Kerala Opinion Poll 2016

Current Chief Minister of Kerala is Oommen Chandy of Indian National Congress (INC). Indian National Congress is the alliance of UDF (United Democratic Front) along with the Indian Union Muslim League, Kerala Congress (M), Revolutionary Socialist Party, Janata Dal (United) and Kerala Congress (Jacob). The main competitor of UDF is Left Democratic Front (LDF), who is going to win the 2016 assembly elections of Kerala as per opinion poll predictions. LDF alliance consists total eight parties, the parties are Communist Party of India (Marxist), Communist Party of India, Janata Dal (Secular), Nationalist Congress Party, Kerala Congress (Skaria Thomas), Indian Congress (Socialist), Indian National League and LDF Supported Independents.

Times Now-CVoter Opinion Poll:

The opinion poll conducted by Times now shows the domination of LDF claiming 86 seats, while UDF is the only competitor with 53 seats. NDA doesn’t seem to trouble any party with its share of 1 seat and other parties couldn’t manage to get even a single seat as per the Times Now-CVoter opinion poll.

Alliance/Party Projected Seat Seat share (%)
LDF 86 44
UDF 53 41
NDA 1 10
Others 0 5

India TV C-voter Opinion Polls

We can again see LDF fetching more than 85 seats in this opinion poll. UDF is behind it with 49 seats in total. BJP yet again opens it account with one seat and other parties seems to be winning one seat in this opinion poll.

Alliance/Party Projected Seat Seat share (%)
LDF 89 45
UDF 49 39
NDA 1 8
Others 1 8

Kerala Opinion Poll by Asianet Poll

The opinion poll conducted by Asianet news also suggests the similar kind of result. LDF is claiming 77-82 seats and LDF will settle for 55-60 seats in the Kerala assembly elections. NDA is expected to have 3-5 seats which are more than the prediction by other news opinion polls.

Alliance/Party Projected Seat Seat share (%)
LDF 77-82 41
UDF 55-60 37
NDA 3-5 18
Others 0 0

At this point, LDF looks like the leading party in all of the exit polls, with UDF behind it. In this assembly election of Kerala, BJP might leave its mark by winning its only seat. However, the opinion polls are just a way to predict the election results. The actual poll result may be completely different as these surveys are conducted on a limited number of people.

It is interesting to see whether current CM of Kerala Oommen Chandy will able to save his CM seat or not. As per the trends it is a difficult phase for UDF to retain the term in the fourteen assembly elections. There is some positive news for BJP (Bhartiya Janta Party), BJP is likely to win 3 to 5 seats. It is also predicted that BJP will eat up the voting share of Oommen Chandy led UDF. The vote share of BJP is constantly increasing from 2006 assembly elections. It is a good signal for BJP, we can say that it is the rise of BJP in Kerala. Mr. Narendra Modi of BJP is going to start his high voltage election campaign from Palakkad. So we can say that main completion in the Kerala assembly election will be in between UDF and LDF. These survey and Kerala opinion poll definitely put Indian National Congress in some tension. There is no scope for any other party or Alliance as per the latest surveys and trends.

These are just the predictions of Kerala assembly elections 2016 conducted by various news channels and survey agencies to know the opinion of voters. The final results could be entirely different.
