President Kibaki, Vice-President Kalonzo Musyoka and Finance minister Uhuru Kenyatta are among top leaders facing the daunting task of whipping their supporters to endorse the proposed new constitution as campaigns for the 14.5 million votes kicks off. The President and his VP have the highest number of supporters who have not decided whether to reject or approve the document even as the battle for numbers intensifies ahead of the vote in less than two months. An analysis of the Synovate Poll released on Friday exposed shock statistics that as many as half of the supporters of political leaders championing the Yes campaigns will actually either reject the proposed constitution, were undecided or will simply stay away from the polling booths on voting day. It also showed that three regions – Central, Eastern and Rift Valley – were key contributors of people who plan to reject the constitution, effectively sending pointers to areas where campaigners should concentrate on to fill their voter baskets. Synovate managing director George Waititu in an interview on Saturday said the survey figures highlighted the big battle ahead for the votes at stake in the August 4 referendum. “There is no side that should say it is home and dry at this point,” said Mr Waititu. “A lot of work needs to be done since the ground could swing either way.” The survey showed there was a large undecided population of about 2.5 million people and an estimated 580,000 voters who plan not to cast their ballots. Mr Waititu said intense campaigns could significantly change the landscape in favour of either side.
