The TMCs share would shrink from 40% to 37%, while the Left is set to suffer a major jolt as its vote share may fall from 30% to 17%, the survey shows.

In Odisha, Naveen Patnaik-led BJD is also expected to shrink from 45% to 37% in terms of vote share, while the BJP will double its vote share, registering whopping increase from 21% to 42%. While Congress may only manage to stand at a distant third with 13% vote share.

In terms of personal popularity, Prime Minister Narendra Modi tops the charts with almost 60% votes, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi stands at a distant second with 11%, while Arvind Kejriwal gets 3.64%.
