Although waning, ANC support strong

2011-05-16 20:05

Johannesburg - The ANC remains the strongest political party in the country, although its support seems to have decreased since the 2009 general election, according to a study released on Monday.

The study by Ipsos Markinor found that the African National Congress (ANC) had the support of most South Africans of 18 years and older, at 56.6%, including registered voters and likely voters.

It was followed by the Democratic Alliance (DA), at 19.3%, and the Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP), at 2.1%.

There was 1.2% support for the Congress of the People, 0.5% for the United Democratic Movement and 0.8% each for the African People's Convention, the African Christian Democratic Party, and the Minority Front.

They were followed by the Pan Africanist Congress, with 0.3%, and the Azanian People's Organisation, Freedom Front Plus, Christian Democratic Alliance, National Alliance African Muslim Party and the United Christian Democratic Party, with 0.2% each.

"With the local government elections taking place on Wednesday, the issue of party support is getting a lot of attention," said political analyst Mari Harris.

    Does not add up to 100% ? What am I missing ?

      Nico - 2011-05-16 20:26

      16.4% go to all the other smaller parties thats not worth mentioning. There are a lot of parties in total +- 100 if I don't make a mistake.

      Eduard Marian - 2011-05-16 20:40

      Article doesn't mention those that would other party, did't know, would spoil their ballot, refused to answer, could not answer and that would not vote.

      CtheTruth - 2011-05-16 20:40

      Completely agree! Could there really be at least another 20 or so parties taking a measly 16% of the vote?

      Mthetwa - 2011-05-16 20:54

      The 16.4% should all vote DA & make a real difference

      Wolraad Woltemade - 2011-05-16 21:38

      @ANCBlackAngel - LOL ... The ANC in itself have never conquered anything for the Greater Good for anything other than themselves!

      Wolraad Woltemade - 2011-05-16 21:42

      P.S. Various groups and intellects have conquered various things, founded, build and expanded various things, the ANC unfortunately cannot create, they can only exploit! Sorry boet, you are living a life of hallucination...

      vicj - 2011-05-16 21:48

      @ANCBlackangel, yes you will stop at nothing, that is why there is nothing left in S.A. You mothers have robbed and raped this country already. We need a party that can build it up again from scratch.

      The Leaders of the country supports the police because they are also just as corrupt. The ANC and Police are proud sponsors of crime and corruption and also start killing since 1994. If you vote ANC you also support cime, corruption and murdering. If you are fed up and want change start changing your vote, if not go on support murdering, crime and corruption.......

      JuluisMalema - 2011-05-17 09:13

      Who is steeling all the money, for party's, cars and houses, all the black ANC Leaders. And where is poverty most popular? Yes in black town ships, meanwhile the black leaders and all their friends and family are well off and only looking after them selfes. Poverty increased rapedly after 1994, Apartheid controlled all of that. Apartheid was wrong i know that but get over it, it is gone now and will not happen again, revenge is also wrong. Do not stare blind at the past, look at what is happening in SA now, only a few are benifiting from the ANC. Poverty and job losses increased rapidly since the ANC ruled. Long grass along main road are a common site which was never a case when the NP ruled. Johannesburg roads and sidewalks was tidy and neat all the way under the NP, but what does the streets look like now days. Yes apartheid was wrong i know that I agree 100%, but do you think this is any better now? I do not think so, read the bible about apartheid and about what is happening now in SA there are alot of pieces in the bible about that, but you have to read with an open mind, because there is not spicific pieces about apartheid and revenge, just use an open mind and think alot.

      OVER FIVE MILLION REASONS WHY I WILL NOT BE VOTING ANC There are over five million reasons why I will not be voting for the African National Congress (ANC) in the upcoming elections on 18 May 2011: 1. Over one million babies have been killed by abortion in South Africa - officially, legally, often with tax payers' money - since the ANC legalized abortion-on-demand, 1 February 1997. "Deliver those who are drawn toward death. And hold back those stumbling to the slaughter." Proverbs 24:11 2. Over 500,000 people have been murdered in South Africa since 1994 - under the ANC government - yet the ANC has steadfastly refused to consider re-instating the death penalty for murder. Nor have they been willing to put the matter to a referendum. "Bloodshed pollutes the land and atonement cannot be made for the land on which blood has been shed, except by the blood of the one who shed it." Numbers 35:33 3. Over one million women and children have been raped in the 17 years of ANC rule (and that is just using the reported rape statistics) - while pornography has been legalised. Reportedly, less than 7% of reported rapes result in convictions. "Why do people commit crimes so readily? Because crime is not punished quickly enough." Ecclesiastes 8:11 4. The ANC is soft on the criminals and hard on the victims of crime. Rather than fight crime effectively, the ANC have worked to disarm the potential victims of crime, denying firearm licenses to tens of thousands of law abiding citizens, and claiming that self-defence is not a legitimate reason for owning a firearm! Rather than support community initiatives to fight crime, the ANC have frustrated communities by demanding that security barriers be removed from crime-afflicted suburbs. "Stop doing wrong, learn to do right! Seek justice." Isaiah 1:16-17 5. The ANC's Ministry of Education has evidenced a generally hostile attitude to Christianity, insensitivity to the concerns of parents and prejudice against the Bible. Kadar Asmal's anti-Christian policies and the unworkable Outcomes Based Education curriculum 2005, dumbed-down education and turned government schools into recruitment centres for radical homosexual groups. "My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge." Hosea 4:6 6. The ANC's Affirmative Action, Black Economic Empowerment and blind support for Mugabe's racist and tyrannical policies have chased away investors and cost the South African economy millions of jobs. According to the JSE, the net worth of South Africa over the first 10 years of ANC rule shrunk by over 30%. And the Rand under the ANC has plummeted from R2 to the US dollar to R7 to $1. "Do not use dishonest standards...Use honest scales and honest weights...I am the Lord your God." Leviticus 19:35-36 7. Rates and taxes are higher and government services are lower. Despite increased rates and taxes the filthy, litter strewn, graffiti-vandalised communities testify to the incompetence of government. "You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting..." Daniel 5:27 8. Corruption has flourished under the ANC to such an extent that the ANC is being referred to in the streets as the Abortion, Nepotism and Corruption party. "They claim to know God but by their actions they deny Him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good." Titus 1:16 9. The endless propaganda and pornographic programmes on state TV - which is supported by compulsory "licences". "Who will rise up for Me against the wicked? Who will take a stand for Me against evildoers?" Psalm 94:16 10. The arrogance of so many in the ANC and the arbitrary manner in which they ride roughshod over the concerns and freedoms of others - such as the Minister of Health refusing to meet over a thousand concerned doctors; and how their ICASA has attempted to close down many Christian and community radio stations in South Africa. "Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people." Proverbs 14:34 The Bible instructs us to "select capable men from all the people - men who fear God, trustworthy men who hate dishonest gain - and appoint them as officials..." Exodus 18:21 Evidently ANC candidates fail to qualify on Biblical grounds. Mobilise Your Congregation to Think Before They Ink! The South African Biblical Issues Voters' Guide aims to inform Christians about the different political parties' track record and policies on pro-life, pro-family, and free enterprise issues.

      That's why it's important to check that your Ballot is stamped on the back.. if it's not.. ask for another one.. otherwise your vote does not get counted... true story

      Trouble is when the anc get desperate they could get dangerous. We must take that chance. Viva DA! Vote DA! Please, please, all you supporters of those small parties, you will make a big difference if you vote DA. Get 0.5% and you have wasted your vote. This is a make or break election! Vote DA!

      @ World Traveller - I am not going to vote for a party just because it is stronger... I don't care who wins, I just want to see a change in the end-result, that will already be a TRUE SIGN OF CHANGE. If not, it's outa here... I don't care for the power struggle - Power struggles belongs to the weak, and the ones who believe they are weak... I will cast my vote based on the lesser of evil of my personal principles!

      Jacques Jones - 2011-05-17 08:36

      @wolraad agreed, this whole thing of dont waste your vote on a insignificant party is a load of crap. the whole point of a democracy is to make your voice heard even if you are a political party of one.

      Larro - 2011-05-18 05:24

      I am afraid so 'One man, One Vote - ONCE' the ANC will never hand over power. It's not who votes for which party, it's who counts the votes that matters. Look at GW Bush and Florida if you do not agree - and that's a first world country, imagine the shenanigans that will go on in SA!

    What an appallingly written report. What does a snapshot like this tell us? Absolutely nothing. What were the numbers in 2009? And before that? Whose support is increasing and by how much? At least give a link to the full report. Thank goodness electrons are recyclable because this is a waste of energy.

      World Traveler - 2011-05-16 21:46

      It tells you that the anc support is waning.

      Yes, the headline tells us that, but the numbers don't. Did you leave the "k" out of the last word?

  • Jacques Otto - 2011-05-16 20:30

    How can you be employed writing articles and have an editor sign it off when the figures only add up to 81.8%. You should before you publish ask Markinor what happened to the other 18.2% of the voters. Pathetic!

      Nico - 2011-05-16 20:47

      ...the other 16.6%.... Maybe they also made a calculation mistake....

      Wolraad Woltemade - 2011-05-16 21:54

      The other 18% is to protect themselves for a margin of error - Then they can claim the gift of prophecy, only because they left 18% blank, and wait for the "open space" to fill itself in, because they do not know.

      Jason - 2011-05-16 22:27

It is sickening.They are so sure of their invulnerability that they don’t even feel that they have to explain their misdeeds "quick Example Zuma never wanna disclose his relationships and business dealings with the Gupta's who offered his son n nephew billions of rands for kick backs. Our Government believe that their needs are above the rest of poor South Africans and they are more important therefore they deserve whatever they want or need. Where’s the transparency and accountability that the President Zuma promised for his administration? With all of the pain that the average South Africa is experiencing how could South African leadership be so irresponsible and steal from it's people?Corruption is destroying this country. The simple answer… they don’t care about the pain as long as it isn’t there own!

The arrogance of so many in the ANC and the arbitrary manner in which they ride roughshod over the concerns and freedoms of others - such as the Minister of Health refusing to meet over a thousand concerned doctors; and how their ICASA has attempted to close down many Christian and community radio stations in South Africa. "Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people." Proverbs 14:34 The Bible instructs us to "select capable men from all the people - men who fear God, trustworthy men who hate dishonest gain - and appoint them as officials..." Exodus 18:21 Evidently ANC candidates fail to qualify on Biblical grounds. Mobilise Your Congregation to Think Before They Ink! The South African Biblical Issues Voters' Guide aims to inform Christians about the different political parties' track record and policies on pro-life, pro-family, and free enterprise issues.

    I wonder how many of the 56% are voting for the ANC because Jacob said their ancestors would come back to haunt them! Don't laugh! Watch the rural areas where superstition reigns - like his homeland!!

    ask yourself this question, why do so many people still support the mighty ANC? even though so much is done to damage their reputation!

      ChangeisGood. I have, and the only conclusion i can come up with is that the ANC's grip on power is faultering and it will take a few more elections for us to kick them out, but out they will. Be patient.

    That's like farting and hoping you don't have a follow through. Waning but strong?

    That is actually a big drop in ANC support compared to the previous IPSOS Markinor study where 67 % of the respondents claimed to support the ruling party.

    My prayer for South Africa is that the ANC go the same route as the NP/NNP who at one stage seemed invincible and untouchable but gradually started dwindling until they disappeared. The writing is on the wall for the ANC with poor service delivery, incompetent management and admin of government departments, once proud hospitals now health risk relics, roads full of potholes, racist hate speech songs like "kill the farmer kill the boer" by leaders and condoned by the ANC as party. Have you seen one news clip on TV where happy enthusiastic white faces appeared with Zuma and other leaders during election vote canvasing? -- No you have not. Have you seen happy enthusiastic black, coloured and other other groupings with Zille at similar election vote canvasing? Yes every one. Was Zuma seen in so called white areas? No! Did Zille visit and mingle with people in the townships filthy because of ANC neglect? Yes, too many times to count. Wake up my South African brothers and sisters of all colours, cultures and religions, The ANC is not the party where we all can feel at home; the DA has proved itself as a party where we all can feel at home and work together

    I would not pay too much serious attention to the results of any surveys undertaken by this crowd. The ANC are in for a massive shock as from today !!!

  • Craig44 - 2011-05-18 11:12

    So that means that 56.6% of the SA population are totally gullible. Now that is a scary thought!!!!
