A survey conducted last month by the Mass Public Opinion Institute of Zimbabwe showed the Movement for Democratic Change formation of Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai with an edge over ZANU PF in public support.
The Institute said it interviewed 1,062 people nationwide and found 32 percent of them backing the Tsvangirai M-D-C, while 18 percent voiced support for ZANU PF.
The reformed ZAPU party garnered 2 percent.
The survey found that up to 40 percent of those interviewed might not vote at all.
Political analyst George Mkhwanazi cautioned that such surveys don’t necessarily reflect what voters are actually thinking.
