MUMBAI: News channel ABP that carries out its election poll in association with research agency Nielsen India has come up with its latest prediction on which party’s shares have dropped or gained in the recent past.
The opinion poll conducted between 9 March-16 March 2014 with 456 respondents claims a margin of error of ±5 per cent.
The new poll predicts that Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) led by Arvind Kejriwal is set to lose a few vote shares in Delhi. “It is likely to get around 34 per cent vote share and three seats in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls as compared to 55 per cent vote share in the opinion poll conducted in January 2014,” says the poll statement.
Congress on the other hand is predicted to be putting on a few extra vote shares which is an improvement from the poll prediction in January. According to the ABP News-Nielsen poll, ‘Congress is likely to benefit by AAP’s loss and is predicted to get a vote share of 28 per cent and one seat as compared to 14 per cent in February 2014 and nine per cent in January 2014’.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is expected to get 32 per cent vote share and three seats which is higher than the 30 per cent vote share and one seat that was predicted in February 2014 and 29 per cent share in January 2014.
The ‘Kaun Banega Pradhanmantri’ (KBP) poll has also been launched as an application for android users that will allow subscribers to get updates about the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. The app has sections such as top news, city polls, KBP show videos and live TV.
