The BJP had bagged 41.06% votes in Chhattisgarh this election as compared to 40% in last polls. The Congress’ vote share also increased from 38.6% in last elections to 40.29%. The loser in the bargin was BSP.

In Rajasthan, where the BJP got a thumping majority, the party bagged 45.9% of the votes polled as compared to just 33.67% for the Congress. Five years ago, the BJP has bagged 34.3% votes and the Congress won by getting 36.8% votes.

In Madhya Pradesh, the BJP this time improved its vote share slightly from 37.6% in 2008 to about 38%. The BJP got 165 seats as compared to 58 for the Congress.

In Delhi, the BJP managed to emerge as the single largest party in Delhi Assembly despite its vote share falling to the lowest ever in the last 20 years. For that, the saffron party should thank Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which cut into more Congress votes than that of the BJP.

The Aam Aadmi Party got 27% votes, eating into the vote bank of the Congress and the BSP in the national capital. The AAP got huge support from the reserved seats, where the BSP was making a dent in the Congress’s traditional vote bank.
