The survey forecasted that both celebrations would get 43%of the votes but BJP could win between 91 and 99 seats+in the 182-member assembly while Congress would need to go for in between 78 and 86 seats. The newest forecasts are an amazing turnaround from the 30-point lead for BJP projected by a poll done by the same agencies in August.

At that time, the seat forecasts were that BJP could cross the 150 mark+ while Congress would have a hard time to cross 30. BJP won 115 seats in the 2012 assembly surveys while Congress won 61.
