Zambian Eye’s latest weekly opinion poll has indicated that opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) presidential candidate Hakainde Hichilema would beat the ruling Patriotic Front’s Edgar Lungu by a huge margin if elections were held today.
The poll, which ran on Zambian Eye’s Facebook page from December 31,2015 to January 4, 2016 and reached 4,432 people, saw the UPND leader amass 73.6% (up 4 points from last week’s 69.5) while his closest rival Lungu got 18.6% (down 4 points from last week’s 22.5%).

Nevers Mumba of the Movement for Multi-party Democracy (MMD) took the third spot at 1.1% while Elias Chipimo of the National Restoration Party (NAREP) and Peter Sinkamba of the Green Party were joint forth at 0.4% apiece. The rest of the candidates collectively got negligible votes while 5.9% of the votes were

deemed invalid.
On Sunday, Muvi Tv also released the results of their own poll, which placed Hichilema in the driving seat at 82% against Lungu’s 16%.

  4. We want to hear about the much advertised Mwebantu Media opinion polls……why are they always reluctant to release the results?

    If PF are not satisfied with the results coming out of the private media institutions, why can’t they let there mouth piece ZNBC run one and see how they will fair?

    • Yes Zambians including those of US voting in Muvi Tv, Zambian eye and Mwebantu opinion polls. Whether you like it or not your PF is in trouble at least in cyber space and on Muvi which mind you carters for the average man. If it was on DSTV then you could ignore it. Muvi TV in case you are not in Zambia is the average man’s channel of choice. So go ahead bury your head in the sand.

    • You are the Dreamer trying to convince yourself that it’s not true. How come when PF used to get the same in 2011 they were acceptable?

  10. Ignore the Opinion polls at your own nanikani …. Millennium Radio Callers’s Opinion Results were;

    HH = 79%
    EL = 21%

  11. The position on the ground is that most people who believed PF’s lies have changed mind and don’t want Pf to continue. So ignoring these opinion polls is good because on 23rd January, 2014 HH will be crowned as Zambia’s 6th president.

  12. EL’s marriage with RB is the last nail in the PF’s chances as most Zambians who supported Sata because he came out strongly exposing RB’s corruption and thefts have clearly seen that EL is a corrupt man to accept RB in his team. EL has so soon departed from the Sata vision and has entered into corrupt activities.

  14. These opinion polls are very far from the actual results on the ground. What is the basis? Do you think all voters in Zambia have access to internet? Tongas are the ones busy on internet as an opposition. PF are not interested they are ruling and are continuing even beyond 2016.
    UPND and TRIBAL politics
    Iam reading from outside Zambia on online media I guess sponsored by UPND that South Rainbow party, south chiefs, South MMD, South whatever endorse HH. I haven’t read anywhere to say North rainbow party, North chiefs, North MMD, North whatever endorse EL. Iam not surprised. UPND and the tonga dynasty are in alliance and you will never find a tonga endorsing EL apart from the ones bred on copperbelt who are enlightened. So who is practising tribal politics? UPND have gone to the North lying to potential voters using cclones such as Mutati to fool people there that they are not tribal. Who are they fooling? No wonder Chitika bluntly told the northerners not to be fooled by voting a tonga. She was right. Its the reason a tonga will never rule Zambia since they are the minority and democracy is a game of numbers. Until tongas demonstrate this Zambia will always be ruled by enlighted tribes from other provinces except Tonga. This is sad. But UpND are doing this to their detriment. So PF and EL already have bagged this one with almost 70% vote as the voting pattern will be regional as has always been. Too bad UPND. Blame no one but yourselves. Ati wako ni wako.

    • Wisdom nashako ubufi nolupato. We the real Bembas we hate tribalism talks. We believe in supporting any successful individual. HH and upnd are on the right track. We are supporting them here in bembaland. We have no problem supporting them. The party is for all Zambians and it belongs to us all. It is free to join upnd. Anybody can join now. You are just desperate hidding under tribe. You are a big guy shivering out of fear of losing. HH akuchita kuyipa.
      As Zambians we are ready to usher in state house hh. We are tired of lies and poverty. We want to try hh. 90 days lies and no vision now is disasterous and suicidal to any level headed citizen.
      Ulemona kwati twalisekelamo imitengo yabunga nefintu fyonse? Wisdon fool to hell with your evil desires. Leka hh ateke. He is our hope in hell.

    • The tribal one is you who chooses to be selective in what you read. First and foremost Lungu is not bemba but from eastern. He has received endorsement from mpezeni you are quiet, RB you you are quiet, siliya you are quiet, muhabi lungu you are quiet what are you talking about? HH has recived endorsements accross the board you can’t see but waited for endorsements from southern province for you to yap. who is tribal here HH whi embresses all or who reasons on tribal lines?
