ANC, DA support drops while EFF picks up

- | 6 months ago

With just over a week to go before election day next Wednesday, the latest Ipsos poll shows support for the governing ANC dropping to 56. 15% result it garnered in the 2014 elections.

The DA could drop dramatically to 15% from the 22% it obtained in 2014. According to the poll, support for the EFF could grow from the 6% it scored in the last elections to 9. Support for the Inkatha Freedom Party is also projected to grow from 2. However, a poor turnout on election day could substantially benefit the ANC, whose support could go as high as 61%, while the DA would increase its result to 19% and the EFF would climb to 11%.

The Ipsos study was conducted between March and April with 3 600 respondents.
