A US government-funded survey of Afghan voters shows President Hamid Karzai with a substantial lead just 10 days before the country’s presidential election.

The poll shows Karzai with 36 percent support among all the voters surveyed. His closest competitor — former Foreign Minister Abdullah Abdullah — has 20 percent support.

Twenty percent of voters were undecided or refused to answer, while 23 per cent supported other candidates.
