Re: 2019 General Elections News and Discussion

Next big is TN with 39 seats. My prediction* is this time it will be split 19 or 20 for either party-alliances. 20 seat loss for AIADMK/NDA. * I don't have district wise nuances of electorate unlike in AP. DMK gave 10 seats to congies and all of them Cong don't have anything on the ground to campai...

One funny thing in all this is BJP may get more seats from rest of the South this time than in 2014. We are looking one or two in KL, at least 3 in TN and may be 2 in TS and better than last time in KA. NDA of course will do way better with ADMK getting some seats. For Karnataka it may be >22 anyti...

TDP's situation in AP has a different paradigm than what many writing. Now unless some surprise happens, it is over and Jagan will be CM. The miracle has to be that all the data and official/unofficial polls have to go wrong. If you take away 1983 when TDP formed, all other elections TDP only can wi...
