Yet another pre-poll survey conducted by popular channel Republic TV, in association with C-Voter in Andhra Pradesh, has predicted a resounding victory for the YSR Congress party in the coming elections. According to this survey, YSR Congress party would get a vote share of 41.9%, whereas Telugu Desam Party would secure only 31.4% — a gap of more than 10 percent.
The survey predicted that out of 25 Lok Sabha seats, YSRCP is expected to win 21 seats in 2019 elections.
Translated into assembly seats, the YSRC would get not less than 140 out of 175 assembly seats, which is going to be a landslide victory for the party.
The survey further predicted that the Bharatiya Janata Party would get only 12.5 % percent votes, whereas Congress party would get as low as 7.2 % percent votes. Though there was no mention of Pawan Kalyan’s Jana Sena Party, one would assume that it would get the remaining six percent of vote share.
Very recently, a couple of other national television channels also conducted similar pre-poll surveys in Andhra Pradesh vis-à-vis Telangana.
Both the surveys predicted that the Telangana Rashtra Samithi would return to power in Telangana, but in Andhra Pradesh, ruling Telugu Desam Party would face a bitter defeat in the assembly elections.
The surveys also pointed out that 43 percent of the electorate prefer YSR Congress party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy as the best bet for the chief minister post, while TDP president and chief minister Naidu could get only 38 percent vote for the same.
