The recent defeats of the BJP at the hands of the Congress party in its traditional strongholds like Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh may not affect the latter’s performance in Delhi for the upcoming 2019 Lok Sabha election, predicted News Nation’s Opinion Poll. According to the opinion poll, the Bharatiya Janata Party is likely to get 39 per cent of vote share whereas the Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party might end up getting 31 per cent of vote share. The Congress party may get 15 per cent of vote share.
However, the BJP might not be able to repeat its 2014 Lok Sabha performance when the party won all 7 Lok Sabha seats. This time, the party might lose one seat against the Aam Admi Party (AAP) taking the BJP tally to 6, AAP 1 and Congress 0.
As far as the most preferred prime ministerial candidate is concerned, it seems that the Modi Magic is still working in the national capital. 49 per cent of Delhiites voted for Narendra Modi whereas Congress president Rahul Gandhi trailed behind with only 19 per cent votes.
