Only in the two Telugu States, the CMs are ahead (last 30 days). Vijayan, Kejriwal and Mamata perform relatively closer to the PM than most other CMs.
The BJP CM who performs the best versus the PM is Shivraj Chouhan, CM of Madhya Pradesh.
The big news for BJP is PM’s performance in Tamil Nadu where the PM is massively ahead. However, one must note that this is one the weakest State for the PM and him being ahead is a function of the local CM Edappadi Palaniswami’s weakness. This does not augur well for the AIADMK next year.
