Karnataka Assembly Elections 2018: NewsX-CNX Exit Poll Survey Accurate
The NewsX-CNX Exit Poll for the Karnataka Assembly Elections 2018 has yet again delivered the most credible survey results for the Karnataka assembly elections.
The NewsX-CNX Exit Poll for Karnataka Assembly Elections 2018 delivered the most credible survey results for the much-anticipated assembly elections in the state. On the polling day, NewsX-CNX projections indicated that BJP had strong chances to dethrone the ruling Congress party in the state assembly elections.
With BJP failing to reach the magic number of 112, focus has currently shifted to the Raj Bhawan as JD(S), supported by the Congress, informed Governor Vajubhai Vala about their willingness to stake claim to form a coalition government. BJP too is expected to stake claim to form the government in Karnataka.
Congress and BJP were main contenders for power in these elections, with former prime minister H D Deve Gowda's JDS positioned to play a decisive role in the formation of the government. The final dash was still on at the time of release of this press note (7.00 p.m. IST).
As projected in the survey, BJP grabbed a total of 104 of 222 seats, with the Congress managing 78, followed by JDS+ with 38 and others with 2 seats. We may recall the NewsX-CNX Exit Poll had predicted that BJP will bag 102 to 110 of the 222 seats, with Congress estimated to grab 72 to 78 seats. The exit poll had also predicted that JDS+ will get around 35 to 39 seats while others in the state were predicted to bag around 3 to 5 seats.
