Several pre-poll surveys conducted so far have predicted a comfortably victory for the BJP in Uttar Pradesh. However, they have also estimated a major loss in seat share for the ruling party which might come as a direct gain for the Samajwadi Party. The Congress, on the other hand, is feared to reach the double-digit mark. 

The polls in the five states, particularly Uttar Pradesh, will set the stage for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections and also give the first indication towards whether the ‘Modi Magic’ continues to play the key factor behind the BJP’s continuous poll victories since 2014.
