New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party is projected to touch the magical mark required for a simple majority by winning 36 seats in the 70-seat Delhi assembly, with the Aam Aadmi Party closely on its heels with 31 seats, says the latest India TV-CVoter opinion poll conducted in the last week of January.
The opinion poll is based on a Total Tracking Poll Sample Size of 10,862 respondents, says CVoter that conducted the survey.
All these respondents were interviewed in the fourth week of January, according to the pollsters.
The Congress, which ruled Delhi for 15 years at a stretch, may find its tally reduced from eight last time to merely two this time, with 'Others' which include small parties and independents, winning the sole remaining seat.
In the December 2013 assembly polls, BJP had won 31 seats, AAP 28, Congress 8 and Others 3.
In vote share projections, BJP may get 44 pc votes, closely followed by AAP with 43 pc, Congress with 8 pc, and 'Others' 5 pc.
