The Exit Poll Results of all 543 seats for Lok Sabha Elections 2014 are out and the Narendra Modi-led NDA is predicted to form the government, comfortably reaching the magical figure of 272 seats. Modi is the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate for the 2014 elections and is set to become the next prime minister of India, if the Exit Poll results come true.
C Voter’s Exit Poll Survey predicts that NDA will have 289 seats, while the UPA is expected to win 101 seats. As per statistics, NDA will have 38% of vote share and the Congress 25%. The rest of the parties will together claim 37% of the vote share.
An election exit poll is a poll of voters taken immediately after they exit the polling stations. Unlike an opinion poll, which asks whom the voter plans to vote for, an exit poll asks whom the voter actually voted for. As the voting for last phase of Lok Sabha elections draws towards the end, Election Commission of India has given its consent for airing Exit polls by various media outlets in India. The EC had earlier stated that exit polls would not be allowed as these might influence last minute voters. The final counting is set for May 16, 2014. Let’s see if the exit poll predictions come true and the nation elects Narendra Modi as the next prime minister or not.
