Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 3 (Oct 2018 - )

Karnataka/UP had triangular contest. And there were regions within states where one side was stong. These 3 states are straight contest, and not much difference within states. Exit polls probably will be closer to reality this time unfortunately it seems...

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 3 (Oct 2018 - )

Miserable 1 week ahead. Only Jan Ki Baat exit poll, has shown BJP-Congress near equal is the 3 states. Other surveys showing Congress edge in MP, big lead in case of Rajasthan and 50-50 in CH. It will be interesting to see how BJP deals with a demoralised cadre. Many BJP voters might just stay at ho...

What's happening with NRI voting? With Modi great outreach to them, it makes sense to involve them for 2019. It can bring some crucial additional votes for BJP...

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - Oct 2017

Highly unlikely. The SP and BSP rank and file cadre (what is left of it) mistrust each other extremely, let alone their votebanks.

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - Oct 2017

This mahathugbandhan didn't even campaign in many areas, shows how voters had already made up their mind. That doesn't bode well for BJP. So >15% Muslims in states, and complete opposition unity, I don't see how BJP can win.
