Priyanka Gandhi’s campaign for her brother seems to be having a positive impact for Rahul Gandhi, at least on social media. After a long time, the Gandhi scion has surged ahead of BJP’s PM nominee Narendra Modi with regard to the positive sentiment across social media on May 2. He is, however, still behind Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener Arvind Kejriwal.
Even as Kejriwal leads the race in this aspect with 60 per cent positive mentions about him, Rahul is an extremely close second at 59 per cent, leaving Modi to lag behind with just 50 per cent positive mentions about him, as per our Social Map, powered by Frrole.
In another interesting finding, our poll on which regional leader would hold the key to government formation after May 16 suggests that Trinamool Congress chief and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee holds the card to government formation.
As many as 63.6 per cent of the voters believe that Mamata will play a crucial role after the elections while 36.4 per cent feel that AIADMK supremo and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa may also be seen in a major role post May 16. Interestingly, none of the voters feel that BSP chief Mayawati has a role to play in the next government formation.
