Zuma still favoured, poll shows

2012-06-08 22:10

Johannesburg - Sixty percent of eligible voters believe President Jacob Zuma was performing his duties well, according to a poll released on Friday.

The poll, conducted by research company Ipsos, asked 3 565 people to evaluate the performance of the president, deputy president, national government, municipalities, and the leader of the opposition.

Of those polled, 60% indicated Zuma was performing well. This figure remains almost unchanged from the previous Ipsos poll conducted at the end of last year, where Zuma received 61%.

Zuma received 66% in May 2011.

Over a third of respondents, 36%, felt Zuma was not performing well.

Nearly three-quarters of African National Congress supporters, 73%, believed Zuma was doing a good job while only 38% of Democratic Alliance supporters held the same opinion.

Zuma received a favourability rating of 6.06 out of 10, not indicative of his performance but rather how he was perceived by respondents.

Over half, 58%, of respondents believed Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe was doing a good job. Twenty-nine percent disagreed and 13% were undecided.

Helen Zille was described as performing her duties well by 42% of respondents. This figure shifted between DA supporters, 80%, and ANC supporters, 35%.

Zille received a favourability rating of 4.08 out of 10.

The poll found for the first time since 1994 that national government, at 61%, was perceived to be doing a better job than any of its leaders.

A third, 34%, felt national government was not doing a good job.

Only 45% of respondents thought municipalities were performing their duties well, the lowest score, versus 51 percent against.

Both ANC (48%) and DA supporters (49%) showed similar numbers regarding the poor performance of municipalities.

"It could be expected that their scores [municipalities] would be lower, since they affect lives directly," said Ipsos public affairs director Mari Harris.

The poll was conducted between 13 April and 18 May.

    3565 people equates to less than 0.01% of the total!!

      Alexander - 2012-06-08 23:14

      3565 people. So they only polled his family members?

      brenton.tyrrell - 2012-06-08 23:36

      Lies, lies, lies and statistics. The man is a clown and you don't need polls to confirm it. It's as blatant as a slap in the face with a codfish.

      Julie - 2012-06-09 07:23

      And I would say 3564 of those people were ANC and ANCYL stalwarts who receive kickbacks and free Zuma T-shirts, while the 1 was anti-Zuma... probably a pale-male who is battling to find work to provide for his family, or a (white) pensioner who has to try and eke out a living on the "princely" sum of around R500 p.m. ...

      kim.buren - 2012-06-09 07:52

      So this is how a survey is done !! Ipsos, you should be ashamed of yourselves. You have just made yourselves look real chops.

      Charles-Bronson - 2012-06-09 08:33

      This is SA most useless corrupted divided president this country ever had!. Useless shower head!!

      Barend - 2012-06-09 08:53

      They should do this pole with taxpayers only. I predict a 100% vote of no confidence. It's time for a level headed businessman to run SA - not one with struggle credentials but one with experience.

      abrie.burger - 2012-06-09 09:37

      @bambanani mdzimba. I don't hate Zuma. I really hate the ANC because they are misleading the uneducated people of the country and streering this country into the ground. As for Zuma, I just think he is totally useless. PS: Who brought up race? You did. You are the racist.

      We need to implement a Vote or Die campaign in this country for the next elections. We need to make a change or we will be stuck in this insufferable situation for years to come. The youth have given up, we have this sense of indifference and don't care to make a difference. We need to step it up. I would rather have people loving or hating the present regime rather than having a sense of indifference. Indifference lacks passion and ambition. We need to change it our we can kiss this beautiful and prosperous country goodbye!

      Mogalefi - 2012-06-09 13:29

      The poll doesn't show any favour for zuma but a fight against white supremacy.

      Honey - 2012-06-09 19:19

      OMG News24! What a pile of absolutely propagandist rubbish! Where did you get these stats? Oh yes, I see, from IPSOS/Markinor who on their very own website state: " As business partner of numerous parastatals and government departments, Ipsos Markinor is geared towards black economic empowerment." Well, as a Government (cANCer lead) Partner, no wonder you try to kick the sith into the DA with this totally biased ( and poorly edited, yet again) "Report"! LMFAO many times!

      Adrian - 2012-06-09 19:47

      Comeon! News24 keeps publishing articles of supposed Polls and Stats, to create some form of nonsense sensation where the data is completely non-reflective and statistically insignificant. If you know even a tiny amount of stats you will know this is a bunch of dribble. News24, if you want to report on these polls, please source the study so that we can review the data. This is the same as when they reported 50% of males in south africa have raped a woman. If I go collect my data from a prison then more than likely I would find that true, but is has no significance on the population. Please remove this idiotic article.

    There we go. Conclusive proof that 60% of the voters are permanently drunk

      Clive - 2012-06-09 09:17

      Anthony, which planet are you living on? "Able, hard working, honest ministers"? I think you are making such bizarre statements just to stir the pot. No intelligent person can possibly believe that you really believe such nonsense. "Inept, greedy and corrupt" would be a more apt description. And if you have to resort to comparing them with the Nats, it shows you have no substantive argument to make. I do agree with you, however, that John's comment about being permanently drunk is insulting and uncalled for.

      onke.tshaka - 2012-06-09 10:31

      John, dear john...you're just a retard.

      dawood.timol - 2012-06-09 12:27

      @ CliveK with all due respect,not all ANC politicians are corrupt.You hear on a daily basis the same hammer and thong on the mainstream(racist) media a few names that are involved with whatever crimes,but the real intent is to taint the entire ANC and black population.The DA and many other parties are intent on brainwashing much of the population(especially DA supporters) that their wild accusations of the entire ANC or non whites in general are corrupt.YES,there are officials in the ANC who are thieving the nation of billions.We do need the ANC to stand up and make sure these corrupt officials are tried and given the harshest sentences,hence setting an example to all public officials(DA,ANC & others).The way to go is the AFRICAN SPRING or a similiar protest group as the OWS.There are many ANC supporters that are sick of the corruption by a few politicians and i'm positive they are prepared to "hit the streets."

      AnthonyfromAfrica - 2012-06-09 14:37

      CliveK, Sorry I was going to reply, but my comment ,,dissapeared,, !! News24, has got some very strange editors......maybe they are new to the job!!!

  • Elizabeth Venter - 2012-06-08 22:36

    really? 3565 ppl? and u feel that these results represent the country when it hardly makes up 1% of the population? get real! majority of us wanna string zuma and his cronies up by the nuts, we don't favor them at all! and those who do, well, wake up is all i have to say!

      Pat's comment is brainless, but I don't know where Anthony gets the idea from that Winnie and Julius are serious alternatives. Give me Sexwale or Motlanthe any day.

      AnthonyfromAfrica - 2012-06-09 19:41

      CliveK, No, Julius Malema and Winnie Mandela will never be president, but if Jacob Zuma is out, there is a big chance Tokyo Sexwale will become our new President, and for SURE, than Julius Malema and Winnie Mandela will have high posts in his government !!

He doesn't have an idea how to run an organisation nor a country...\r\n\r\n\r\nBut 60% of South Africans also known as IDIOTs backs him. Its a real sad day. How stupid can one be?

    why was i not asked to participate in this survey? give us a breakdown of population makeup? i always thought a politition was a servant of the voting public. Government officials truely believe that the voting public are their servants. Why are we having popularity polls, they should be working for thr betterment of the nation. Polititions should be banned, and all government employees accountable for their actions, and where necessary fired for incompetence. Oops sorry, nobody can be fired in South Africa its against the law. Wake up Mr Zuma you are not Presidential material.

    South africa get used to it, since you cried your lungs out for democracy, while majority rule ANC will always be in power till another black party is able to fight like DA, since more than 60percent are not on news24 Zuma will always be favoured. Believe me that is the truth God knows from heaven, if you don't wanna hear that truth get out and swear everybody you meet on the road or take that pistol put in your forehead pull the trigger and see if the truth will run away

    Apparently over 90 percent of the people in South Africa want the death penalty. 70 percent do not want toll roads in Gauteng. Over 80 percent think that crime is rampant. And yet we still want the same leader, who is directly involved in opposing the death penalty, pushing for implementation of the tolls and is failing to combat crime (even amongst his own party). This poll shows the stupidity of the South African public, not the popularity of the president.

      Muffin_man_can - 2012-06-09 09:11

      At wich spaza shop did you buy your degrees? Your education is very well hidden if it does exist at all

      gregory.jurgens - 2012-06-09 09:22

      @ Fikile . I see now why you where nominated for the survey. How many government contracts do U have. Bet ur children resemble Jacob.

      fikile.makhaya - 2012-06-09 09:27

      Muffin or whateva ur name is, ur level of thinkin reveals more abt ur imbecile tendencies. Ur comments are not evn worth replyin 2 cos it looks like evry Black who's affluent is as a result of crime. Ur racist mind don't belong in ths country.

      Andrew - 2012-06-09 09:30

      Like the black owned company that had to close their doors on Wednesday due to government not paying them R80 million. Good luck with that

      Andrew - 2012-06-09 10:09

      Fikile. You mustn't lie. I've done a profile on you and you're currently looking for work.

      fikile.makhaya - 2012-06-09 10:14

      N so u actually believe fb?!!! Smh

      Andrew - 2012-06-09 10:20

      Do I believe what you put on the net yourself. Yes. Not just Facebook. There's no listed company under your name.

      Andrew - 2012-06-09 10:36

      Fikile. Please give your company names so that I can let everyone know how prosperous you are. And if you're going to try being clever, try spelling words correctly. I hope your CV isn't written like that

      fikile.makhaya - 2012-06-09 10:53

      N satisfy ur likes,,,,,, Suit urself n beliv what u want 2!

      Andrew - 2012-06-09 10:59

      You have chance to prove me wrong. You can't so you back down. No wonder you support the ANC, clearly they've taught you to lie as much as them. But clearly, you're lying to yourself the most.

      Jacqui - 2012-06-09 16:12

      He has two degrees and two companies. he reads comics nightly and imagine being something. Enough attention to this fool.

  • Chris - 2012-06-09 09:14

  • Philip Buys - 2012-06-09 09:22

    Good for you. You get what you vote for. So tough up and do not complain about service delivery, bribery, lawlessness fat cats and the gravy train.

  • Andrew - 2012-06-09 09:27

    Here's a joke. What's more stupid than the ANC? The ANC supporters. It's not funny but it is a joke

  • masta.pilusa - 2012-06-09 09:39

    No one is perfect,so who ar u expecting perfection.Zuma ma gud president.

  • themba.tshehla - 2012-06-09 09:50

      Michael Varikas - 2012-06-09 10:05

      Lindiwe Mazibuko my black friend. She has a full brain not the brain of an elephant.

      Muffin_man_can - 2012-06-09 10:22

      Mbeki's brother please! We need someone not controlled by the anc as muppet zuma.

      fikile.makhaya - 2012-06-09 10:34

      Yea well, Y'all r ckufed cos there's onli 1 ruling parte n it will decide not even based on surveys as 2 who mst lead!! As 4 th Tea Gal n Mbeki, they R non issues since they dnt evn stand a chance,,,,

      Muffin_man_can - 2012-06-09 10:58

      Haha typical narrow minded talk as can be expected from an anc 'comrade'. The anc will be voted out of power within the coming 3 national elections, then we can start rebuilding what you messed up. You are in for a big surprize fikile

      Andrew - 2012-06-09 11:12

      Another amazingly intelligent comment from my new best friend fikile. I see you also parrot everything malema and the ANC say. Brainwashed? Anyway, I'm having fun laughing at you today. You're ridiculous

      Andrew - 2012-06-09 11:23

      Any party right now

      Clive - 2012-06-09 11:46

      Mamphela Ramphele - finish and klaar.

      Jacqui - 2012-06-09 16:15

      Themba well yes actually we do know who should be our next leader. It may surprise you but colour isn't at the top of our list. Experience and honesty is.

  • lerato.kay.3 - 2012-06-09 09:53

    Zille received a favourability rating of 4.08 out of 10. What??? Is 40.8% favourable?? Another for Zuma

      Jacqui - 2012-06-09 16:17

      Lerato, people favouring Zille wasn't ask. Don't remark about things you don't understand.

  • Bongane - 2012-06-09 10:03

    Voters are public so it means possibilities of Zuma 2 b a presidnt again is high with 60%, remember majority rules

      Andrew - 2012-06-09 11:14

      Sad hey?

      njdejager - 2012-06-09 22:44

      Majority rules and majority also breaks down the country in the process. Now thats sad hey!

  • Kekeletso.nax - 2012-06-09 10:05

    This is what happens when you interview people in a bar after happy hour.

      Leboela Pitch Lediha - 2012-06-09 10:25

      njdejager - 2012-06-09 22:46
