Tunza Coalition presidential contender Abduba Dida is third with 0.3 per cent of the votes, while Third Way Alliance presidential contestant Ekuru Aukot would garner 0.1 per cent of the votes.
Only 2 per cent of the sampled voters were undecided, the Infotrak poll shows.
“We only spoke to registered voters and those who clearly stated that they intend to vote,” said Angela Ambitho.
5, 000 voters were interviewed during the poll.
“It is clear that only Raila Odinga or Uhuru Kenyatta can win in the presidential race. The 2 per cent undecided voters will handle the tie. The 2 per cent can go either way and determine the outcome. Either Raila Odinga or Uhuru Kenyatta will clinch the presidency,” said Ms Ambitho.
