Understanding the interplay of overlapping socioeconomic cleavages in India which is one of the world’s most demographically diversified countries and high political volatility in a multiparty system presents significant challenges for anyone trying to predict election outcomes. Furthermore, contrary to popular belief, opinion poll-based election studies are not only about picking likely winners and computing margins of victory/defeat, but also about providing a nuanced understanding of the various factors that go into determining an election’s verdict – why people voted for the way they did, the change in public opinion, and so on. In this article, we will understand the importance of Political Surveys.

Electoral wars are no longer fought solely based on contribution and politics, but also on the basis of a statistical study of voting patterns. Campaigns must be founded on sound decisions based on data gathered on the ground level.

Surveys based on political research are equally useful at the business or organizational level. Companies that engage in lobbying and campaigning must be able to accurately assess a candidate’s position on a specific topic and the likelihood of that candidate winning.

Nobody wants to park their money on the losing party. Organizations need to make sure their political donations go to the right people.

The endorsement of an unpopular candidate might harm the organization’s image, and cause unwanted publicity.

Regardless of the objective of the political research survey, it must be conducted in such a way that the information obtained is accurate.

Types of political surveys

Now that everything is going digital, it’s more important than ever to be prepared. It is feasible to connect with more people in less time via social media.

    • What are pre-polls?


Pre-polls are usually conducted a few weeks or days before the election. they can provide us a snapshot of voter preferences at the time, as well as trends and, if the trend persists, the anticipated outcome. Given the fact that a large percentage of the population makes up their the mind only a few days before the election, it’s no wonder that pre-poll projections rarely match actual results.

  • What is an Exit Poll?

    When a voter exits the polling station after casting his vote, the surveyors ask him which party he voted for this type of survey is known as an exit poll. Amid this debate over opinion polls and exit polls, the voter makes his final decision which maybe different from their choice in opinion polls.
