A Home Language Breakdown of Party Political Support in South Africa

This report investigates political party support in South Africa across different home language groups. It does so via two different charts. The first chart measures what share of people in a particular home language group vote for a particular political party. The second chart measures what share of the support of a particular political party comes from a particular home language group. The data in the report is drawn from a survey of 7 196 demographically and geographically representative registered voters conducted in April and May 2024. That survey had a margin of error of 2%.
