A survey by the Political Science Department of the University of Ghana has predicted a 51.7% win for the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the upcoming 2020 polls.
The flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) John Dramani Mahama is expected to follow with 40.4% of the vote cast.
The candidate of the Ghana Union Movement (GUM), Christian Kwabena Andrews, came third in the survey.
According to the UG Political Science Department, they spoke to 11,000 respondents in the survey.
The researchers say 80% of the respondents said they will vote based on the campaign message.
Out of the number, 52.5% said they will vote for the NPP’s Akufo-Addo,while 40. 9% said they will vote for the NDC’s John Mahama.
The senior lecturer at the Department, Alex Kaakyire Duku Frempong in leading the presentation said about 3.7% Ghanaians are still undecided.
He thus urged politicians to look for such persons and sell their campaign messages to them.
“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.”
