Presidential Election Is Heading For Run-Off: Afrobarometer Survey

The latest Mass Public Opinion Institute (MPOI) survey says that if elections are to be held today, a run-off will be necessary as the two leading candidates will not garner sufficient votes to win an outrun majority.  President Emmerson Mnangagwa is projected to win 42 percent of the vote while Nelson Chamisa is projected to win 31 percent which is short of the 50 percent + 1 needed to win the presidential election.

MPOI principal researcher, Stephen Ndoma said,

We asked our respondents if presidential elections were held tomorrow (during the survey last month), which presidential candidate from which political party they would vote for and 42% said they would vote for Zanu PF, compared to the 31% for the MDC-T, combined party and alliance…More than 77% of Zimbabweans said they will definitely vote in this year’s election, 9% said they will probably vote, while 5% said they may or may not vote.

25 percent of the people refused to reveal their preferences or are still undecided.
