Survey Data Results:
- The formation of Mahagathbandhan in UP and a dearth of new allies is changing the political arithmetic. The BJP/NDA government is by no means unpopular and Prime Minister Modi continues to command a loyal fan base. However, the opposition parties have pooled their political capital to stall BJP’s juggernaut.
- The survey results hint at the possibility of a hung parliament and ultimately a coalition government can come into existence.
- If 2014 was a case of disjointed opposition and rejuvenated BJP, 2019 is a case of united opposition and a measured BJP. The last word on election is yet to be spoken but the script is veering towards a new strand of politics.
- In a nutshell a popular Prime Minister is facing stiff challenge from a united opposition. Also, his popularity is facing headwinds due to depressed economic sentiment. A combination of the two may lead to domino effects of driving away the fence sitters and rallying the faithful of opposition. The election to Lok Sabha 2019 is well and truly on with an entire spectrum of probable results. Such a competitive election was inconceivable 6 months ago.
