According to a recent survey by Global Info Analytics, a staggering 76 percent of Ghanaians think their country is going in the wrong path, while only 16 percent think it is.
When compared to a poll conducted in April 2022, where 67 percent of respondents believed the country was moving in the wrong direction and only 26 percent did not, this shows a huge decline.
With only 23% of respondents approving of the way he is carrying out his duties as president and 72% disapproving (resulting in a net favorability rating of -49%) the president is further falling in the polls (April 2022, negative 40 percent).
By a margin of 69 percent to 30 percent, voters opposed using public money to construct the national cathedral.
Christians are the group that is most opposed to the change, with 72 percent of Christians opposing it compared to 65 percent of Muslims.
Voters are divided on whether the government should move forward with the Agyapa deal: 68% are against it and 24% are in favor.
The opposition is opposed by 58 percent of NPP followers, 79 percent of NDC supporters, and 71 percent of floating voters, according to party affiliations.
Voters are split 69 percent to 22 percent on the issue of whether a commission of inquiry should be established to look into claims of state capture following the controversy surrounding the Will of the late Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, AKA Sir John. Ten percent of voters are undecided.
5,490 people were included in the survey by Global Info Analytics, which had a margin of error of 1.737 percent.
The July 2022 opinion survey also indicates that John Mahama of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is taking a commanding lead in his campaign to rule the nation once more in 2025.
If elections were held today, John Mahama would now be ahead of Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia of the New Patriotic Party 58 percent to 31 percent (a 27 percent margin), with an additional 11 percent saying they would rather vote for someone else in the 2024 elections.
In a different hypothetical contest, Hon. Alan Kyeremanten, the Trade and Industry Minister and another front-runner for the NPP, is trailed by John Mahama 61 percent to 30 percent (a 31 percent margin) and a third party, which stands on 9 percent.
Dr. Bawumia’s victory over Hon. Alan Kyeremanten in the July polls resulted from the collapse of NPP support in the Northern region if Bawumia wasn’t the candidate. Mahama, who lost to Bawumia in the Northern by 88 percent to 9 percent, defeated Alan Kyeremanten by a landslide margin of 87 percent to 12 percent.
According to the poll, Hon. Alan Kwadwo Kyeremanten is continuing to lead among general voters in the campaign to become the NPP’s leader.
According to the poll, Alan received 42% of the vote, compared to 35% for Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and 11% for Hon. Kennedy Agyepong.
According to general voters, the late entry into the NPP campaign by the Member of Parliament for Assin Central looks to have turned the contest on its head as Dr. Bawumia and Hon. Kyeremanten lose support.
Hon. Kennedy Agyepong, according to the surveys, leads in Weija Gbawe, Okaikwei South, Anlo, Akim Oda, and Asene-Akroso-Manso.
John Mahama continues to hold a stable lead against Dr. Kwabena Dufour in the battle to lead the NDC, receiving support from 71 percent of voters to Dr. Kwabena Dufour’s 15%.
Hon Kojo Bonsu just manages to get 2 percent.
