Congress May Fail to Capitalise on Assembly Poll Win in Rajasthan as Pollsters Give BJP Upper Hand

Predicting a near clean sweep for the Bharatiya Janata Party in Rajasthan, the News18-IPSOS Lok Sabha Exit Poll handed 22-23 seats to the saffron party, despite the gains made by the Congress in the desert state in Assembly polls in December. 

The News18-IPSOS Exit Poll predicted a mere two to three seats for the Congress, which is currently in power in Rajasthan. The exit poll numbers suggest a repeat of BJP's 2014 Lok Sabha performance in the state when the party had won all 25 seats in poll fray.
Exit poll numbers from other pollsters also forecasted a similar result in Rajasthan, with some predicting a second clean sweep by BJP. Today's Chanakya exit poll gave 25 seats to the BJP, predicting that the Congress would fail to open its account in the state.
The Republic C-Voter exit poll also handed BJP a comfortable win with a haul of 22 seats, while predicting only 3 seats for the Congress. The India Today Axis exit poll also predicted a similar figure, giving BJP 23-25 seats and Congress 0-2 seats.

The ABP-Nielsen exit poll, however, did predict a haul of six seats for the Congress in Rajasthan, while handing 19 seats to the BJP.

Rajasthan voted in two phases, in phase 4 on April 29 and in phase 5 on May 6. Despite the sweltering heat in most regions of the desert state, the overall polling percentage in the state was just over 66 per cent.
