The survey was conducted across 28 cities with 9000 respondents.

For the BJP, Narendra Modi is the clear favourite for PM's post among the voters with 57% wishing he becomes PM candidate while only 11% want Advani in that role and 9% want to see Sushma Swaraj as PM. For the Congress party, Rahul is the clear favourite with 39% preferring him as PM candidate while only 16% want Manmohan back as PM.

But when compared to Mighty Modi, Rahul Gandhi stands no chance according to the survey. While 48% want to see Modi as PM only 18% want Rahul for that post.

23rd March '2009:

One of the first surveys to come out for the Lok Sabha polls, the Star News-Nielsen survey, predicts that the Congress led UPA could win upto 257 Lok sabha seats. The BJP led coalition is predicted to achieve 184 seats, while the third front will remain third with 96 seats. For a clean majority, an alliance would need 272 seats, so as per this survey, UPA would be left short by 15 seats.

However, the UPA tally includes the now estranged allies and current UPA partners, Samajwadi Party, LJP and RJD. If the numbers for these three are reduced, the UPA led alliance will be reduced to 210. Although, as per comon perception, no matter how many differences occur between the Congress and these three parties, if after the election Congress requires thier support to form the Govt, they'd surely get it in the name of forming a "secular Government". Many believe the current tactics by RJD, LJP and SP as arm twisting measures, so that after the elections, if UPA wins, they can achieve a lot more than their due recognitions.

A lot of time is still left for the elections to start, and newer poll alliances and break-ups will change the current tallies for sure.
