India Today-Axis-My-India survey get Gujarat & HP exit poll prediction right

Mumbai: The India Today-Axis My-India exit poll predictions have once again delivered a perfect forecast for the 2022 assembly elections in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh.

Exit polls conducted by India Today-Axis-My-India predicted that the BJP would sweep prime minister Narendra Modi's home state, Gujarat, for the seventh time in a row, but that it would lose Himachal Pradesh in a close race with the Congress.

"The results from the two states again demonstrated how accurate India Today-Axis-My-India exit polls are. The most recent forecasts are consistent with its track record of 95 per cent accuracy in election forecasting," the channel claimed.

According to exit polls conducted, the BJP was expected to win between 129 and 151 seats in the 182-member Gujarat assembly. The opposition Congress party was expected to win 16 to 30 seats, while Arvind Kejriwal's AAP would win 9 to 21.

The actual state results, which gave the BJP a landslide and significantly reduced the Congress's strength in the new house, validated India Today's predictions as the most accurate in the industry, the channel said. As predicted, the Aam Aadmi Party finished third.

In Himachal Pradesh, the Congress was expected to win 30 to 40 seats in the 68-member state assembly, which it did.

As predicted by the India Today-Axis-My-India post-poll survey, the BJP fell short of its 2017 performance, when it won 44 seats. Exit polls also predicted that the saffron party would win 24 to 34 seats in 2022.
