The poll covered 900 respondents aged 18 years and above, who were identified as likely voters on the August 9 general election.

Other competitive races are yet to take shape since, in both Senator and Woman Rep races, more than half remain undecided.

In the Senatorial race, Daniel Maanzo emerged as the most preferred aspirant with 21 per cent followed by Governor Kivutha Kibwana with 11 per cent and 61 per cent of respondents don’t know or are undecided on the preferred senator.

In the Woman Rep position, Rose Museo is the most preferred aspirant with 12 per cent and a whopping 69 per cent is still undecided.

Respondents, however, are clear about where they fall on the national political spectrum as 43% are behind the Wiper party and 69 per cent support Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya Coalition.

Raila Odinga is the most preferred presidential aspirant in the county with 48 per cent.
