Given whats going on in eThekwini, I doubt there will be a last minute surge in votes for the ANC... possibly a last minute severe drop in votes is more likely.

so the ANC holds the rural voters, and other parties (coalitions) hold the urban areas,

why is that so bad?

Problem is ANC voters in that province will either stay away from the polls, vote IFP/NFP. The rest will vote ANC because they do benefit from the corruption (or rather will campaign that the voting fodder give their votes to the ANC to keep the fat pigs' troughs well supplied with tax payer money).

I (possibly stupidly) think otherwise, after reading social media for the last few days... the Vitriol being thrown out at the ANC is intense, and from the people who would normally support them. And currently a vote for the IFP (The NFP is largely dead), is better than the ANC.... Also given the fact that the ANC is no longer zulu run will hurt them in the elections as well. I don't see them collapsing and the province being run by anyone else, but I see it being VERY tight.

Also hopeful that the IFP can gain ground in Zululand now that Msholozi is not running things anymore.

ANC won't loose Gauteng if the EFF have anything to say about it. ;)
This^. Coalition coming, despite the ruling party publicly declaring they will not form a coalition and become the official opposition if they dont win outright.

The ANC voters havent smartened up. They have, and I know this may be hard to believe, become even dumber as they are now EFF supporters.

I think the WC is still a shoe in for the da... Gauteng though I don't think any party will get 50%...
I was actually wondering about this for the Western Cape.

do you think now that Patricia de Lille has started her own Good party that this will have any effect on the coloured voters down in Western Cape?

I wonder if her party will take away some of the votes from the DA down in Western Cape just like the EFF took some of the ANC vote base.

It will draw a few percentage points at best in my opinion.

As much as the way the DA handled the situation was atrocious, there is a still a massive cloud over Patricia and the WC does seem to have a more savvy voting base when it comes to this sort of thing.

The ANC won KZN, multiple times with Mandela and Mbeki (both Xhosa), at the helm. Don't come here with your tribalism rubbish. You're clutching at straws - also, it was the ANC KZN who played a big role to depose Zuma at the elective conference in Nasrec. I do not know where these polls come from, but they could not be more wrong about the outcome in KZN - come back after elections and I will say I told you so.

No they won't. The EFF will give them the provinces on the promise that EWC and other destructive radical socialist policies are pushed post-elections. If this all goes through then the EFF will give them the major metros in 2021 and South Africa will then be over the precipice.
