Congress Descending Into It's Grave

UPA loses sheen as BJP inches ahead: Survey



TNN | May 21, 2012, 03.23AM IST

NEW DELHI: As it completes three years of its second term in office, the Congress-led UPA is losing its sheen while rival BJP is nosing ahead, a survey has revealed. The survey, conducted across 28 cities in April-May, reveals BJP could get 28% of the vote if Lok Sabha elections are held now, while Congress would manage only 20%.

According to the ABP News AC Nielsen survey, BJP has is slowly gaining as only 69% of those who voted for Congress in 2009 are still intending to vote for it. Thirty-one per cent are moving away from it and 12% of these respondents intend to vote BJP. Whereas for BJP, 84% of those who voted for it will stick with the party and only 2% of those leaving are switching to Congress.

Price rise and corruption seem to have affected Congress. And on likely PMs, Gujarat CM Narendra Modi has 17% backing over Manmohan Singh at 16%. Modi was preferred at number four during last year's survey (12%). Singh was ranked at number one last year (21%). Rahul Gandhi's score has dipped from 19% to 13% this year. Sonia Gandhi's score is down from 14% to 9%.

The findings suggest that BJP's upswing is still not robust although Congress's fortunes are declining. For the BJP, the dip of 8% in the Congress vote share is not a complete gain. The BJP is gaining only a marginal 1%. The remaining 7% dip in Congress vote share among these respondents is a gain for regional parties that tends to confirm the view that these parties will be crucial in the formation of the next government.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's ratings are good with 37% respondents saying his performance was good or very good. Another 33% ranked him average while 28% believed his performance was poor or very poor. So, he seems to be escaping to some extent the decline in Congress ratings.

About 36% of respondents felt the PM's performance was better than its last term. A dip of 8% is noted in the perception of people from last year's survey, where 44% respondents said the PM performed better than his previous term.

Around 32% of respondents felt the UPA government's performance was better or much better than its last term. A dip of 8% is observed in the perception of people from last year's survey, where 40% of respondents felt that the performance of UPA government is better than in the previous term. 39% rated UPA performance as "about the same" this year, similar score in comparison to last year.

UPA-2 seems to be failing in the key parameters of governance. 25% respondents wanted the government to take immediate steps to control corruption while 24% felt the government should take steps to monitor rising food and petrol prices.

Concern over Naxalism is growing and is cited by 15% of respondents, this was mentioned by only 8% during last year's survey.

Majority of respondents (57%) said the UPA government was the most corrupt government post-independence, and this figure has increased significantly as compared to the previous year (45%).

Around 54% of respondents felt that 2G spectrum scam has impacted India's image as an investment destination. Only 10% of respondents believed that home minister P Chidambaram has not played any role in 2G scam.

Answer both questions:
  • What’s your age?
  • Do you plan to stay in India or settle abroad?

Re: Congress Descending Into It's Grave

Congress, BJP ... all the same shit. Both these parties have plenty of real criminals as MPs in the Lok Sabha. And all the while they are giving bhashan on probity in public affairs. Ha ha.

But ...

Time to show the door to Sonia Amma and Manmohani. Enough misgovernance from these scamsters. Now's the turn of the next bunch of clowns to take over — the Gomata cum Ram Mandir brigade.

Re: Congress Descending Into It's Grave

I think one more option should be added to the poll. Is there is any chance for mid-term polls. Because i think it is highly impossible for the Cognress to complete its full term in this 2nd round.........
Well anyway whether it is in 2014 or in this year itself congress should start thinking whether Rahul Gandhi will be a good opposition leader....or does he needs more time to get kicked and what not by the UP people and by others as well........

You're welcome, Behena.

BTW, Rahul Gandhi is on the look-out for a wife, it seems. Let's face it ... the Congress-wallahs are going to make him Prime Minister, if not today, then tomorrow.

Say ... would you like to be the Prime Minister's wife?
