Exit polls failed… Axis My India CEO Pradeep Gupta started crying in the middle of the show


New Delhi : Exit polls have completely failed in the Lok Sabha elections. The results of the Lok Sabha elections have rejected the exit polls. Almost all exit polls had predicted that BJP would get more than 350 seats. In the actual results, BJP does not even seem to get a majority on its own. MD Pradeep Gupta of exit poll agency Axis My India had predicted that BJP would get more than 400 seats. When the election results came, Pradeep Gupta started crying in the middle of the show. Pradeep Gupta was telling in the live show where the exit poll went wrong. He also apologized for the wrong prediction but started crying in the end.

There was a lot of criticism on social media as well

Earlier, Pradeep Gupta was trolled a lot on social media regarding the exit polls. A day before the results, Pradeep had said that 65 out of our 69 exit polls are correct. He also took a dig at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for calling the exit polls 'Modi Media Poll' and 'Imaginary Poll'. Pradeep Gupta had said that this is like sour grapes.

How effective was the 'Modi factor' in the Lok Sabha elections, understand the whole thing from 'Election Chanakya'

Rahul is not seen as a brand

Pradeep Gupta had said that 'Rahul Gandhi or Congress has contested the elections for Bharat Gathbandhan. Regional parties have contested elections in different areas like Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Bihar, Jharkhand. Rahul Gandhi is not seen as a brand, in Karnataka, Telangana, Himachal Pradesh where Congress is in power, Congress voters do not vote in the name of Rahul Gandhi, rather the Congress government there asks for votes on the basis of facilities and arrangements and the local people vote on this.'

Axis My India exit poll failed completely, why did Pradeep Gupta start trending on social media

What was in the Axis My India Survey

In the exit poll of Axis My India, NDA was predicted to get 361-401 seats. In Gupta's exit poll, it was predicted that the 'Bharat' alliance will have to be satisfied with 131-166 seats. When the election results came, the picture was completely opposite. BJP seems to be far from the majority figure on its own.
