So will a rout for the UPA result in a cake-walk for the BJP-led NDA in 2014? Not quite, says the results of a survey by the Delhi-based Marketing and Development Research Associates (MDRA), as reported by Liz Mathew in the Mint:

"Delhi-based Marketing and Development Research Associates (MDRA), which studied its own by-monthly sample surveys and other recent surveys across the country, said as of July 2012, the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) would decline to 130-140 seats if there was an election now to the Lok Sabha, losing 120-130 seats from its present tally of 266 that excludes outside supporters.

"Similarly, the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) would see an erosion in its strength by about 25-35 seats, reducing the number to anywhere between 115 seats and 125 seats...

"MDRA also agreed with senior BJP leader L.K. Advani, who has recently written in his blog that the next Lok Sabha elections can throw up a non-Congress, non-BJP prime minister.

Not a bad picture. Chaos is better than organized destruction caused by UPA-2.

I think the survey is accurate as of date. What will happen during elections is a different issue.

Thats a fabulous result!!! That reduces Congress to roughly 70 seats and the result is also indicating BJP as the largest party, lets say with 80-90 seats. Not bad....Any one ruling India is better than a Congress Government. Hell Pervez Musharaff cannot do a better job destroying India than the current UPA govt. Lets hope that momentum against the govt picks up more traction and Congress is reduced to single digit seats. It is quite possible this time around. Yes we can!!!
