The poll also demonstrates that our Political Party Representatives need to do more to improve the relationship between Parties. Most importantly the poll suggests that the public will not accept Covid 19 as an excuse to postpone the elections which they also believe will be peaceful. About 55% of respondents believe that there is a 75% – 100% chance that the elections will be peaceful.
In conclusion, a few points worth noting is the sample size used for the poll are 969 households of which 95% said they had a voters card. The poll was conducted via telephone calls and oversampling of up to 50% was used to account for non-response.
According to the report, the percentage of women interviewed is 28% meanwhile the percentage of women registered to vote is 57%. Likewise, the percentage of people interviewed aged 18-44 interviewed are 63%, however, the percentage of youth (18-34) registered in the voter’s register is 58%. These both highlight some mismatch in the sampling sizes of women more than youth.
