Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is likely to adversely impact the prospects of the Congress more than any other political party in 21 constituencies in the Delhi-NCR and Mumbai-Navi Mumbai regions, as predicted by a snap poll conducted by ABP News-Nielsen.

From its tally of 17 in the 2009 elections, the Congress’ tally is predicted to come down to 3 in these constituencies, while the AAP is likely to win 8 seats.

The BJP’s tally is predicted to go up significantly from 2 in 2009 to 10 seats this time.

Narendra Modi scores over Kejriwal as the most preferred PM candidate, with overall votes of 48%. Congress scion Rahul Gandhi stands third in the race with an overall 16% votes.

According to the snap poll, in Mumbai and Thane, the Congress-NCP combine will get 3 seats in 2014 general elections, down from 8 seats in 2009.

BJP-Shiv Sena alliance is predicted to get 6 as compared to the single seat in 2009, while AAP likely to bag only one seat.

The survey predicts that the AAP will win six seats in Delhi, while the Congress is unlikely to open its account.

In the 2009 elections, the Congress had made a clean sweep of Delhi, winning all the seven seats.

The BJP is predicted to get 2 seats in NCR (Gurgaon and Faridabad), while the AAP is predicted to win the Ghaziabad seat (wresting it from the BSP).

The fieldwork for the ABP News-Nielsen Snap poll was done in the 21 Parliamentary constituencies in Delhi, NCR and Mumbai region.

The survey was conducted between January 10-12 and 2585 respondents were reviewed.
