On the day when Election Commission announced the dates for the Lok Sabha polls, Republic TV and CVoter have brought to you the National Approval Ratings. The survey gives a complete picture of who will win the polls in Gujarat.
The home state of PM Narendra Modi has 26 seats for the general elections and has been a BJP stronghold in state and Lok Sabha polls. It is also the state which is being observed very closely due to these reasons.
Based on the numbers from March survey, the NDA is likely to sweep the state bagging 24 seats and UPA may get only 2 seats.
The vote share for the state is as follows:
For the 26 seats up for grabs, BJP is projected for a massive win by grabbing 24 seats, while Congress is predicted to win 2 seats and none for others.
As far as the projections are concerned, the state has made no massive movement. As far as the vote share is concerned, UPA has a vote share of 39.1% in the state, while NDA persistently continues to lead according to predictions with 54.1% and 6.8% for Others.
As per the National Approval Ratings of December, out of the 26 seats, the BJP was set to get 24 which is a 2 seat drop from 2014. The 2 seats the BJP was slated to lose is being directly projected to be gained by the Congress and none for others.
