Not quite what the spokespersons say on TV


Either everybody is getting it wrong or everybody is getting it right. Or everybody is playing it safe.

This is the third table-top prediction by editors of The Times of India, presumably on the basis of on-the-ground reports from their bureaux.

The following is how the fortunes of the three major alliance have fluctuated in the three ToI surveys:

Congress + other UPA: 201 to 198 to 195.

BJP + other NDA: 195 to 176 to 187

Third Front: 82 to 109 to 111.

Others and independents: 65 to 60 to 50.
