Candidates Amr Moussa and Ahmed Shafiq come first according to a poll published Saturday in state-owned Al-Ahram newspaper.
However, Moussa has lost a lot of support. It probably benefited Nasserist candidate Hamdeen Sabahi. People who want to elect a liberal but not a former Mubarak Minister go for the one who was always in the opposition.
Shafiq is second.
In this poll, Abdel Moneim Aboul Fotouh lost his third place in favour of Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohammad Morsi.
Al-Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies conducted the poll.
