United Democratic Alliance (UDA) Chairman Johnson Muthama has disputed an Opinion poll showing that Deputy President William Ruto will defeat ODM leader Raila Odinga in all provinces except Nyanza.
While reacted to the poll conducted by a local media house, Muthama termed it fake, and went on to claim that the DP controls about 65% of the total votes in the country.
He also claimed that the poll was meant to peddle a defeatist notion, but that has terribly failed.
"Fake polls being peddled around to shape a Defeatist Narrative about @Williamsruto is dead on arrival. It's without doubt that the Deputy President commands 65% of votes in this Country. Its only Nyanza (save Migori County) he will garner less votes. Take that to the bank," Muthama said.
The daily had noted that the former Prime Minister was gaining ground while DP Ruto had slightly dropped.

Another poll released by TIFA Research on Friday said DP Ruto still leads in the 2022 presidential race but ODM leader Raila Odinga has gained significantly since June.
In the poll, the second in command leads the 2022 race with 38% followed by Mr. Odinga at 23%.
The poll also said majority of Kenyans believe that the country is headed in the wrong direction at 59% while only 19% believe the country is headed the right direction.
