Election poll flawed - Agang SA

2014-04-20 22:28
Johannebsurg - Agang SA on Sunday disputed poll results indicating negligible support, saying it was confident it would come third in the country's upcoming elections.

"According to the poll, support for Agang SA was so low it failed to register," said party spokesperson Jock McConnachie.

McConnachie was responding to a report in the Sunday Times that said in an Ipsos election survey of 2219 registered voters, Agang SA achieved lower levels of support than other opposition parties scoring support levels between 2.8% and 0.3%.

The parties included the IFP, Cope, ACDP, and FF Plus.

"We confidently predict that Agang SA will not [just] beat the combined vote of all the above parties but that we will end up third, ahead of the EFF."

According to the poll, between 21 March and 4 April, support for the ANC was determined to be at 65.5%, followed by the DA with 23.1%.

The third largest group of supporter – 4% of those polled - aligned themselves with the EFF.

McConnachie said Agang SA regarded the poll as both "flawed" and "hopelessly outdated".
