How reliable are exit polls?
Exit polls have often proved to be unreliable in India. There have been several instances when they have predicted the verdict of an election incorrectly. In 2004, the exit polls wrongly predicted BJP-led NDA coalition winning again, while in 2009 they underestimated the Congress-led UPA’s seat share. However, exit polls conducted by TV channels in 2014 were mostly accurate as they predicted BJP and its allies would form the government.
