Exit poll results 2019: Over 300 seats for NDA; Modi set for 2nd term

Exit poll results 2019
The seventh phase of Lok Sabha elections 2019 has concluded, bringing the curtains on the world's largest democratic exercise, which went on for over five weeks. Today, most exit polls forecast a majority for the ruling BJP-led NDA in Lok Sabha polls with varying numbers as the seven-phase polling in the general elections ended Sunday.

Two exit polls telecast by Times Now gave the NDA 296 and 306 seats, while they projected 126 and 132 for the Congress-led UPA. The CVoter-Republic exit poll has forecast 287 and 128 seats for the NDA and UPA respectively.

However, Neta-News X predicted that the National Democratic Alliance could fall short of the majority and win 242 seats. It gave the UPA 164 seats. Elections to 542 seats of the Lok Sabha ended Sunday. The majority mark is 272. The counting of votes will begin at 8 am on May 23. An exit poll on News 18 forecast that the NDA will win 292-312 seats while it gave 62-72 seats for the UPA. Many exit polls predicted that SP-BSP alliance in Uttar Pradesh is likely to trump the BJP in the country's politically most crucial state. The BJP had won 71 and its ally Apna Dal two of its 80 seats in 2014.

What are exit polls?

An election exit poll is a poll among voters conducted immediately after they leave their polling stations. It is conducted by a number of organisations and is considered an indicator to which party might form the next government.

Lok Sabha elections 2019: How reliable are exit polls?

While exit polls should be seen as an indicator, their veracity can only be judged by their proximity to the actual results. In recent times, there have been several instances of exit polls predicting results that have been very far from the ac tual verdict. For example, in 2004, the exit polls wrongly predicted BJP-led NDA coalition winning again. In 2009, again, Congress-led UPA's seat share was underestimated. In 2014, too, the actual seat tally of of the BJP-led NDA came to be much bigger than those predicted by the exit polls.
