Kenyans will have to brace themselves for a presidential run-off if elections were to be held today, a survey by Trends For Insights Africa has revealed.

The polls released on Monday, July 11 showed that though Raila Odinga has beaten his fiercest rival DP William Ruto again, the 50-pus one constitutional requirement has proved elusive.

Raila, who is running for the presidency for the fifth time, is leading with 42 percent support compared to Ruto who has 39 percent.

Roots Party Presidential Candidate George Wajackoyah bagged the support of 4 percent of those polled.

In the poll released on June 18, Raila had 39 percent support of those polled while Ruto had 35 percent.

Tom Wolf, the Tifa lead researcher, attributed the changes to reduction in the number of undecided voters.

The poll had a +/- 2.34 margin of error.

However, 10 percent of those polled were still undecided, 28 days to the election.

The survey conducted between June 25 to June 30 had 1533 respondents from nine regions across the country.
