The BJP seems to have made big gains and AAP seems to have lost ground in Delhi, according to a CNN-IBN-Lokniti-CSDS national election tracker.

The BJP is expected to win 3-4 seats, AAP 2-3 and Congress 0-1.

A recent opinion poll conducted by ABP News & Nielsen predicted that the Aam Aadmi Party and BJP would bag three seats each out of the seven Lok Sabha constituencies in Delhi.

The CNN-IBN-Lokniti-CSDS projections on Thursday said BJP was likely to get 40 per cent of the votes and AAP just 29 per cent of the votes.

Congress is likely to get 22 per cent of the votes. BSP is expected to get 4 per cent and the others 5 per cent votes.

When it comes to Assembly elections, AAP is still ahead with 42 per cent backing and BJP is close behind with 36 per cent support.

The situation of the Congress is worsening and it is expected to get just 16 per cent votes in the assembly elections. BSP and others are expected to get just 3 per cent each in the assembly elections, if they are held today, the projections said.

In an alarming development for AAP, the young support base of the party seems to have moved towards BJP in Lok Sabha elections.

35 per cent of the voters in the age group of 18-25 years prefer BJP and 33 per cent of them still root for AAP.

In Lok Sabha preference, the Muslims have been split between AAP and Congress. BJP has overtaken AAP when it comes to Dalit votes.
