As the 2024 Lok Sabha election approaches, Narendra Modi remains India’s first choice for prime minister. According to the latest edition of India Today’s Mood of the Nation poll, the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance is expected to win 284 seats if elections were held today. Meanwhile, Congress is projected to win 191 seats.

Prime Minister Modi remains India’s favorite to be prime minister with 52% of voters favoring his government. Other contenders emerging from the BJP include Home Minister Amit Shah (26%), Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath (25%) and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari (16%).

About 14% said Congress MP Rahul Gandhi could be the next prime minister. As the Wayanad MP wraps up the sprawling Bharat Jodo Yatra, 37% thought the protest march had generated enthusiasm but would not help promote the elections. Some 29% seem to think it’s a great exercise for mass connection, while 13% called it a “rebranding exercise for Rahul Gandhi.”

While Voter List C suggests Congress will continue its term in the opposition seats, Gandhi and Congress leader Sachin Pilot have been hailed as the best leaders to revive Congress. Gandhi seems to have taken a clear lead in recent months and won 26% of the vote for him.

According to the poll, Delhi Prime Minister Arvind Kejriwal is the most suitable person to lead the opposition with 24% of the vote. He is followed by West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee with 20% and Rahul Gandhi with 13%.

Heading into his 10th year in office, the Modi government’s performance has found favor with 67% of those polled. On an individual level, about 72% of respondents said they were satisfied with the PM’s performance. The number has risen 11% since August of last year. Consequently, there was also a significant drop in the percentage of people ‘dissatisfied’ with the BJP-led administration.

Data from C voters indicated that many believe the greatest achievements of the NDA government were its handling of the COVID-19 pandemic (20%), the repeal of Article 370 (14%), and the construction of Ram Mandir (12%). %).

Somewhat contradictory, 8% of people also think that his handling of the pandemic was the biggest failure of the NDA government. According to the survey, 25% believe their biggest failure is ‘raising prices’, while 17% focus on their ‘failure to address unemployment’.

The Mood of the Nation survey had 35,909 respondents covering all segments of the Lok Sabha in India. It also made use of more than 1 lakh interviews from C-voter’s regular tracking data.
