Survey puts ANC well ahead in election run-up

Independent pollster Markinor says according to its latest survey the ANC is likely to take 65 to 70 percent of the vote in Wednesday’s local elections, gaining on the 59 percent it garnered in the last local poll in 2000. However, this will be no better than the 70 percent it got in the 2004 national vote, suggesting that the party may have hit a political ceiling. A director and political analyst at Markinor, Mari Harris, is quoted as saying the ANC probably will win everywhere, but with a very close race in Cape Town. According to Harris the poll, released at the weekend, was based on surveys conducted with three-thousand-500 voters two weeks ago.
