The poll found that 9% of voters said that they will be voting for EFF.
While many South Africans who took part in the poll knew exactly where they will be putting their mark on the ballot sheet, a whole 13% said that they would either not vote, not vote for a current party or were unsure of who to vote for, eNCA reported.
The chair of the Department of Political Sciences, College of Human Sciences at UNISA, Kealeboga Maphunye, commented that South African voters are more aware than ever of what is happening in the country.
