Seriously though, I don't see 2019 as a cake walk for the BJP. Reality would be very close to the numbers for BJP in 2014 if not a bit less, although I do see them forming the government if it is less that the magic number.

5forty3 has once again made his site paywall protected , which I think is a good thing - I would urge others to donate to his efforts, in return for which you get access to his tracker and analyses.

In my maternal side of the family, all but one member are voting for Modi. That is 13:1. >50% were previous Congress supporters including my own father. In 2014 they were unsure but nodded to support Modi. Now the discussions are like TimesNow/Republic debate with one voice loudly supporting Modi over the other. Only factor I see is the mirage of NYAY fooling the poor & neo-middle class. Hope BJP & especially RSS cadres on ground like last time to take the reality of NYAY to the last mile.
Edit : One member who is against Modi is my uncle who is a small town real estate developer & lost quite a bit during demonitisation, even though he is an ex-RSS shakha member. But even his wife & children are voting for Modi.. :rotfl:

Many surveys/estimates are all in that ball park.
Twitter has the principals posting them.

Even BBC had one estimate in that range.


ECI has been doing its best to appear neutral by hitting everyone and making enemies!

SC has been hitting BJP onlee as it fits their secular self image.

Now all its in voters hands.

From my side the BJP govt has done credible work and deserves another term. This may be the sentiment of many if not most educated urban dwellers. However it is rural India which actually votes and will form the govt.

Hearsay: As per one of my acquaintances from UP who is close to SP. This election UP/Bihar is not going to BJP, who will lose because of demonetization, rising unemployment etc. He was mentioning that all the electrification stats are false and answer will be visible at the hustings. He was saying funnily that BJP is castist and has created divide on basis of cast and religion. He also accused the govt of misusing ED/IT/CBI to target opposition.

I find it interesting that he did not mention the SP-BSP alliance as the cause of BJP's defeat. That is the only danger. The other reasons are hogwash IMO. And an SP supporter complaining of casteism is hilarious.

For good, bad or Ugly, This is the moment of truth for Smart or corrupt Indian voter. Do we want progress and Independence or Doles and life of penury and slavery ? Do we want to compete with Pakis and BD's and play serfs to Palestianian, Chinese and African causes or fight for Indian interests.
This election will define the direction Bharat takes in next 25 years and if Dharma would flourish after centuries of suppression or do we go back to drawing board as Gauri, Gazanavi and Abdali have breached the fort once again.

Admins, please let me know if I should delete this post as it is taken from content behind a paywall. Have tried to provide only limited information. Would urge rakshaks to pay and access 5forty3 analysis.

http://www.5forty3.in/gaze_articles.php?articalid=222

Key points from above article "India at noon on day one: The eastern saffron surge is the story of the day!":
1. BJP+ in unassailable lead in Assam and Bihar.
2. Big news from Odisha. Keen contest in all 4 seats. BJP ahead in 2.
3. BJP leading in both seats in West Bengal as expected.
4. BJP strong in 5 out of 8 seats in UP.

From wiki
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Western_Uttar_Pradesh

Western UP has 26% muslims while it is 20% in all UP. Jats, Jatavs and Brahmins all make more than 15% of the population each.

My biggest worry is that we were banking on gains from WB and Orissa to offset potential losses in UP. But if polls are rigged in WB, and EC doesn't take any action of providing central forces at all booths, then it may get difficult for BJP.

320/400 tally: bjp 320 ; nda close to 400


Last time (2014) i somehow managed to predict nda score in the bracket much closer to actual results in poll conducted here. This time i'm using same methodology to give this number. Last time my number was accurate, better than the Mission Shakti Asat test accuracy if i discount last time mistakes by adjusting my number based on exit polls. So this time this is my final number. No changes! Cheerio!
