National Approval Ratings: In Goa, NDA Projected For 2014-like Sweep

Written By Navashree Nandini | Mumbai | Published:

In the week leading up to the first phase of the Lok Sabha elections, Republic TV and CVoter have published the National Approval Ratings - the biggest opinion poll ahead of the all-important elections.

In Goa, the BJP is likely to repeat its performance of the 2014 polls, by winning both the seats in the state, with Congress left with none. However, the vote share in the election is projected to be neck-to-neck between the UPA and the NDA, with others also getting 12.8 percent of the vote-share.

Apart from the BJP and the Congress, Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP is also trying to make in-roads in the state, with the Delhi CM scheduled to rally there this week. 

Goa Projections:


UPA: 0

NDA: 2


UPA: 42%

NDA: 45.2%

Others: 12.8%

The BJP lost its majority in the 2017 assembly polls in the state, but managed to form a government under the leadership of the late Manohar Parrikar who helped forge an alliance with Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP), Goa Forward Party (GFP) and some independents.

With the demise of former CM Parikkar, BJP's Pramod Sawant has taken over as the CM of Goa.
