With the Lok Sabha elections 2019 inching closer, Republic TV and CVoter have presented the National Approval Ratings to give complete national picture as to who will win if polls are held in September 2018. For Andaman and Nicobar Islands, it is a straight fight between the BJP and the Congress and a solo seat for the 17th Lok Sabha is up for grabs . As per the National Approval Ratings, the BJP is going to pick up that seat in the same way that it did in 2014.

Take a look:

  • The National Approval Ratings project that the BJP despite a 4.6% decrease in vote share from 47.8% in 2014 to 43.2% in October 2018 could win the seat in Andaman and Nicobar.
  • The Approval Ratings indicate that Congress party, despite the BJP’s anti-incumbency, has seen a decrease in vote share by 4.9% and failed to win the one Lok Sabha seat from the territory.   
  • While the BJP has been winning the Andaman seat ever since 2009, the INC last won the seat in 2004 and its present projection of getting 39.4% of the vote means that Rahul Gandhi's party, in Andaman and Nicobar has consistently declined in terms of voteshare in fact this is the Congress lowest project since 1998 when the party touched a 35.9% voteshare.

2018 has been a blockbuster year so far as far as the political landscape of India is concerned. While BJP managed to form government in 3 states this year, either in alliance or on its own, gaining a massive lead over the Opposition, the Congress, by forming government in Karnataka by tying up with the JDS, saved itself from being out of power in all large states, save for Punjab. Out of 4 states, which went to polls this year, BJP has its government on its own in Tripura and with alliance partners in two states, namely, Meghalaya (with National People’s Party), Nagaland (with Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party), whereas the Congress managed to form government in Karnataka with JDS as its alliance partner.

The results of 2019 Lok Sabha elections may or may not reflect the results or scenarios of the state assembly elections, nevertheless, to establish where we stand at present, Republic TV and CVoter has presented the National Approval Ratings.
