Opinion on Opinion Polls

Opinion polls serve as eye opener for some and root cause for lethargy for some in politics, especially during the run up to elections. The recent survey taken by some media houses with the help of some companies paste a picture that brings smile on the BJP supporters and makes the Modi supporters exult. The surveys predict a favourable atmosphere for BJP in 3 States going to the polls, with Rajasthan offering it a landslide victory, the Chattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh voters exude a feel that they will be sticking to the incumbent Government, Delhi appears to be heading for a hung Assembly. One opinion poll gives Congress a slight edge over others in Delhi and a lesser impact in Rajasthan with some gains in Chattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh. But most of them state that it is BJP all over with Delhi giving an unclear mandate.
