    You can see this simple fact that the opinion polls got just one thing wrong,that is anti incumbency mistakes in TN and AP,

    And under estimating anti incumbency in Bengal.

    so,basically they were not too much off the mark.

    Most Important thing to note is that for last few years...........

    Be it assembly or LS elections, the party/alliance emerging as the largest in Pre-poll surveys have been given thumping victory by the voters, for eg., UPA for 2009, SP for 2012 UP elections, Gujarat-2012 & so on......

    Same way, i think if the Opinion polls are showing around 210 seats for NDA, nearly 1 year before elections, i think NDA as it is now, should easily get 250+ seats when the actual results come.

    BTW, huge majority is in BJP/NDA favoring here, 40 votes & 34 wants BJP/NDA to come be it with or without Modi.

    Relax buddy, we don't know that they were even Indians.

    I had selected the option to see the member list as to who voted, but don't know why isn't it visible.

    BJP fielded

    New Delhi: Hitting out at the BJP in in the Parliament on Wednesday, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said that the main Opposition had used abusive language UPA leadership but he would not respond in the same manner.

    Taking a dig at the Bhartiya Janata Party, the PM said that their shining India campaign was a disaster in 2004 General Elections. “The NDA may be defeated again if they continue with their arrogance." He also took a potshot at senior BJP leader LK Advani saying that the party had fielded the ‘Iron Man’ in 2009 and lost. Advani was BJP's PM candidate in 2009 General Elections.



    Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in a recently concluded BJP national conclave in Delhi had made a scathing remark on the Congress party, the Gandhi family and Manmohan Singh. He had called Congress termites and the PM a night watchman. He had also said that the Congress had sacrificed the interest of the nation for the sake of one family.

    On the issue of violence against women the PM appealed to all members of Parliamnet cutting across party lines to make sure that justice is done to fifty percent of India's population. “We have adopted a series of measures so that corrective action can be taken. We need to collectively work towards this cause. Want consensus on laws to deal with crime against women.”

    On the issue of on the economic growth PM said it was the aim of the government to achieve an average GDP growth of 8 percent during the 12th Plan.

    He said that the government’s record is clear as “we have delivered an average growth rate of 7.9 percent since taking office in 2009.”

    The PM further said that while “our aim is to achieve an average GDP growth of 8 percent during the 12th Plan, the focus will continue to remain on inclusive growth.”

    Defending government’s policies, Singh said, “Our policies led to a growth of 6.8 percent per year in real agricultural wages in the 11th Plan compared with only 1.1 percent in the previous decade.”

    "Even if the comparison is limited to the six years of the NDA government, the growth was only six percent," the PM said. "This is the highest growth rate ever achieved by any government over its tenure," he added.

    Dude, Internet polls are useless...BJP crusaders make sure that they win every time.
    Like last election, every internet poll BJP was winning. But actual result?
    Just look at it here...NDA gets 80% of vote here. :what:

    & what about the largest party in India, which has the most money as well??

    Fair enough, if you don't trust this vote, see the India Today & ABP surveys which have been posted in this thread, even you can look out for NDTV surveys as well.

    Very interesting survey. BJP without Modi reveals an even split= to congress. Considering BJP has not endorsed Modi, may people here are really looking at a verdict very different from what they expect.


    Survey designs factor in all these things

    I also tried to view the members but not possible.

    Every person tries to endorse the party he supports.

    But one should be stupid to support congress with rahul even after all this BS India has gone through under them.

    Much better than cheap politics played by BJP rulers. Even if rahul leads, they have clever talented ministers who could do much better during recession time. You should also remember that UPA is coalition government. they managed 10 years of colation. This s some thing really great.
