Ruto is up against three other candidates, with his main opponent and the other frontrunner in the contest being ODM party leader Raila Odinga.
But Gachagua has said that Raila will not succeed against Ruto, and will not even be close to the DP when the presidential election results are released.
He has predicted that Raila will score below 40 percent. For him, Ruto will emerge victorious with over 60 percent of the cast votes.
Gachagua has, as a result, told Kenyans to ignore opinion polls placing Raila ahead of Ruto, stating that they are fashioned to mislead the masses.
He has as well rubbished the narrative that Raila is eating into Ruto's votes in Mt Kenya, saying that coming from there, he can confirm that this is a lie.
"When you say Raila Odinga has a support of more than 20 percent in Mt Kenya region, I wonder, which mountain? I live there and I talk to people and nothing has changed. We are going to win this election by over 60 percent," the firebrand politician is quoted.
Interestingly, this is the same margin state officials allied to Raila have claimed will be the distance between him and Ruto in the awaited polls.
Earlier, Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho claimed that basing on National Intelligence Service data, Raila will score 60 percent and defeat Ruto.
