Economy Tops Voters Minds

Leave a comment

The Lok Survey was covered by the Business Standard and the Indian Express on Thursday. Both articles highlight our findings on what issues will influence voters the most at the ballot box. The survey data showed that across the board economic issues were among the largest driving factors for all voters. Caste or identity politics was not shown to be a primary election issue for any but a small minority of voters.

An analysis of election issues is the subject of the second installment of our 4-part series on the Lok Survey results which will be published in the Times of India this Sunday so stay tuned for more detailed results and analysis. Read the first TOI piece here.

In the meantime, check out: “NDA makes gains as economy tops voters minds: Survey” from the Business Standard and “Economy tops voters’ minds, caste takes backseat” from the Indian Express.
