CityPress - - Front Page -

The lat­est Ipsos poll, con­ducted for news chan­nel eNCA, has pre­dicted that the ANC will lose mas­sive sup­port in three met­ros – Joburg, Tsh­wane and Nel­son Man­dela Bay – on elec­tion day on Au­gust 3.

The ANC has re­acted by ei­ther dis­miss­ing it as un­rep­re­sen­ta­tive or wel­com­ing it as a timeous re­minder for it to get its house in or­der. The polls show that the ANC could lose the Tsh­wane and Nel­son Man­dela Bay met­ros to the DA.

In Joburg, the two par­ties are tied neck-and-neck. The EFF has an av­er­age of 10% sup­port in Tsh­wane and Joburg. With seven weeks to go, much could still change. The ANC ex­pects that sup­port for it will pick up af­ter it an­nounces its may­oral can­di­dates.
