The overall trend emerging from multiple exit polls of the Lok Sabha election is that NDA is the position to form the government. This is in line with most opinion polls conducts prior to voting. Though there were differences on whether or not BJP would cross the halfway mark on its own in the Lok Sabha.
The polls forecast between 277 and 352 seats for the NDA with the BJP getting 227 to 291 seats. Two of them suggested the saffron party may actually cross its 2014 tally of 282. If these are proving correct, it would be the first instance since Congress in 1980 and 1984 of a single party winning a majority in two successive Lok Sabha polls.
