But then I came across a survey a few days back that showed the BJP was going to bag half the seats in the South, and I am like, this can not possibly be true. The BJP has no presence in the South, never has. That is too dramatic.
I do think there is a Modi wave. Taking the party from 100 MPs to 200 MPs is quite a wave. But 200 is a long way from 272. And even those same surveys show the non Congres, non BJP parties getting more seats than either of the two biggies.
It can be safely assumed the largest democracy is too large for the polls and surveys to have figured it out yet.
There is also the corporate bias. The big media houses are owned by the major corporate interests that stand solidly behind the right of center Modi.
