A survey by the Centre for Social Science Research at Kumasi Technical University (KTU) has predicted victory for the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) candidate, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in the upcoming presidential elections, with 52.3% of votes.

The survey also predicts that the flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama with second with 47.1% of votes.

The Centre’s latest study, conducted ahead of the 2020 polls, was released today, Monday, November 30, 2020.

They insist they sampled 88,000 respondents nationwide in the survey.

According to the survey by the Centre for Social Science Research at KTU, “the NPP’s worst performance is predicted to be 51.4% of the total vote, with an average performance of 52.3%. The NDC came second with the best performance of 47.1%.

Meanwhile, the survey adds that the two leading political parties will each win seven of the 16 regions in the country.

It, however, said the Bono East and Greater Accra regions are still up for grabs and urged the leading political parties to up their game in those areas.

“The NPP are also most likely to win 7 regions; Ahafo, Ashanti, Bono, Central, Eastern, North East and Western regions. The remaining 2 regions; Bono East and Greater Accra are still up for grasp by any of the two main political parties who works extra hard.”

An earlier survey by the Political Science Department of the University of Ghana predicted a 51.7% victory for the NPP’s Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

“The respondents who said they were going to vote based on sound campaign message, their preferred choices were NPP’s Akufo-Addo 52.5 and followed by the NDC’s John Mahama 40.9. GUM’s Christian Kwabena Andrews got 1.3 but what is more important is that 3.7 percent of Ghanaians have not decided.”

“When we asked our sample which presidential candidate they were going to vote for if elections were held today, 51.7 percent said they will vote for Akufo-Addo, and 40.4% said they will vote for Mahama while 1.4% said they will vote for GUM. So that is what the 11,000 respondents that we spoke to said.”
