Survey by CNN-IBN and CNBC-TV 18
A survey by the CNN-IBN and CNBC-TV 18, published in the Hindu daily today, has confirmed the trends.
The survey says that the congress party has lost its charm across AP totally because of its vacillation on the Telangana issue. It establishes that the ruling party is trailing behind YSR congress in Seema Andhra area and the TRS party in Telangana area because of its follies on Telangana.
The survey has projected that the congress would get 32 per cent of votes in Seema Andhra area as against 39 in 2009 and 18 per cent of votes in Telangana area as against 33 in 2009. Similarly, the survey has projected a drastic fall in the TDP share of votes by 9 per cent to 24 in Seema Andhra area and by 6 per cent to 15 in the Telangana area.
The survey says that YSR Congress will get a vote share of 36 per cent in Seema Andhra and 7 per cent in Telangana area. The vote share of TRS has increased from 10 to 36, according to its projections.
