New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party on Friday released numbers of its internal survey.
Citing his party`s third survey report, political scientist Yogendra Yadav said 32 percent people prefer AAP in Delhi, 28 percent Congress and 24 percent BJP.
The survey, conducted between September 05 and October 05, shows that AAP is trailing in 12 seats but not by a large margin.
The Kejriwal-led party claimed it was leading with more than 10 percent votes in 33 constituencies, less than 10 percent in 17, in four they had an marginal edge of five percent while in 12 less than five percent.
"If Congress was the biggest loser between the first and the second wave of the survey, the BJP was the real loser between the second and the third wave," he said.
"We will be able to recover in the next 50 days in the seats on which we are trailing," said Yadav.
"We are clearly ahead in 17 seats, marginally ahead in four seats."
“The most important take away is that almost all pre-poll surveys show that the AAP is getting a minimum of 25% vote share. Delhi elections are no longer a bipolar fight,” Yadav told reporters.
The survey says "Arvind Kejriwal at 36 percent continues to be way ahead of Shiela Dikshit at 30 percent and Vijay Goel at 23 percent in popular preference for the next Chief Minister."
Raw data will be uploaded on the AAP website within two hours, added Yadav.
The survey, conducted in association with a consultancy firm called Cicero Associates, was conducted in all the 70 constituencies in Delhi.
“The survey, apart from some variations, shows that AAP is steadily moving forward among all sections of society. Only that party wins which has support from all sections,” AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal told reporters.
The survey also claims that AAP fares batter among young voters. It claims to get 17% of Muslim votes and 21% of Dalit votes.
The survey shows drinking water is the biggest issue for Delhi voters, followed by environmental cleanliness.
