Andhra Pradesh exit poll results 2019 of Lok Sabha Elections
Jagan Reddy, the head of YSR Congress, has a reason to smile today as at least three exit polls predict that he will overtake the Telugu Desam Party (TDP). While India Today predicts a clear win for YSR-C, a few others believe they will remain head to head. Some even foretell a fractured verdict in the state, as Reddy banks on his late father Y S Rajasekhar Reddy’s legacy to win votes this election.
TDP head Chandrababu Naidu broke away from BJP over special status to his state. BJP, which fielded its own candidates this time, might get only one or two seats in this state, polls predict.
Business Insider compiled surveys from five reputed sources — Republic-C Voter, NDTV - Hansa, Today's Chanakya, India Today-Axis, and TimesNow - VMR — amongst many others and the final number is an average of these five polls
