AAP gains from both INC and BJP in Delhi polls, hung assembly likely; Kejriwal most preferred CM candidate : ABP News-Nielsen survey


New Delhi 25th Oct 2013: Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is likely to gain from both the Indian National Congress (INC) and Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) in the upcoming Delhi polls. According to the opinion poll conducted by ABP News and Nielsen, AAP is likely to bag around 18 seats. BJP is likely to emerge as the single largest party surpassing the incumbent Congress in the assembly polls with around 28 seats and a vote share of about 34 per cent.


The poll predicts Congress is likely to get 22 seats in the 70-member assembly. AAP is seen gaining with a vote share of about 15 per cent from the Congress and the BJP. Other parties and Independents are likely to manage only two seats in the upcoming Delhi polls.


According to the survey, with Kejriwal's AAP gaining momentum it has become a three-corner contest, where BJP has a slight edge. The scenario emerging with the survey could change once the candidates are announced.


Even more good news for the BJP would have emerged if they didn’t have AAP as their competitor they would have gained another 15 per cent share from the Congress displaying them as the clear winner.


According to the ABP News-Nielsen survey, there is a reduction in the loyalist base for both Congress and BJP in the last 2 months, resulting in a gain for Arvind Kejriwal's AAP.
