The Hindu CSDS-Lokniti Post-Poll Survey

The outcome of the general election of 2019 is historic in more ways than one. While it is a vote for a second term for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government, it also indicates that alliance arithmetic by itself does not guarantee a victory. This election saw a near presidential-style electoral campaign, making personal leadership the central focus. This placed the BJP and the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) at a decisive advantage and left the United Progressive Alliance and other State-based parties finding themselves on the back foot. This election is also a story of the success of one strategy of alliance formation over the other.

Here are a series of stories by CSDS-Lokniti explanining how the BJP, and in turn, Prime Minister-elect Narendra Modi performed across the country in the now-concluded Lok Sabha Elections.
