Advantage DMK: Loyola College Poll

Yet another poll was released last week. The poll was conducted by the Visual Communication Department of the Loyola College from April 5th to the 15th in about 122 assembly constituencies. This poll found that the DMK front enjoyed a slight advantage over the ADMK led DPF alliance. The survey indicated that DMK alliance will poll 44.5% of the popular vote and the ADMK alliance will poll about 40.1% of the votes. The survey also concluded that Vijaykanth led DMDK alliance will register an impressive 12.3% of the total votes. However, the survey found that more people predicted that the ADMK alliance will win the elections. Just like the Thuglak poll, I am skeptical about the results of the poll especially the figures indicated for the newly formed DMDK party.

    The percentage of votes predicted for DMDK in the poll survey is quite possible. I have been a very keen observer of politics, TN politics in particular, since my college days in late sixties. The TN voter thinks ‘reel life’ is real life. That’s why all these Chief Ministers of the Dravidian Parties were able to rule TN for such a long period.

    I had been to Madurai, my native place, recently and a keen person in politics that I am, I interacted with the ‘aam junta’, the petty shop keepers, auto rickshaw drivers and so on to know the trend. What they said is no different from the earlier poll surveys. There is a high percentage of people supporting Vijaykanth and what I could observe from the interactions is that but for the presence of Vijaykanth, it would be a cake-walk for Jayalalitha. It is not the case in Madurai alone. Even places such as Chennai, Salem, Thiruvannamalai, Villupuram, Salem etc. have the same mindset. The DMK cadre is a demoralised lot on account of the high command’s neglect of the loyalists in the party. It’s going to be very tough for both the Dravidian Parties but it certainly is ‘advantage JJ’ and not as predicted by ‘Loyola College Poll’.

    Loyola poll is one of the best survey. Sure DMK is going to win according to Loyola poll survey. If sonia comes to TamilNadu for campaign, Sure the trend will change. The percentage will increase for DMK, it will not be static hereafter. I assure u all that DMK is going to win this 2006 election

    The survey is a bit confusing and the various media are twisting it to their benefit. SUN TV showed the vote share percentages. I believe Dinamalar quoted the fact that more people predicted that the ADMK alliance will win. What really matters is the victory in each constituency. Percentages matter only when they can be converted into victory at the various constituencies.

    LOYOLA COLLEGE SURVEYS ARE AGAINST AIADMK ASUSUAL. MAS TOLD THAT LOYALA SURVEYS ARE BEST, IN KUMMIDIPOOND AND KANCHEEPURAM BYE- ELECTIONS LOYALA SURVEY REPORTEDRHAT DMK WUILL WIN IN A HUGE DIFFERENCE,.BUT THE ELECTION RESULTS WERE STRAIGHT OPPOSITE.

    ACCORDING TO LOYALA SURVEY, SUN TV IS THE BEST,KUNGUMUM IS BEST IN WEEKLIES, DINAKARAN AND TAMILMURASU ARE BEST PAPERS IN DAILES, FROM THESER RESULTS WE CAN GET THAT THEY ARE SUPPORTING AS USUAL. AND AIADMK WILL DEFINITELY WIN THE POLLS. THIS IS MY FITRST ELECTION, YOUTHS ARE NOT READY TO VOTE FOR DMK, THIS TIME THERE ARE ABOUT 18LAC NEW VOTERS AND THEY WILL MOST PROBABLY SUPPORT DMDK OR AIADMK.SO THIS TIME THERE IS MORE CHANCES FOR AIADMK AND NO CHANCE FOR DMK

    With confidently, DMK President Dr. Karunanidhi will be the Chief Minister of TamilNadu. The Poll survey conducted by Loyola is one of the best because they go according to statistic i.e.,
    CHRISTIAN VOTES, MUSLIM VOTES, HINDHU VOTE, MALE VOTES, FEMALE VOTES, PRIVATE WORKERS VOTE, PUBLIC WORKERS VOTE. They have done a good project work. I will say again the Trend is going to change because of the Real Mother. Sonia is coming the TamilNadu today( 5/05/2006 ). Sonia and ManMohan Singh will increase atleast 5% of votes to DMK.
