Political State of Play in South Africa's Battleground Provinces in April 2024
This report tracks the current political state of play in the South African provinces of Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and the Western Cape in April 2024. It does so via surveying 410 demographically and geographically representative registered voters in Gauteng with a provincial margin of error of 4.7%, 408 in KwaZulu-Natal with a provincial margin of error of 4.8% and 410 in the Western Cape with a provincial margin of error of 4.7%. The data in the report is not a forecast of the May 29 election result, but rather a snapshot of the likely current position. Only parties that polled near or above the margins of error are cited by name and readers must be aware that there is very limited utility to a number for a party that polls near the margin of error of a study.
