IRR Post-Election Poll Analysis - media statement by Gareth van Onselen, IRR Head of Politics and Governance

12 May 2019 - The IRR’s polls helped accurately identify some important trends (the ANC’s decline, the DA’s stagnation, the EFF’s growth, the knife-edge situation in Gauteng and the fight to death between the ANC and the EFF for an ever-vacillating 5% of alienated ANC voters). These were supplemented by a range of other indicators: voter attitudes to service delivery, a tax revolt, leader favourability, coalition preferences and the biggest issues.
