Out of the total number, 3,205 people representing 62.43% opted for a third political force other than the NPP and NDC in the country.

However, 1,599 people who represent 31.15% voted against the option of having another political force in the country while 330 representing 6.43% were not either-or against the motion.

Below are some comments from the polls:

"The smaller parties are not ready for the presidential seat because when you hear them on air either they speak for the ruling party or the biggest opposition party, but not their party. even now some of them don't have party chairman before the presidential candidate. so till the time, they will make serious we will vote for them. Thank you."

Another user said, "A Third real political force with aim will cut the silly arguments which emerge from both Mahama camp and Akufo-Addo camp."

Results from this poll is only representative of participants and therefore can not be generalised.
