By on October 31, 2013


CNN-IBN Survey reveals that Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is likely to gain from both the Indian National Congress (INC) and Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) in the upcoming Delhi Elections.

The CNN-IBN survey has been conducted from October 16 to 24 in 28 assembly area of Delhi where 2507 people were asked for their opinions. Kejriwal emerged as the  most preferred choice for the chief minister’s post.

The opinion poll said that the AAP was likely to bag as many as 19-25 seats during the elections. The BJP, on the other hand, is likely to bag around 22-28 seats. The survey also suggests that the Congress will bag around 19-25 seats.

The opinion pre-poll said that 25 per cent of the respondents preferred Kejriwal as the chief minister, while 16 per cent preferred incumbent Sheila Dikshit, 10 per cent were for the BJP’s Vijay Goel and 2 percent for BJP’s Harsh Vardhan. However, 28 per cent of respondents favour none of the contestants.

Of those aged between 18 and 25 years, 37% per cent said they would vote for AAP  compared to 26% for BJP and 20% for Congress. “AAP has emerged as a hope of change while the Congress and the BJP are fast losing credibility,” AAP spokesperson Manish Sisodia said.  In the 23-25 age bracket, AAP’s vote share is estimated to be 38%, BJP’s at 22% and Congress at 23%. The 26-35 age group is equally split among the three major contenders, while above 35 age group showed a greater preference for the two national parties, with the BJP slightly ahead in all of them.

The price rise of essential commodities with 41 per cent tops the chart as the main reason for dissatisfaction. Poor governance and lack of development with 18 per cent comes second. Corruption occupies the third place with 15 per cent. Surprisingly, the much-talked-about safety of women has got just 2 per cent support as a big election issue.

The survey reveals 53 percent of the respondents are dissatisfied with Delhi’s Government Performance, and 60 percent of the respondents are not in favour of giving Sheila Dikshit another chance as CM candidate.

Survey revealed that Delhi is moving towards hung assembly. AAP has already announced that they will never support Congress or BJP.
