Exit Polls Predict Close Bengal Fight With Thin Edge For Mamata Banerjee

New Delhi: 

Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress has an edge in Bengal, though with a majority greatly shrunk, an aggregate of eight exit polls indicate. The challenger BJP is not far behind, a sea change from the paltry few seats it currently has in the assembly, showed NDTV’s poll of exit polls, indicating a tight contest.

The Trinamool Congress, which surged to power in 2011 toppling the 34-year Left citadel, had improved its tally by 27 seats in 2016, winning 2011.

Numbers indicate that this time, its tally is likely to drop sharply, and the party may win only 152 of the state’s 294 seats — exactly the majority mark.

The BJP tally may shoot up to 130 from the current three seats. The Left Front, which did not make it to a double digit tally in the last election, may win 12 seats.

Statutory warning: Exit polls can often get it wrong.

Of the eight exit polls, the best performance by the Trinamool Congress has been predicted by News 24-Today’s Chanakya, which has predicted 180 seats for the party, 108 seats for the BJP and four seats for the Left. 

ABP News-C voter has predicted 152-164 seats for the party. The BJP is likely to get 109 -121 seats. Even The Left, the poll predicted, is likely to do better with 14 to 25 seats.
