Titled "National Opinion Poll Governance & Elections January 18th, 2023 Report Summary," the findings further showed that 59% of the people sampled for the poll said NPP cannot win the next election or "Break the 8", as the party calls its drive to stay in power beyond eight years.

Analysts predict NPP could lose 2024 election

Meanwhile, reported in an earlier article that analysts have painted a grim picture about the fortunes of the NPP in the next general elections in 2024.

Dr Theo Acheampong and Dr Kwame Asah-Asante say a lot of the things that have happened under the current administration could hurt the NPP's chances in 2024.

They believe the political cost of the widely condemned Domestic Debt Exchange programme may prove too much for the party's quest to "Break the 8".
