Deputy President, William Ruto.
With only one year remaining before the 2022 general election, supporters of the deputy president have got a reason to smile going by the latest results from an opinion poll carried out by Radio Africa.
According to an article released by the star newspaper, it shows that if the presidential election was to be held today, William Ruto would emerge the winner with a whopping 43% of the total votes cast.
However, Ruto should also not smile because the poll reveals that the election would not end with a normal first round because none of the presidential candidates has reached the required minimum of 50%+1 of the total votes.
This means that there would be a run off and key coalitions would be paramount to guarantee either of the two presidential candidates a swift win.
Going by this poll, the handshake team which is mainly banking on Raila's candidature might be forced to go back to the drawing board and formulate a new plan to dilute Ruto support.
The deputy president has been topping in almost all of the latest opinion polls that have been carried out by various companies. Nevertheless, dynamics in politics cannot be ignored and therefore only time will tell if the second in command will be able to maintain and hold together his support base.
