News Nation in its in-house opinion poll on Wednesday tried to decode the mood of Delhi.
Arvind Kejriwal remains the most preferred Chief Minister candidate with 45 per cent vote share. He is way ahead of Kiran Bedi with 33 per cent of voters opting for her. Ajay Maken, the face of Congress' campaign committee in Delhi is the CM choice only for 14 per cent voters.
The opinion poll was conducted from January 31 to February 4 with a sample size of 3000 randomly selected respondents across Delhi.
According to the opinion poll, Bhartiya Janata Party is all set to bag 33 seats in Delhi Assembly. This is an addition of 1 seat more than their last tally of 32 seats. News Nation’s previous opinion poll conducted before the announcement of Kiran Bedi as BJP’s chief ministerial candidate had expected 31 seats for BJP.
The minimal rise of one seat in BJP’s seat share is perceived as the result of Kiran Bedi’s announcement of CM candidate and PM Modi’s series of campaign rallies for the party.
Aam Aadmi Party is slightly behind BJP with 32 seats, this is four more than what it got in last Assembly Polls.
The Congress party is expected to further lose 4 seats and its tally is expected to marginalise to 4 seats from 8 seats in comparison to last Delhi Assembly Polls.
AAP is getting 39 percent vote share which is a huge jump of 9 percent as compared to what it got in last Assembly elections.
In last Assembly elections, AAP got 30 percent of popular vote share but this time the party is expected to bag 39 percent vote share.
Congress is expected to suffer a huge loss of 7 per cent votes as compared to what it got in last assembly elections.
Congress got 25 percent of popular votes in last elections but now they are expected to bag only 18 percent votes.
