The court of public opinion and opinion surveys do not matter much in the stakes for gaining political power in Zimbabwe; two power-centres are pivotal: (i) the military in particular and the deep state in particular and (ii) electoral votes in 11K+ polling stations!
In order to gain political power, popularity is useful but not decisive!
For example, in Zim, it's impossible for any politician or political party to gain the confidence of the military and the deep state by publicly declaring that they'll take care of the military & bureaucracy after winning an election; while also supporting sanctions, like ZDERA!
