Johannesburg is the only metro where respondents rated the ANC better than the Democratic Alliance (DA) at solving some service delivery and social challenges.

In the other two metros the DA scored the highest on all questions.

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.

ANC support in this metro has also increased to 31 percent however more respondents (36 percent) still say they will vote for the DA.

 

Support for the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) dropped slightly to 10 percent.

Respondents who said they don&39;t know who they will vote for or who refused to answer, remained the same as last week at 16 percent.

On positive party sentiment, the DA remains steady at 53 percent while the ANC and EFF dropped by two percentage points each.

The EFF scored highly in being the best party to organise youth entertainment and deal with racism.


* 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.
