The survey in a statement released by oneÂ Jideofor Adibe, wasÂ based on 9000 likely voters in the state, and was conducted on December 23-26, 2009 by a combination of telephone calls and direct interviews cutting across different social classes and spread out across the 21 local government areas of the State.
According to the poll, â€œThe total support for candidates outside the above seven is extremely small. We have used â€˜Othersâ€™ to capture this support in relevant instances
The â€œUndecidedâ€ are those who said they had not made up their minds on which candidate to support. The percentage of this group is again very small, confirming beliefs that people from the state tend to hold and express strong opinionsâ€
