With the Lok Sabha elections 2019 inching closer, Republic TV and CVoter have presented the National Approval Ratings to give a complete national picture as to who will win if polls are held right now. For Andaman and Nicobar Islands, it is a straight fight between the BJP and the Congress.
The National Approval Ratings project that the BJP with an increase in its vote share from 47.8% in 2014 to 48.8% in December 2018 could win the seat in Andaman and Nicobar.
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 41.3% of the votes mean that Rahul Gandhi's party, in Andaman and Nicobar has consistently declined in terms of vote shares.
In both October and November predictions in Andaman and Nicobar, NDA was predicted to grab the sole seat, leaving UPA behind in the island state.
2018 has been a blockbuster year so far as far as the political landscape of India is concerned. With the countdown to the all-important 2019 Lok Sabha polls on, and with the results out for the critical assembly elections in five states, December may just be the most important month in terms of deciding who will come up trumps in the general elections.
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.
