Just months ahead of the much-awaited Lok Sabha polls, Republic TV, in association with C-Voter, has come up with the fourth edition of the National Approval Ratings to determine how the elections could pan out should they be held in January.
In the state of Manipur, which has two Lok Sabha seats, it is projected that there will be a tie between Congress-led UPA and BJP-led NDA. Both of them are expected to win one seat each, with close contest expected even in terms of vote share - UPA with 40.3% and NDA with 39.4%. The Others will fail to grab a single seat despite a projected vote share of 20.3%.
Comparison to the previous editions
UPA: In the December edition, they were projected to not win a single seat with a vote share of 40.1%. It was a much projection to their situation in November, when it was predicted that they will win zero seats with just 31.6% votes. So, this time around, ie January edition, UPA is projected to not only improve its vote share, but also open its account in terms of seats.
NDA: In the December edition, they were winning both the seats with a handsome vote share of 41.6%. It was an increase, in terms of vote share, in comparison to their projected situation in November - the NDA was projected to win the two seats with a vote share of 38%. Hence, this time around, it is not only a drop in terms of vote share, but also in terms of seat share.
Others: They were projected to win zero seats in previous editions. In November, it was projected that they will get 30.5% votes, which means this time around, in comparison to November, they will massively lose their vote share. Though, in comparison to December, they are faring slightly better.
(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.)
