A poll conducted by the SA Institute of Race Relations (IRR) predicts a massive drop in national support for the ruling ANC and spells trouble for the DA in the Western Cape. 9% turnout scenario, the ANC will get 51% of the national vote in the general elections on May 8, the IRR poll states - compared with 62. But the pollsters have been swiftly criticised by observers.
Economic analyst Russell Lamberti commented: "IRR poll quite a bombshell - almost too much to believe . Gotta say that the plummet in the ANC numbers in the IRR poll has to raise serious sampling questions.
Big test for IRR polling cred now.
