Through an exit poll, survey agencies try to gauge which way an election is headed, and predict which party or alliance is likely to win how many seats. However, exit polls have often gone wrong; therefore, these must be taken with a pinch of salt.

Uttar Pradesh, the country’s most populous state, sends 80 members to the 543-seat Lok Sabha, the highest among all states and Union territories. Here, too, the electoral battle was between the ruling NDA and the opposition INDIA bloc. The BJP contested 75 seats and gave five to its smaller allies. From the INDIA group, Samajwadi Party contested 62 seats, Congress 17 seats, and one seat went to the Trinamool Congress.

Some of the country’s most high-profile constituencies are in Uttar Pradesh: Varanasi (Narendra Modi), Lucknow (Rajnath Singh), Amethi (Smriti Irani), Rae Bareli (Rahul Gandhi), Kannauj (Akhilesh Yadav), and more. Another high-profile constituency is Gorakhpur, which gave BJP’s Yogi Adityanath five straight Lok Sabha terms, before he vacated the seat in March 2017 to take over as the state’s chief minister.

In the 2014 national polls in Uttar Pradesh, the NDA won 73 seats (BJP: 71, Apna Dal: two) and 64 (BJP: 62, Apna Dal: two) in 2019.
