The opposition NDA is tipped to get 179 to 189 seats on a 32 per cent vote share, according to the poll conducted by CVOTER among 9,604 respondents across 54 Lok Sabha seats on July 9 and 10 in the aftermath of Left parties withdrawing support to the UPA government. BJP's LK Advani topped the list of "best prime minister" with 17 per cent voting in his favour, followed by Congress president Sonia Gandhi (15 per cent), her son and Congress MP Rahul Gandhi (12) and former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee (11).
On the controversial Indo-American nuclear deal 42 per cent considered it pro-India, 23 per cent anti-India while 35 said they cannot give an opinion. 31 per cent felt the Left parties were right in withdrawing support on the deal while 40 per cent said the decision was wrong.
The survey covered a sample of 604 voters, according to a spokesman for the Week magazine.
