A Ghanaweb June poll has put former president Mahama way ahead of President Akufo-Addo in the 2020 race to the presidency of Ghana.
The poll found that “48% of Ghanaians surveyed in the Ghana Election Poll say they would vote for former President John Mahama if elections were held today, while 35% of the respondents” say they would vote for President Akufo-Addo. This clearly puts former president Mahama in the lead with an overwhelming 13% points difference over president Akufo-Addo.
The study however found that a huge 13% of respondents are not prepared to vote for either of the two candidates.
According to Ghanaweb, “the first wave of results of the Ghana Election Poll conducted online via the renowned market research firm MSI-ACI from May 1 through to June 30, however, finds 17% of respondents saying they will vote for none of them if elections were held today.”
“Out of the weighted sample of 792 adults, John Dramani Mahama won the hearts of more males than females making 50.5% and 45.2% respectively, while President Akufo-Addo won the hearts of 37% of men against 33.3% of women”, the report stated.
It went on to say that, “In the age bracket, however, Nana Akufo-Addo won the hearts of voters between ages 25 and 39 who say they will vote for him if elections were held today. Former President Mahama rather got the attention of voters between ages 40 and 49. Meanwhile, some 33.2% of voters in their 20s showed no interest in voting for any of the two candidates if elections were held today.”
While revealing that the margin of error for the full sample is 3.482%, the report said “In the Greater Accra Region, John Dramani Mahama would win by a narrow margin while President Akufo-Addo would win the Ashanti Region with a wider margin.”
