    Exit polls predicted YSR Congress win in 111-135 seats 

    Some exit polls had given that the YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) could win 111-135 seats in 175-member Assembly, others predicted that the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) will win 90-111 seats. They predicted 1-5 seats for actor Pawan Kalyan’s Jana Sena, which made its electoral debut in 2019 genberal elections.

    All the exit polls predicted that both Congress and BJP will draw a blank. While a majority of exit polls had predicted victory for BJP-led NDA at the Centre, they had remained divided on the Assembly election results where voters are not voting to elect a prime ministerial candidate. The CSDS-Lokniti pre-poll survey had asked voters across the country a close-ended question: what they had kept in mind while voting, was it the party or the candidate? Around 17 percent chose none of the two options offered to them and said they voted for the prime ministerial candidate. Nearly one in every three BJP voters and one in four voters of its allies said that they had voted for Modi instead of the BJP or the local candidate the party had fielded from their respective constituencies.

    The exit polls in Andhra Pradesh had made mixed projections as to which party will form the next government in the state. While some predicted that the YSRCP Party will storm to power, others said the TDP will retain power. They painted a hazy picture of Andhra Pradesh Assembly, elections for which were held along with Lok Sabha seats on 11 April.
