The poll survey finds anti-incumbency wave, as expected, looming large against Ashok Gehlot government and it is bound to hurt the ruling Congress party.
The survey gauged the mood of people on ground on topics ranging from voting for their preferred party & candidate to burning issues like price-rise, unemployment & crime against women in the state.

According to ABP-C-Voter Survey, Ashok Gehlot has emerged as the most favoured choice for CM with 35% electorate nodding in his favour while 25% people want to see Vasundhara Raje as the next Chief Minister of state.
