Zuma will hurt ANC at the polls -survey
The South African Citizens Survey indicates that 53% of African National Congress (ANC) supporters will less likely vote for the party with former President Jacob Zuma on its campaign trail.
The report says 34% [6.7 million] supporters would be more likely to vote for the ANC in this scenario,” the report said.
Political analyst Kagiso Pooe says the survey is surprising when you compare it to the ANC's internal poll.
It is not clear where they did the polling. I always say with these polls, I take it with a bit of pessimism.Kagiso Pooe, Political analyst
Pooe says while the former president cannot be constrained to certain areas, the ANC's strategy has aimed to limit Zuma's campaigning to places where he is most popular.
Their bigger strategy has been to just try and limit the former president to areas.Kagiso Pooe, Political analyst
