Latest Synovate opinion poll outlandish


The current pre-occupation by pollsters in releasing an unauthenticated poll is a serious indictment that some of us intent on fanning chaos have not learnt from the debacle of 2007 elections.

Whereas you would assume that a scientific poll would place all the contestants on a level pedestal, pollsters are roller costing the public into hardened perceptions that will cost this country dearly should their assumed leaders fail to succeed the way pollsters want to project them.

The Ipsos Synovate poll is a clear example of the recent pollster infatuation with empty electoral engineering divorced from reality.

The Synovate poll deliberately and defectively uses faulty sampling weighed in favour of the so-called two horses at the expense of other presidential contestants.

The net result is that pollsters are setting up Kenyans for post-elections conflict over elections results.

We are seeing a situation where pollsters have become incurable manipulators of public opinion.

Unfortunately, media publicising this polls without asking hard questions on their authenticity may inadvertently be abetting a deliberate priming of some Kenyans to reject the elections outcome.

  1. I wish you had you own research that was weighted properly….and that you were factual with data telling us where the error is….this is unconvincing

  2. It’s easy to skew poll results through sampling methods adopted. Anyone can conduct own polls and tilt them in favor of certain candidates. What the current poll suggests is that the margin of error is huge; maybe upto 5-10%. Kibisu is right on one point; Kenyans are being set up for conflict. Cry babies are busy…….

  3. There is nothing on this earth stopping UDF, or any other political grouping, from submitting its own set of questions to be determined by opinion pollsters…why must the results only be outlandish and cooked if it disfavours your side…Also i find Kibisu Kabatesi to be unnecessarily rancourous and shrill

  4. Only fools dispute opinion pools. The wise, will ask, where am i weak at and then you score better rating among electorates

  5. kabatesi, you dont have to comment on anything that has pited your guy to be down. This polls are real, why didnt you say that those days when your man was with RAO? he was rdiding high hheeeee..???? style up
