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 on November 1, 2018. Jharkhand holds the key to 14 seats and the projects as of today indicate:

  • 6 seats for the BJP, 7 seats for the INC-JMM combine and one seat of the JVM. For the BJP this means a 6 seat fall from 2014, while for the Congress party it has meant gaining 2 seats  
  • Considering the fact that just yesterday 191 blocks were slated to be declared as drought-hit, could that be the reason for the swing consistently away from the NDA towards the INC, in an almost direct transfer of votes. While the UPA is projected to be up by 5 seats from its 2014 tally, the NDA seems to be down 6 seats from its 2014 tally
  • What Is interesting is that the even if you look at the last month, there is a direct transfer of vote from the NDA to the UPA with the NDA losing 2 seats in the last 30 days while the UPA has gained the same number
  • Should the BJP record the projected 6 seats as its final tally, it will be the party’s worst performance in the state in a Lok Sabha election ever since 2004

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 critical assembly elections in five states due in the next few weeks, November may just be the most important month in terms of deciding who will come up trumps in the general elections. Even as the Prime Minister dedicated the world's tallest statue -- the Statue of Unity -- to the nation on the 143rd birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, and a few days before that, commemorated Subhash Chandra Bose and the 75th anniversary of the Azad Hind Government, a massive war of words was triggered over appropriation of freedom icons. Additionally, the Supreme Court has delayed its hearings in the Ayodhya dispute, and will only decide in January when the hearings will take place. This has caused many among the pro-Mandir bent-of-mind, including the RSS, VHP and Hindu Mahasabha, to push the government to do whatever it can to build the Ram Mandir, with an ordinance on the matter the most frequently stated solution. In the last month has seen heated polemics over the events at the CBI, with the government acting on the CVC's recommendation to send the two top-most officers at India's premier investigative agency -- Rakesh Asthana and Alok Verma -- on leave after they had both accused the other of corruption.

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.
