Political Poll Reveals Potential Running Mate for President Ruto in 2027 and Public Opinion on Deputy Gachagua’s Future

Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki has been identified as the most likely running mate for President William Ruto should Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua be replaced in 2027.

In a poll conducted by Politrack Africa, Kindiki emerged as the favored candidate with a score of 50.2 percent.

Kindiki was notably among the leading contenders for the running mate position in the 2022 General Election.

Kiharu Member of Parliament Ndindi Nyoro was ranked as the second-best candidate to replace Gachagua, with a score of 19.7 percent.

Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi emerged as the third best option for Ruto with 10.2 percent.

Also ranked were National Assembly Leader of Majority Kimani Ichung’wah (8.1 percent) and Speaker Moses Wetangula (7.1 percent).

Prospects of Gachagua as President

The poll also sought to know whether Gachagua would be successful should he run for the presidency in 2027.

82 percent of the respondents revealed that it would be very unlikely for him to succeed with 2 percent indicating that he would likely win.

On the other hand, the poll also revealed that the fallout between Gachagua and Ruto would dent the support for the President’s party in the Mt Kenya region.

53 percent of respondents noted that the fallout would affect UDA’s popularity in the vote-rich region. 41 percent of the respondents held a contrary view with the remaining 6 percent indicating that they were not sure.

The recent fallout between the President and his deputy has been attributed to the push for Mt Kenya unity and the one-man one-shilling campaign by Gachagua.

Ruto and his allies have termed the push as tribal agenda while Gachagua has maintained that he is only doing what the people want
