Gujarat polls: Times Now-VMR survey predicts BJP victory

An opinion survey conducted by Times Now-VMR predicts an easy win for the BJP in Gujarat Assembly election, but the party will fall short of its ambitious 150-seat mark.

The BJP is expected to secure 111 seats in the 182-member House, while the Congress will finish a distant second with 68 seats, seven more than what it bagged in the previous state polls.

Other parties finish at the bottom of the table with only 3 seats apiece.

The survey results reveal that the BJP’s vote-share has declined by 3 per cent and the Congress has increased its vote-share by 1 per cent since the 2012 election.

Chief Minister Vijay Rupani continues to remain popular in the state, with 36 per cent respondents supporting the incumbent’s return as head of the state government.
