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 the state of Arunachal Pradesh, there are two seats up for grabs and while these were shared between the INC and the BJP in 2014, it seems to be swinging the BJP way in 2019.  

  • The National Approval Ratingings project that the BJP has make significant inroads in Arunachal Pradesh since 2014 with a 10.6% increase in voteshare from a 46.1%  to 56.7% for the BJP. This double digit voteshare gain comes close on the heels of the fact that just this year was a dramatic change of guard where in the BJP took over the Arunachal Pradesh Assembly
  • The BJP is projected to double its seatshare since the previous General Elections from a single seat to two seats
  • The Congress party, on the other hand, is projected to face a 1.9% decline in vote share and lose out on the 1 seat it had won in 2014
  • Historically, a 56.7% voteshare for the BJP would mean the BJPs best ever vote share performance in the state

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.
