According to the survey, the Congress's seat share will decrease by 93 seats (from 206 to 113) but the BJP will be able to increase its tally from 116 to 141. In terms of vote share, the Congress will witness a slide of 13 per cent while the BJP will be able to raise its share by just six percent. The survey clearly concludes that the BJP-led NDA has failed to capitalise on the failure of the Congress-led UPA government and it looks that a non-Congress, non-BJP coalition is likely to gather the required 272 seats to form the government at the Centre.
The four regional forces, namely, Mamata Banerjee, Mayawati, Jayalalithaa and Naveen Patnaik are likely to win 93 seats together and have a big influence in the formation of the government, the survey indicated.
The Congress and the BJP, were, however not ready to concede defeat at the moment. While the Congress said it will come up with a good performance in the Karnataka polls and turn the table around, the BJP said its support was gradually increasing and it will be overwhelming by the time the next Lok Sabha polls arrive.
The Trinamool Congress reacted to the polls saying it wouldn't go with the NDA before the next Lok sabha polls for it had a huge minority vote (27 per cent) at stake.
The poll indicated that the Congress will be completely decimated in states like Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Bihar, Gujarat, Delhi, Kerala, Rajasthan and others. The BJP, on the other hand, did not have much hope either for its lack of clear functioning, which has left the common people confused.
