Kerala Assembly Election 2021 Exit Poll Live Updates: The wait is over as the exit poll for Kerala is here. The LDF led by Pinarayi Vijayan is all set to retain power in the state. If India Today-Axis Exit Poll is to be believed, the LDF is expected to win around 104-120 seats, UDF to win 20-36 seats, BJP to bag around 0-2 seats and 0-2 seats may go to others. The state has been consistent with its selection in the last four decades as it has been electing alternatively between the LDF and the UDF. The state had voted in a single-phase poll on April 6 for the 140 member assembly.
While LDF was expecting to see a similar trend just like the opinion polls, the Congress-led UDF will try to regain power in the state. It may be recalled that most of the opinion polls had given a clear lead to the Pinarayi Vijayan-led LDF government. If Mathrubhumi–CVoter survey is to be believed, the LDF may get around 73–83 seats while the UDF may bag around 56–66 seats. The BJP is expected to win just one seat. The Manorama–VMR survey was no different. It had predicted 77–82 seats for the LDF, 54–59 for the UDF and 0-3 seats for the saffron party. Times Now–CVoter Opinion poll also gave a decisive lead to the LDF in the 140 member assembly. It predicted 77 seats for the LDF, 62 for the UDF and just one for the BJP. If ABP News–CVoter survey is to be believed, the CPI-M led LDF may get somewhere around 77–85 seats while the UDF may bag 54–62 seats while the BJP may get 0–2 seats.
