A recent survey has found that the ANC has lost huge support – as much as 19% of the national vote - since 2008.

According to the Sunday Independent, the survey, conducted by research company Ipsos, found that the loss appears to have happened between November 2012 and November last year.

Issues contributing to this include the Marikana shooting incident, the scandal around President Jacob Zuma’s R206m security upgrades to his Nkandla home in KwaZulu-Natal and to other ANC leadership issues.

The study also found that new and smaller parties could make some inroads in the national ballot. Ipsos said however, that a second study was scheduled for early this year.
