The tables appear to be turning in favour of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) as the Delhi assembly election draws closer. The difference is Kiran Bedi, the former police officer who is now the BJP’s campaign face.

Instavaani asked the public if they approved of the BJP’s new chief ministerial candidate. A majority, 65%, said they approve of the new entrant, 28% disapprove and 7% have no opinion. Asked if the move would win the party their votes, 60% said they are likely to vote for the BJP because Bedi is the chief ministerial candidate, 24% said that they are less likely to do so and 16% said Bedi’s entrance has not influenced their choice.

InstaVaani asked respondents which party they would vote for if the polls were to be held today. In a 15 January poll, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) was slightly ahead, with 49% saying Arvind Kejriwal’s party would win this election. Now 66% of the respondents polled say that if the elections were to be held today, their vote would go to the BJP, 27% said they would vote for AAP, 5% opted for the Congress and 2% for others.
