Some important Disclaimers:

Sample size –

Most surveys in India end up interviewing less than 0.05% of voters. Our sample size was 1545 in total which is more than the sample size 915(approx).

Only Registered Voters –

Only those whose opinions were registered were voters. There were % of the people who took this opinion poll but did not opine as they were not registered, Voters

Internet savvy people bias –

As this was an Internet-based poll, only those persons who were Internet savvy voted hence this is a big limitation.

Margin of Error – As the responses were not gathered in person like other opinion polls, there can be a margin of error.

But one has to understand that we aren’t predicting seats, we are just trying to get a sense of the voters and their alignment with a political party and what is there in their mind.
