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. It’s seeming to be status quo in Meghalaya as well in terms of seat share and vote share.

  • We have a situation in which in 2014 the UPA and NDA split the 2 parliamentary seats and that’s the same as what is being projected in 2018 so not much movement there
  • But in terms of voteshare, we see a lot of rumble. 39.2% of the voteshare is projected for the BJP which is 8.1% more than what was netted in 2014
  • As the NDA’s voteshare surges, the UPA’s voteshare is nosediving by 14.1% as per the projection

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.
