With 2019 Lok Sabha elections looming over the nation, News Nation has conducted an Opinion Poll to gauge the voting intention in the politically crucial Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. Our reporters travelled across all the Lok Sabha constituencies (Chhattisgarh -11, Madhya Pradesh - 29) and asked people several questions to find out who will have the better chance of winning the ensuing General Elections 2019.
Talking about Chhattisgarh, the BJP, which bagged 10 of the 11 Lok Sabha seats in 2014, is likely to win five seats while the Congress will claim victory on the remaining six seats. A neck-and-neck fight is expected between the BJP and the Congress, with the former likely to get 41 per cent of the votes and the latter expected to garner 42 per cent of the total votes in Chhattisgarh.
As per the News Nation poll survey, the BJP is expected to win 21 of the 29 seats in Madhya Pradesh, witnessing a downfall in its performance in the 2014 Lok Sabha Elections. As far as the vote share is concerned, the BJP is likely to get 41 per cent of the total votes while the Congress may get 35 per cent vote share. In the last Lok Sabha elections, the BJP had won 26 seats in the state while the Congress had managed to garner only three seats.
When asked about the most favourable Prime Ministerial candidate in 2019 Lok Sabha Elections, 51 per cent people in Madhya Pradesh voted for Narendra Modi. However, 37 people of the state want Congress president Rahul Gandhi to run the country.
