Mumbai: In a noteworthy step towards gauging the sentiments of Kerala voters, Manorama News initiated an innovative collaboration with Voter's Mood Research for an expansive pre-election survey preceding the 2024 Lok Sabha Elections. This survey, titled '20th il Aaru?', stands as the most extensive of its kind in Kerala, involving a massive sample size of 28,000 voters who each participated in thorough face-to-face interviews. The endeavour aims to comprehensively capture the prevailing political landscape's intricate nuances.

These survey results offer invaluable insights into Kerala voters' prevailing political sentiments and preferences, setting the stage for an intriguing electoral showdown in the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections.

In Attingal, Kannur, and Vadakara constituencies, the survey foresees tightly contested battles, highlighting the competitive nature of the electoral landscape.

Respondents identified the Citizenship Amendment Act as the Central Government's most significant achievement while expressing major concerns over issues such as the Manipur dispute.

An overwhelming majority (66 per cent) of respondents indicated that their voting decisions would be influenced by the performance of the state government, indicating a focus on local governance matters.

Perceptions of the central government were varied, with 34 per cent describing the Modi Government’s performance as average. Interestingly, a significant majority (50 per cent) expressed admiration for the performance of the opposition party.

The survey was broadcast on television from April 10 to April 12, providing an engaging and informative spectacle for viewers. The panel was led by the prime anchors of Manorama News, including Johny Lukose, Shibu Joseph, Shani Prabhakaran, and Muhammed Rashid. The three-day event was shot and presented in Manorama News’ exclusive Virtual Infinity Set which is the first of a kind news channel in India with a multi-tracking camera system.
