Advantage DMK: Week / C-Voter Opinion Poll

News magazine 'The Week' in conjunction with C-Voter released an opinion poll for the forthcoming assembly election yesterday. They predicted victory for the DMK led DPA allaince. According to the forcast, the DPA alliance is expected to get between 130-138 seats and the ADMK led DPF alliance is expected to get 87-95 seats. In terms of vote share, the DPA is expected to get 45% of the popular vote and the DPF 42%. According to the survey, more people prefer Karunanidhi to Jayalalitha as the next Chief Minister. People also don't believe Vaiko's switch from the DMK to ADMK alliance will have any great impact. I am not sure about the track record of previous Week / C-Voters opinion polls. But, the results of this survey look realistic. The results seem to indicate strongly that for the first time ever there will be a coalition government in the state.

Week / C-Voter Opinion Poll

DMK +- 130-138
ADMK+ – 87-95
Others – 5-13

    I think that the opinion poll may truly reflect the current trend in Tamil Nadu. We have to believe this from the acceptance of all the DMK’s assurances by the people and the recent announcements by Jayalalitha to copy the DMK’s assurances.

    DMK alliance will surely get absolute majority as per the new trend.

    Vaiko weakened AIDMK alliance instead of strengthening it.

    Jayalalitha’s after thought promises boomaranged on her and further weakened her side.

    i think that the ADMK will win narrowly. There is no wave,last minute swings can happen and favor either of the parties.

    too close we may have to wait and see

    Whether it is DMK or AIADMK or even a hung assembly (the third is going to be most likely), the honest tax payers’ money are going to be doled out by way of free rice, free colour TV, free gas stove, free land etc. The honest tax payer will pay tax and the money will never be used for infrastructure development. You pay tax and ride on pot holes, stay without electricity or on low voltage, run around for water…….After all the tax payer should pay taxes and the government whosoever in power has the right to dole out the tax collections to their vote bank. The politicians account crores of their wealth as declarations; are they willing to spend atleast lacs from their personal resources to provide freebies.

    If DMK come to power we can see lot of developement activities such as construction of over bridges,bus stands,over head water tanks in each villages, laying of good roads, Proper functioning of Uzgavar Shandai and other Govt Schemes.Two Eggs will help Poultry Industry.DMK Govt is Good for
    GOVT Servents,
    farmers ( Waival of life long loan) ,
    Teachers ( Filling up of lot of vacancies),
    Merchents9 Removal of Multri-Entry Tax and bringing back Single entry tax),
    Students ( Expences for College Education will be reduced),
    Wemen( Marriage & Marernity Expences will be given by Govt )
    Youth ( Employment oppurtunities)
    Hence the people decided to vote DMK

    @senthil kumaran

    The deccan chronicle poll predicts a narrow win for admk. I agree completely with you that there is no pro or anti wave against jayalalitha. a close election is on the cards.

    @jagannaths

    The desperation of admk and dmk has led to them making numerous unkeepable promises. A coalition govt will not be good for our state in my opinion. lets wait till may 11th to see what happens.

    I THINK AIADMK HAS BETTER CHANCE AND PEOPLE ARE UNHAPPY WITH MARAN ENTERING THE POLICTICS BIG WAY

    I dont think this opinion poll results are reliable… It’s clear from media’s reports that people in tamil nadu are more happy and satisfied with their current govt. Also DMK belives that getting colour tv is the major problem for the poor and not hunger or shelter… People really feel bad abt this. SO I THINK ADMK ALLIANCE WILL HAVE A DECENT VICTORY OVER THEIR COUNTERPARTS

    I wonder how many of us going to vote! Anyway, Jagan’s concern is very much legitimate. The tax payer should realize the benefit. In recent Deccan Herald’s interview MK has addressed this. He has told that the freebies are for capturing the power. These promises can be fulfilled with in a year and the government will be able to concentrate on developing the infrastructure and promoting industries. By comparing the development! activities done by the ADMK government during the last 5 years, the previous DMK government and the present central government, one can make it out easily that the DMK government is more infrastructure friendly. For further information on the massive NH development programs for Tamilnadu by the Central government, check http://www.nhai.org. Please remember that many of these programs were proposed after T.R.Balu took charge.

    For Chennai city:
    4 Flyovers in Chennai including Kathipara and Koyambedu:
    Improvement of Access of GQ within Chennai City including Construction of 4 grade Separators
    Chennai Bypass Phase II
    Chennai – Ennore Express Way SR 7 SPV Tamil Nadu

    4 laning projects for rest of Tamilnadu:
    Tindivanam – Trichy

    Dindigul-Trichy
    Kerla/TN Border – Kanyakumari
    Krishnagiri-Thiruvannamalai

    I THINK THE TOTAL SEATS PROJECTED FOR DMK ALLIANCE IS VERY LESS AND THEY MAY GET AROUND 170 TO 180 SEATS CONSIDERING THE ARITHMATIC WORKING IN ITS FAVOUR

    This polls are fabricated by dayanidhi maran.

    The entire equation changed when ADMK after 1 week of telling that it is impossible to give rice for Rs 2 offered 10 kilos free

    i think DMK+ will win in 180+ seats.

  16. Rajan on

    it is obvious that there will be no long term vision based development occurs here.
    let any one rule, on our part let us be honest to the government & try to become good state atleast after 100 years.

  17. Eshwar S on

    Mr. Rajan, I wouldn’t be so pesimestic. While development vision might not be layed out by our government, but there can always private citizens initiatives for development…
