Musa Dankwah, the Executive Director at Global Info Analytics, told YEN.com.gh that this survey provided valuable insights ahead of the 2024 polls.
"If we understand what is going on in the sample Zongo areas, then we can extrapolate that understanding to cover similar demographic of voters anywhere in the country that fits that criterion."
Dankwah said the polling points to Mahama improving his election 2024 performance in such areas.
"About 34 percent of people who voted for Nana Addo in 2020 are voting for John Mahama this time around."
