New Delhi: Sixty-three percent Delhiites would vote for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) if the state assembly polls were held tomorrow, a survey revealed here Monday.

A total 51 percent of the city's electorate also said they would vote for the AAP if general elections were held tomorrow.

The ABP News-Nielsen opinion poll, conducted Jan 25 and 26, interviewed over 1,500 people. It said: "Almost two-thirds majority, 63 percent of respondents surveyed said they will vote for the AAP if Delhi Vidhan Sabha elections were held tomorrow."

The survey said 55 percent Delhiites felt that Delhi Law Minister Somnath Bharti's action against an alleged "sex and drugs ring" that involved African women would have a negative impact on the AAP's image though 40 percent felt otherwise.

Reacting to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's subsequent dharna (sit-in) demanding action against policemen who allegedly did not cooperate with Bharti during the raid, 50 percent said it was not right as against 48 percent who justified the over 30-hour roadside protest.

According to the opinion poll, the majority of the respondents (55 percent) rated overall performance of the chief minister in the last one month "very good" or "good" with a mean score of 3.5 which implies an above-average performance. Twelve percent rated his performance as "poor" and four percent "very poor".

When asked to vote for a party in the Lok Sabha polls, 51 percent said they would vote for the AAP if general elections were held tomorrow.

However, BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi continues to be the most popular candidate to lead the nation.

Fifty percent Delhiites said they wanted Modi as prime minister while 37 percent chose Kejriwal and 10 percent preferred Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi.

"It would appear that 14 percent of those who said they would vote for AAP in the Lok Sabha elections, would prefer someone other than Kejriwal as PM," said the survey.
