Lokniti survey 

  • According to the CSDS-Lokniti pre-poll survey 2024 findings, unemployment and price rise are the issues of most concern to prospective voters

  • In a country with a large youth population and a relatively low per capita income, the lack of sufficient jobs and the persistence of high inflation should be major issues of concern. 

  • The survey also reveals that more than half the respondents felt that corruption had increased in the last five years.

  • While the poll survey had not focused on State-level dynamics, recent Assembly elections have shown a sharpening of the north-south political divide, with the BJP unable to sway the south on socio-cultural issues as much as it is able to do so in the Hindi heartland and other areas. 

  • That close to half the respondents laid out livelihood issues as key concerns should provide an opportunity for the political messaging across the country to be a contest of ideas — about which political group offers the best deal in addressing these concerns
