Since being chosen as Raila's running companion, Martha Karua has had a great influence in Azimio. The leader of Narc Kenya has returned a sizable number of votes to Raila, and she is equating Rigathi Gachagua's influence that he previously established. Rigathi is from Nyeri, whereas Karua is from Kirinyaga. Let's examine the leaders in these two important counties in light of this influence.
William Ruto is the front-runner in these two counties, according to two recent surveys by Infotrak and Mizani. Infotrak estimates that UDA leader William Ruto enjoys a 58 percent popularity advantage over competitor Raila Odinga in Nyeri county, where his deputy is from. In Kirinyaga, where Karua is from, Ruto has a 59 percent support rating compared to Odinga's 19 percent.
According to the Mizani survey, Ruto continues to lead Odinga in Nyeri and Kirinyaga. Ruto is more well-liked in Nyeri than Raila is, 71.0 percent to 24.0 percent. Ruto has 72.1 percent of the vote in Kirinyaga, compared to Raila's 24.9 percent. Ruto is the most popular candidate in Nyeri and Kirinyaga according to both Infotrak and Mizani polls.
