The Economic Freedom Fighters also increased its support by one percentage point to 12 percent.


 

However, it is the Democratic Alliance (DA) that remains the frontrunner with 39 percent of support, although they have lost three percentage points from last week&39;s results.

 

The ANC&39;s good gains have also extended to positive party sentiment, where they increased by one percentage point to 31 percent.

The EFF also increased in positive sentiment to 27 percent and remained the same on negative party sentiment.

Week five of the eNCA polls asked respondents to rate which parties were the best to deal with important service delivery and social challenges.

The data reveals a perception of sentiment towards different political parties and is not a prediction of results ahead of the elections.

Mmusi Maimane&39;s DA came out top as the best party to deal with service delivery and social challenges.


 

The ANC was only rated higher than the DA in one category in Tshwane for being the best party to organise youth entertainment.

The EFF also scored high in this category.

* Important points to consider about this poll:

A total of 2,500 panel members were recruited and every week 1,500 of them are contacted for a 5-minute telephonic interview. The results are representative of the opinions in each metropolitan area and are weighted and projected to reflect the views of the eligible voters in each area.

These results should be evaluated within the margin of error determined by sample size, response rate and sampling methodology used.

The margin of error for the results of the city of Johannesburg is between 1.2 percent and 2.8 percent; for the City of Tshwane it is between 1.6 percent and 3.7 percent and for Nelson Mandela Bay between 2.5 percent and 5.7 percent.
