NDTV's latest opinion poll for Uttar Pradesh shows a big surge for the BJP in the 33 seats that have not voted yet. Uttar Pradesh, the country's most populous state, elects 80 parliamentarians, more than any other state. The NDTV poll shows the BJP winning 23 of 33 seats, up 19 from the last election in 2009 for the same regions.
The BJP's gains come at the cost of the Congress and Mayawati's Bahujan Samaj Party. The poll shows the Congress winning just 1 seat, losing 9 seats from what it had in 2009 and Mayawati getting just three seats, dropping seven seats in this region.
Opinion poll shows that the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance with Narendra Modi as its prime ministerial candidate is likely to get 275 seats, that is three more than the halfway-mark.
