A CREDIBLE, free and fair election is going to be an outright victory for MDC alliance leader Nelson Chamisa, as indicated by all credible opinion polls. Chamisa will garner no less than 65% of the vote as the momentum for real change and transformation grips the nation.

The nation is ready to behold the new and enjoy change that delivers. Without doubt, the MDC alliance has become a household name, dominating the discourse of foes and friends alike, all age groups, cutting across different tribes and races, blaring the fictitious divide between the rural and urban. Change has become the national mantra and a universal clarion call by all citizens, including those in Zanu PF.
As a presidential candidate, he has brought a fresh perspective to campaigning, daring Zimbabweans to dream again. He has exuded a combination of clarity of vision, unrivalled charisma, incredible hard work, undisputed policy clarity, great intellect and great skills. Chamisa has impeccable international posture and stature through unparalleled skills in statesmanship, brinksmanship and diplomacy.
In just over four months, Chamisa, together with the people of Zimbabwe, has changed this country’s political landscape, including increasing the electoral fortunes for the MDC Alliance.
As we enter the last stretch in this campaign, Chamisa is enjoying an upsurge in support, levels of trust, policy clarity and leadership grandeur. He has unpacked a bankable and credible message on job creation, good governance, social service delivery, robust and modern infrastructure for the country and provided credible answers to fundamental national questions. These include:
Poor services in health, education and welfare
State party conflation
This country has had so much about an earthquake, now we see that a political one will take place on July 30. This, according to polls, is not negotiable. It is hot under the bridge. We are now certain, more than ever, before an election, that a landslide victory is no longer in doubt.
Various credible polls, including the Afro Barometer, show that:
Chamisa will win the forthcoming election comfortably, with double digit margins over the Zanu PF candidate. Given that, only opposition supporters are likely to refuse to state their voting intentions, the 20% that refused to state their voting intentions are his voters. As such, nearly all these voters are in Chamisa’s column, meaning that his weighted total is 57% as a minimum. Our projections show that he will win by 65% of the vote.
The majority of Zimbabweans trust Chamisa over any politician in this country or public figure in political leadership.
Chamisa is breaking world records in terms of political momentum, within months he has increased his poll number by over 15%. These rates have not been achieved by any politician in the world.
Chamisa’s policies are favoured and believed by a majority of Zimbabweans.
Chamisa brings integrity to Zimbabwean politics
Chamisa is trusted to create more jobs for the people of Zimbabwe and this by a 10 points margin. Looking at this number and the fact that most Zimbabweans want jobs, it is clear that most Zimbabweans will vote for someone who will create jobs.
Given these facts, there is one conclusion to be made of the current polling. It shows that Chamisa will be elected as the Head of State and government for Zimbabwe on July 30, 2018. The polls show that there will be no rerun as an outright victory is certain.
Chamisa has introduced a fresh and new kind of politics, which is anchored on impeccable Statesmanship, great ideas, smart policies, building credibility and exemplary leadership. Clearly the people of Zimbabwe have welcomed the new and are going to usher a new era for Zimbabwe’s history. Now Zimbabweans can be confident that the future of this country will be secured on July 30. They can trust that fellow Zimbabweans are working for a better country.
Chamisa thanks Zimbabweans for both their exceptionalism and determination to make our country great again.
Behold the new, change that delivers.
