With just under a month left until the polling day, a recent pre-poll survey conducted by ‘Lok Poll’ suggests that Congress is poised to achieve a significant triumph in the upcoming 2023 Karnataka Assembly elections. The survey reveals that Congress has made progress since a similar poll conducted in February, while the BJP’s numbers have continued to decline.
The opinion poll by ‘Lok Poll’, which surveyed over 65,000 respondents from various districts in the state, predicts that Congress will secure 128-131 seats, with a vote share of 42-45%. The BJP is expected to secure 66-69 seats, with a vote share of 30-33%, while JDS is predicted to secure 21-25 seats, with a vote share of 15-18%. Other parties may secure 1-4 seats, with a vote share of 6-9%.
According to the pre-poll survey, BJP is likely to perform well in the Kittur Karnataka region and maintain its dominance in coastal Karnataka. However, the party is expected to suffer significant losses in Central Karnataka, which it swept in the 2018 state assembly elections.
This #LokPoll Pre-Poll Survey looks realistic & the trend shown is similar to C-Voter Survey as well as the mood on the ground… https://t.co/Haym7c3fS8
