A new opinion poll carried out by an independent pollster, Global InfoAnalytics, in the Adentan constituency between 16th – 18th September 2019, with a sample size of 384 respondents shows that majority of voters think the country is heading in the wrong direction.  Approximately 90% of voters believe Ghana is heading in the wrong direction compared to 10% who think it is heading in the right direction. This is in sharp contrast to the June polls which showed approximately 60% indicating it is heading in the wrong direction, an increase of 30% in the percentage of voters who think it is heading the wrong direction.

Voters choice of President

In June 2019, our survey had the President as the only named candidate with someone else as a contender. The survey in June indicated that 33.8% of voters preferred Nana Addo as president. However, in our new tracking poll for September 2019, which included John Mahama as an alternative candidate, only 15.4% of voters in the constituency will definitely/probably vote to re-elect Nana Addo as president, representing a drop of 18.4% over the period. The survey found that 52.6% of voters will definitely/probably vote to elect John Mahama as president come December 2020. Approximately 9.6% of voters plan to vote for someone other than the two leading candidates. 11.46% of voters indicated that they will not vote whilst 10.9% of voters are undecided. The percentage of undecided voters in the new poll is significantly lower than it was in June 2019 (24.1%).
