  4. Infotrack is quite off. In All the opinion polls conducted in Kenya only Infotrack gives a Raila Lead. fishy business.

  5. Jubilee should now convince 3% + 1 of the undecided so as to attain 50% +1 by close of business Tuesday. Going by the opinion polls no candidate will hit the 10M mark as alleged by NASA. On Average UHURU ipsos47%+ star47% +Infotrack48% = 47% of 19M= 8.93M. RAILA Ipsos44% + Star46% + Infotrack49% =46.3% of 19M= 8.79M. So the 10Million strong by the opposition is a fallacy.
