Kolkata, March 30: The ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC) may lose three per cent of its vote-share because of the Narada sting operation, said an opinion poll jointly conducted by Bengali news channel 24 Ghanta and GFK Mode.
Left may get just 1% of the share TMC may lose
The survey said of that three per cent, while one per cent may go to the Left while two per cent may go elsewhere.
11% voters have changed their minds on voting
It was also said in the survey that 11 per cent of people have changed their minds on voting owing to various reasons while 89 per cent has not.
Among the reasons that led to the change in minds are: alliance issue between Left and Congress (4 per cent have changed their minds because of this), Narada issue (3 per cent have changed their minds], local issues (3 per cent) and other factors (1 per cent).
While 93% of Left supporters is ready to vote for Cong, only 75% Cong is ready to vote for Left
The survey also found that while 93 per cent of the Left supporters is ready to vote for a Congress candidate in the upcoming election, while 7 per cent said no.
On the other hand, it predicted that only 75 per cent of the Congress supporters is ready to vote for the Left while 25 per cent said no.
As a result...
The survey said if all the Left and Congress votes went to the alliance, then it may win 61-66 seats of the 76 seats in North Bengal (including Murshidabad district). The TMC may get just 10-15 seats.
But if that doesn't happen, then the alliance may win 51-56 seats while the TMC's tally may go up to 20-25.
