New Opinion Polls

Steadman has today published new opinion polls that show a shift in voter preferences in the lead up to the General Election. The election date has also been announced. Voting day is 27/12.

The Steadman polls indicate that Raila Odinga's support has fallen from 53% to 50%, the incumbent Mwai Kibaki saw his stock rise from 37% to 39%. The ODM-K candidate had an 8% share of the respondents' support. These changes are within the margins of error and give the impression that not much has changed.

But do these really matter or are Kenyans minds made up? Will ODM's euphoric high be diminished by December 27? Are Kenyans paying more attention to the issues? Join the discussion here.

We also have our own poll. (You will find it at the bottom of the left hand side column of the homepage).
