The polling firm says the ODM leader would garner 9.3 million votes and Ruto 8.4 million votes.

“We conducted the poll between May 27 and May 29, and had 9,000 interviews carried out in all the 47 counties. It also said 290 constituencies were covered with a margin of + or – 1,” Infotrak Research CEO Angela Ambitho told journalists.
