In 2019, after being in power for 5 years, Narendra Modi and his political party went into for polls once again. After five years of anti-incumbency, the political pundits hoped BJP to emerge as the single largest party but none expected it to win a majority on its win. But the election result came as a shock for all. Bhartiya Janata Party won the election and this time with a much bigger mandate. On its own, Narendra Modi-led BJP won 303 seats and the BJP lead coalition NDA (National Democratic Alliance) won 353 seats. Rahul Gandhi-led Congress was once again decimated. They managed to win only 52 seats on its. BJP managed to improve their vote share too, from 31% in 2014, BJP now got a 37.36% vote share.

For Narendra Modi and his party, Bhartiya Janata Party, the next challenge will be the 2024 Lok Sabha election. Going into the election, Modi will have 10 years of anti-incumbency behind him. His party will be defending 10 years of work done by Narendra Modi. Therefore, will Narendra Modi Win Record 3rd Term?

Lok Sabha 2024 Opinion Polls: Crowd’s Opinion

Lok Sabha 2024 Opinion Poll: Crowd’s Prediction

Lok Sabha 2014 and 2019 was a fight between Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi. But Rahul Gandhi has not been able to pose any threat to the political dominance of Narendra Modi. For the 2024 Lok Sabha election, state leaders like Mamata Banerjee, and Telangana CM K Chandrashekar Rao have expressed their willingness to lead the opposition front in 2024.

For Rahul Gandhi, before the 2024 Lok Sabha campaign kicks off, he will have a couple of state elections to prove his might. 4 important state elections of Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Chattishgarh and Rajasthan will be a litmus test for Mr. Gandhi. In all the four states, Congress had formed their Government after the election but after the defection of their MLAs, they lost Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh.

If Congress is able to win all the four states again, it will veto the leadership of Rahul Gandhi and the opposition parties would be bound to back him for 2024 Opposition leadership. However, as of now, Mr. Gandhi’s future as the main opposition leader looks bleak. Our latest survey shows that 55% of the respondents believe, Rahul Gandhi will opt out as PM Candidate in 2024 while 31% believe that Rahul Gandhi will be the opposition’s PM candidate in 2024.

However, our survey on probable Prime Minister Candidate of the opposition has Rahul Gandhi ahead of the rest of the leaders. Over 40% of the respondents believe that Rahul Gandhi should be the opposition’s PM Candidate. Arvind Kejriwal is 2nd on the list with Mamata Banerjee at a distant third.

Note: These are our initial survey results, the preference may change as we move ahead.

Indian Election Prediction 2024: Has Any Leader Won Record 3rd Term?

Before Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister of India, India had 13 Prime Ministers. However, only two Prime Ministers have been elected for three consecutive terms. The first one was the first Prime Minister of India Jawahar Lal Nehru and the second one was his daughter Indira Gandhi. None other than Nehru and Indira Gandhi have been able to win more than 2 consecutive terms.

Jawahar Lal Nehru won the 4th term but was unable to complete his 4th term as he died during his 4th tenure as Prime Minister of India.

Indian Election Prediction 2024: What are the Factors Favoring Narendra Modi for 2024 Re-election?

The factors favoring Narendra Modi’s re-election in 2024 are:

  • TINA (There Is No Alternative)

The TINA factor has been one of the major factors that helped Narendra Modi cruise through the 2019 Lok Sabha election. The same seems to be turning out to be a major factor that may help Narendra Modi win the consecutive 3rd. As of now, the public is yet to be convinced by any of the opposition faces who could be an alternative to Narendra Modi in 2024.

  • Divided Opposition

After the 2014 Lok Sabha election, there have been talks about opposition unity. But the opposition unity has been more hype than reality. In 2019, a Mahagathbandan was formed to take on Narendra Modi and his party BJP. But by the time the Lok Sabha election in 2019 came, the Mahagathbandan looked more like an alliance between a few parties than the mega opposition coalition. The same turned out to be true even for the 2024 Lok Sabha. The opposition has more faces who are eyeing the Prime Minister’s chair and none want to compromise despite all having the same common enemy, Narendra Modi.

Lok Sabha 2024 Opinion Poll
  • Funding

The other main factor that the opposition in India lacks is funding. BJP is not short of funds and with power in major states of India, they can contest any election with a huge might. The opposition on the other hand does not have enough funds to take on the mighty BJP. Though they may show the intent of defeating Narendra Modi and the BJP, the funding issue will keep their campaigning to limited reach and BJP will be able to spread their message to the majority and the message will be loud and clear.

Indian Election Prediction 2024: What is the Prediction for the 2024 Lok Sabha election?

There has been no opinion poll or prediction for the 2024 Lok Sabha election therefore it would be too early to say who is going to win the Lok Sabha election. However, several indicators point toward the return of the Narendra Modi Government in 2024. One such indicator is the state election. It is said that the road to 7 Lok Kalyan Marg goes through Lucknow. Recently an election was held in Uttar Pradesh along with 4 other states. Uttar Pradesh is the largest state in terms of population in India and it sends massive 80 Lok Sabha members.

Since 2017 BJP has been in power in Uttar Pradesh. The opposition hoped to topple the BJP government in the 2022 Vidhan Sabha election so that they would get a major boost for the 2024 Lok Sabha election. However, despite all the hypes, the opposition claims fell flat and BJP on its own won the majority. Added to it, BJP retained the states of Uttarakhand, Manipur, and Goa too.

Another indicator of Modi’s return in 2024 is the recently concluded Presidential election. The opposition came up with a joint candidate to take on BJP’s candidate. However, BJP and NDA despite being short of a majority on their own were able to get over 60% support for their candidate, Draupadi Murmu. The opposition unity fell flat as many from the opposition voted in favor of the NDA candidate.

Indian Election Prediction 2024: Conclusion

The 2024 Lok Sabha election is still two years from now and several state elections are to take place before it. If the opposition is to defeat Narendra Modi and BJP in the 2024 Lok Sabha election they will have to win most of the upcoming Vidhan Sabha election. The state that will go for election before the 2024 Lok Sabha election in Gujarat, Himachal, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chattisgarh, Tripura, Nagaland, and Meghalaya. Barring Rajasthan and Chattisgarh, the rest of the states have either BJP government or a BJP coalition government. The opposition needs to win a maximum of these states in order to keep their hopes high for the 2024 Lok Sabha election.

Therefore, considering the several factors, it can be said that Narendra Modi may be able to return to power once again unless the opposition comes together and place a strong face against him.
