How Raila Will Beat Ruto By 58 To 60 Per Cent, There Will Be No Runoff- Manyora

The two foremost presidential contenders William Ruto of Kenya kwanza and Azimio's Raila Odinga will be squaring it out on august 9.

The recent opinion polls by Tifa indicated that Raila will beat Ruto by 38% to 35% if elections were held now.

Prior to that, another opinion poll by nation showed that both Raila and Ruto will tie at 42% each.

From the foregoing, its clear that there will be a runoff because nobody will be able to get the 50+1 as the constitution requires.

Nevertheless, Political analyst professor Herman manyora on Thursday ruled out the possibility of a runoff in the upcoming general election.

Speaking through his YouTube Channel, he said that even if in the most unlikely event that Kalonzo joins Ruto, Raila will still emerge Victorious through empowering the two Ukambani governors.

He however said Kalonzo will finally be back to azimio and took his position of chief minister in the fullness of time.

He went on to say that Raila's decision to have Karua as his running mate is going to be a big conversation in days to come among Kenyans from the civil society, Media and women leagues.

According to professor Manyora, the conversation around Karua ticket will dwarf Ruto's bottom up and Hustler narrative.

He said with this happening a few days to the general election, it will have a bearing on the outcome.

He concluded by predicting that Raila's popularity will continue soaring until he hits 58 percent or 60 when elections will be held.

For the deputy president William Ruto, he said there is nothing he can do to salvage his nosediving popularity.
