Majority of lawyers want BJP to win, then AAP in LI poll (as Cong ties last with NOTA)

Legally India’s informal online poll from last week saw 629 readers cast their virtual vote when asked: Who do you want as your next government.

The BJP garnered a massive 61 per cent of lawyers’ votes.

However, surprisingly the fledgling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), found a lot of support from lawyer readers.

AAP picked up 19 per cent of votes, relegating Congress to distant also-ran in third place.

And, somewhat tragically for India’s oldest democratic party, Congress found itself tied at 9.38 per cent with None of the Above (NOTA) – an option introduced for the first time in these national elections for voters unhappy with all of the choices available.

The poll, while obviously unscientific, did implement basic dual vote prevention mechanisms, and the ratios by each party remained fairly steady throughout the last 6 days of voting (though Congress was behind NOTA at the beginning of the poll).
