent and Raila has gained by the same margin then the net gain from undecided voters must have gone to Wajackoyah,” said Ms Ambitho.

“Raila has not gained much since we did our last poll in June. His popularity has increased by one percent and Ruto’s has gone down by one percent from 38 percent last time,” said.

The undecided voters account for 16 percent or 3.6 million voters.

The opposition Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party boss Mr Odinga’s popularity was 42 percent in June before slightly moving up by one percent in the last one month.
