Jubilee ranked most popular party

The Jubilee party has been ranked as the most popular party in the country at 40 percent according to a recent research by Infotrack.
The Orange democratic company was ranked second at 21 per cent and Wiper party ranked third at 3 per cent, while Musalia Mudavadi’s Amani National Congress (ANC) and Moses Wetangula’s Ford Kenya followed at 1 percent each.
“We asked which political party they mostly identify with and majority of Kenyans said Jubilee party. So, it is evident that the ruling party is still preferred by many of us,” said Angela Ambitho, Infotrak Chief Executive Officer, while releasing the findings Sunday.
The report further noted that ODM, Wiper, ANC and Ford Kenya appear to have lost popularity in areas considered to be their strongholds after the handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga.
“The ODM party is seen to have weakened its roots in many regions including Nyanza which is the bedrock for ODM at 40 percent now,” she told journalists.
While releasing the results at Infotrak offices in Lavington, Ambitho added that 31 per cent of Kenyans believe the country does not have an opposition. 44 per cent agree that if indeed the opposition still exists then it is not performing its role.
