According to a recent survey performed by Trends and Insights Africa (TIFA), Raila Odinga, the candidate representing the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance, is the most popular presidential contender.

According to a survey performed by TIFA, 39% of Kenyans will choose Raila Odinga as their next president together with his running mate, while 34% favor William Ruto as the next Head of State, together with his running mate Martha Karua.

According to lead researcher Tom Wolf, 3 percent of Kenyans identify with the Wiper party, while another 3 percent associate with the Jubilee party.

13 percent of Kenyans are still uncertain on their preferred political party, while 18 percent do not identify with any party.

"Only ODM and UDA can claim large broad support in terms of national geography," Wolf added.

Regarding support for political alliances, the survey reveals that Azimio leads with 38%, followed by Kenya Kwanza with 28%, OKA with 3%, and Undecided with 31%.
