Briefly.co.za has discovered that this was established after a poll was conducted which was aimed at determining what might happen to the ANC is a particular candidate was elected.
The survey found that Cyril Ramaphosa was the most popular choice with 58.9% of those surveyed in favour of him becoming the next ANC president according to timeslive.co.za.
Dlamini-Zuma faired far worse and only 16% of those polled in favour of her winning in December.
