A recent pre-poll survey conducted by the Lokniti-Centre for the Study of Developing Societies (CSDS) indicates that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, holds a significant advantage over the opposition’s INDI alliance in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The survey findings suggest a commanding 12 percent lead for the BJP, highlighting the enduring influence of the Modi factor in Indian politics.

Key Insights from the Pre-Poll Survey

The survey reveals that approximately four out of every ten voters express their support for the BJP, indicating a strong backing for the ruling party. Although the Congress party is expected to make marginal gains, it is unlikely to pose a substantial challenge to the BJP’s dominance.

Modi’s Popularity and ‘Guarantee’

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s popularity remains a decisive factor in shaping electoral preferences, with close to 48 percent of respondents endorsing him as their preferred choice for Prime Minister. In contrast, Congress MP Rahul Gandhi lags behind with only 27 percent of voters favoring him for the top post. Modi’s ‘Modi guarantee’ campaign has resonated strongly with voters, with over 56 percent expressing trust in his assurances compared to 49 percent for Rahul Gandhi.

Public Perception and Satisfaction

The survey indicates a significant level of satisfaction with the performance of the BJP-led government, particularly among supporters of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA). The successful construction of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya emerges as a notable achievement, garnering praise from one in three respondents as the “most admired work” of Modi.

Economic Concerns and Voter Sentiments

Despite concerns over inflation and rising unemployment, the BJP maintains its lead in the pre-poll survey, suggesting that voter sentiments may not be solely driven by economic performance. However, there is a discernible decline in satisfaction with the government’s performance compared to previous years, particularly in urban areas.

Regional Variations and Voter Sentiments

While the BJP enjoys strong support in many regions, there are variations in satisfaction levels across different parts of the country. Southern regions exhibit lower levels of satisfaction compared to the north and west, indicating diverse perceptions of the government’s performance.
