Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Gujarat, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur will go to polls in
2012 and the exit polls and opinion poll results have started coming in already

The first opinion-exit polls have come in from Star news-Nielsen. They have predicted that SP will be the front runner in the 2012 UP elections and BSP will suffer a major setback. Congress is shown as improving a lot in several areas despite spate of scam and corruption cases against its ministers. Mayawati’s plan of dividing UP in 4 different states found a lot of support in public, especially in the areas of Purvanchal, but according to Star News, it is not goig to translate into votes for the party.

Overall the Opinion Poll suggests a coalition Govt in UP. Star News says BSP will get 120 seats (-86), SP 135 seats (+38), Congress 68 (+46) and BJP 65 (+14).
