    How accurate are exit polls?

    Exit polls have not always been accurate as they are based on information shared by voters soon after they cast their votes on the assumption that they are telling the truth. However, they present some sort of picture on who's placed where ahead of the counting of votes on 23 May. Pollsters will attempt to answer questions like which state voted for whom or who will come to power or whether Narendra Modi will return as the prime minister for the second consecutive term or how well did TMC fared in these elections in comparison to challenger BJP. However, all of these analyses are only predictions and estimate how the country's electorate has voted.

As voting in the 2019 Lok Sabha election concludes Sunday, Today's Chanakya is set to release its predictions after six pm.  All exit polls in 2014 did predict that the NDA under the leadership of Narendra Modi would become the single-largest coalition. However, they failed to predict the scale and intensity of the victory. Not only did they underestimate the BJP but also overestimate the seat tally for the Congress-led UPA.

 Chanakya Exit Poll Full Results 2019: Pollster predicts 350 seats for NDA,  95 seats for UPA

Of the six main pollsters in 2014, the News24-Chanakya proved to be the most accurate. The News24-Chanakya poll predicted 340 seats for the NDA while the coalition won 336 seats. The India TV-C Voter exit poll too gave a simple majority to the NDA – 289 seats. Two other exit polls — India Today-Cicero and CNN-IBN CSDS — too gave the most number of seats to the NDA. However, their tallies fell just short of the halfway mark of 272. While the India Today-Cicero exit poll gave a minimum of 261 seats (plus or minus 11 seats) to the NDA, CNN-IBN-CSDS poll gave a minimum of 270 seats to the alliance. On the other hand, exit polls did predict the defeat of the UPA but failed to predict the scale of the debacle.

In fact, the Times Now-ORG India exit poll predicted 148 seats for the UPA. ABP News-Nielsen gave 97 seats to the Congress-led alliance while News24-Chanakya gave only 70 seats. Ultimately, Congress won a paltry 44 seats in Parliament.
