Kejriwal leads in race for CM, says survey

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) got the fifth citywide poll survey done on Saturday. This time too, Arvind Kejriwal is ahead of other contenders in the chief ministerial race.

“Given a choice between Kejriwal, Sheila Dikshit and Harsh Vardhan, 39 per cent named Kejriwal, followed by 29 per cent for Dikshit and 26 per cent for Harsh Vardhan,” said Dhananjai Joshi, director, Cicero Associates and Consultants, the firm which, at the behest of AAP, surveyed a representative sample of the city’s electorate.

“Aam Aadmi Party support cuts across all segments of society but a little better among the young voters. Significantly, AAP leads among Dalits and has equalled the Congress among Muslims,” he adds.

The fifth and final wave of the survey was conducted on November 30.

The last survey by the party was carried out between November 18 and 21.

“The fourth and fifth wave of the survey followed the same design as the first and second wave. A total of 1,643 respondents were interviewed in the fifth wave and 3,247 in the fourth wave,” said an AAP spokesperson.

“The respondents were selected scientifically from the latest electoral rolls of 85 polling booths spread across 17 Assembly constituencies. All interviews were conducted face-to-face using a standard-structured questionnaire and a constituency specific dummy ballot was used for voting questions,” added the spokesperson.
