    If a general election were to be held now, the non-UPA, non-NDA parties will have an edge, says a Nation Poll conducted in January 2012.

    The Congress, which has 206 seats in the Lok Sabha, will manage just 110 seats and the BJP may improve its tally to 140 seats from 116 seats in 2009.

    The survey adds that non-UPA, non-NDA parties will get 180 to 190 seats. Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi has emerged as the 'popular choice' for the post of Prime Minister. He beats Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi, who was the most preferred in 2011.

    The popularity of PM Manmohan Singh, centre, and Rahul Gandhi has plummeted since

    Gujarat state Chief Minister Narendra Modi has seen his confidence with voters increase

    As many as 24 per cent respondents favoured Modi as PM while 17 per cent wanted Rahul to take over the top post. Rahul had garnered 29 per cent votes in August 2010 and 20 per cent in January 2011.

    Nitish Kumar 5 (5)
    Mayawati 4 (4)

    Modi, on the other hand, has improved his position. Just 9 per cent participants voted for him in August 2010 and 12 per cent in January 2011.

    According to the forecast, if general elections were to be held today, the UPA would get between 168 and 178 seats, with Congress managing only 110 seats.

    It would be the lowest tally ever for the Congress. Thirty-seven per cent of respondents blame that PM Manmohan as directly responsible for the price rise compared with finance minister Pranab Mukherjee (24%) and agriculture minister Sharad Pawar (16%).

    Only 26 per cent of participants believe that the Congress is the best party to address the problems of poverty and unemployment.

    Thirty-one per cent believe the BJP will be better for the poor, and 35 per cent will trust other parties.

    When asked who they would vote for if both Anna Hazare and Rahul Gandhi were to contest from their constituency, 60 per cent favoured Hazare and only 24 per cent picked Rahul.

    The Mood of the Nation Poll is based on a survey across 19 states, with a sample size of 12,648 voters drawn from 98 randomly selected parliamentary constituencies.

    The states covered in the survey account for 514 of the 543 Lok Sabha constituencies. The study was done between December 28, 2011 and January 12, 2012.
