National Approval Ratings: NDA Likely To Defeat UPA In Tripura By Winning Both The Seats

Written By Daamini Sharma | Mumbai | Published:

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. The BJP is all set to pluck the 2 seats that the CPM won in 2014.

  • There is a direct shift in the vote
  • But what is more heartening for the BJP is that the NDA is taking its tally of 5.7% of the vote to a whopping 50.7% of the voteshare all by itself and without any regional ally crutch
  • In fact the gains in the BJP’s voteshare is a clean transfer of vote from teh CPM’s crashing fortunes in the state towards BJP
  • At the same time, the UPA’s voteshare is set to decline by 1.7%
  • Historically, this is the first time the CPM is set to lose the 2 parliamentary constituencies in Tripura since 1991-- so there is a lot of thinking to do for the left

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.
