Election 2024: First-Time voters boosting support for Bawumia – Global InfoAnalytics


A recent poll by Global InfoAnalytics has revealed that Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) flagbearer, is gaining significant support among first-time voters. This trend shows a shift in voter sentiment, especially among younger demographics, as the 2024 election approaches.


Musah Dankwa, Executive Director of Global InfoAnalytics, shared in a media interview that the survey sampled over 7,000 respondents. The results indicated that a substantial majority of young people consider Dr. Bawumia the most suitable candidate to lead Ghana.


Dankwa noted that Dr. Bawumia’s recent nationwide campaign tour has revitalized the party and significantly boosted his popularity. He emphasized that first-time voters will be the deciding factor in the upcoming December general elections.


“If you look at the polling numbers in detail, you would see that Bawumia’s gain largely came from first-time voters. In the April poll, he [Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia] was losing by quite a bit but at the moment, he is at par with Mahama on first-time voters. That is where he drew his numbers from and they are now at 44 percent each, so what I can say is that this election will be about the vote of the young voters. Whoever is able to win the minds and hearts of first-time voters will win this election,” Dankwa explained.
