According to the poll findings, the BJP could win 61-71 seats in the 90-member Chhattisgarh assembly. In 2008, the BJP won 50 seats in Chhattisgarh.

The poll, conducted for CNN IBN-Week by the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies (CSDS), also predicted a six percent increase in the BJP vote percentage, indicating that despite several setbacks, the popularity of chief minister Raman Singh has not waned. 

It indicated the Congress tally in the Naxal-violence affected state could drop to 16-24 seats from the existing 38.  Voting in Chhattisgarh will take place on November 11 and 19.

In neighbouring Madhya Pradesh, which goes to the polls on November 25, the poll has predicted another victory for chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan. It predicts that the BJP is likely to win between 148-160 seats in the 230-member assembly. The Congress is expected to get between 52-62 seats.

The channel will telecast similar polls for poll-bound states Rajasthan and Delhi later this week.
