The latest Ipsos poll suggests that the Democratic Alliance (DA) and the African National Congress (ANC) may be in trouble.
Ipsos conducted the poll between March and April and used a demographically representative sample of over 3,600 people.
According to the results, the ANC’s support has dropped from 61% in its March poll to 56.9% in April, and the DA has dropped even further from 18% in March to just 15% in April.
The Economic Freedom Fighters has remained steady at 9.5 %.
Ipsos director Mari Harris speaks to Clement Manyathela on the Xolani Gwala Show about the findings.
What we did is give everyone partaking in the poll a ballot paper which resembles the ballot paper that they will get on 8 May and they had to indicate their own choices. Based on that, we used the results and filtered them by registered voters and projected them to the IEC figures.— Mari Harris, Director - Ipsos
Those figures show a little less support for both the ANC and the DA.— Mari Harris, Director - Ipsos
She says that not all registered voters will vote on 8 May and thus their poll was a medium turnout scenario.
