Corruption record will influence Ghanaian voter choice in December. This has been revealed by the second wave of the Ghana Election Poll which ran online from July 1 to August 1, 2020, via the renowned market research firm MSI-ACI.
According to the poll, corruption is the most important factor that many Ghanaians will consider in deciding who to vote for on December 7, 2020.
Out of the weighted sample of 2,055, 30% of respondents chose corruption as the main factor that will determine their vote, while 28% selected the economy and 25% selected fulfillment of campaign promises as what will influence the choice they will make on the ballot.
Other important factors that would be on the minds of voters on December 7 are Free SHS (10%) and the Government’s handling of the Coronavirus pandemic (5%). 2% of the respondents expressed no interest at all in the possible factors that will influence their vote decision.
In an almost equal measure, corruption, the economy, and fulfillment of campaign promises, are the top three most important factors that would be on the minds of both males and females as they vote on December 7. For 15 to 19 year-olds, the most important factor that would determine their vote is the economy and Free SHS, while for 20 to 24 year-olds, the most important factor that would determine their vote is government’s handling of the Coronavirus pandemic.
