Exit Polls 2019: Majority of the predictions are hinting to a BJP-led NDA victory

Even though there’s time, still, in the result day of 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the rounds of exit polls are already going on, hinting to a big victory of BJP-led NDA. And the opposition and alliances seem to be no match at all for the current ruling party.

As per current predictions of the exit polls done by different media channels and news agencies, BJP is gaining the lead over its rivals, winning almost 300 seats, out of total 542 lok sabha seats. It means that the party is even going to break its own record of 2014, 5 years ago when it won by a massive majority although being less than 300.

But currently, these are all just predictions, though strong ones. They don’t mean that any party which is appearing to win at the moment, will eventually win on May 23rd as well. These exit polls are just a rough idea of how things are playing out from a general perspective, if not an overall view.

NDA has got a lead, as per the exit polls, in states like Bihar, Odisha, West Bengal, Maharashtra, and Madhya Pradesh.

Although, since there are different polls conducted by different media houses, not each one of them is favoring BJP in several states, but all in all, the party has got momentum.

Breaking them down clearly, then PM Modi’s party is projected to win hugely, winning 350 seats out of the total 542 seats, according to News 24-Chanakya. The figures are fluctuating when it comes to polls by other media agencies.

Below are the results/predictions as per the exit polls, in detail.

Talking specifically of some states then in UP, the BJP is winning almost around 60 plus seats (out of the total 80 seats) as per the polls by News 18 and News 24-Chanakya. But then there is also the poll conducted by ABP-Nielsen which shows that BJP’s tally will, in fact, drop heavily to just 22 seats only, out of the total 80 seats in the state.

That’s why it’s safe to say that anything can happen and just believing blindly on the majority of the predictions of these exit polls is not the right thing to do at all.

Exit polls never match up to the actual outcome. Though, the supporters and followers of various parties can cheer about them, if they want to, even before the declaration.

For, now we all have to just wait for May 23rd, 2019.
