Uttar Pradesh Opinion Polls 2022 average: BJP to win 244 seats
Who will win UP Election 2022? As per the latest Uttar Pradesh Assembly Election Opinion Polls 2022, the average prediction for BJP is 244 seats, SP is 112 seats and BSP is 27 seats

The 2022 Uttar Pradesh Election is likely to be held between February and March of 2022. Since independence, no Chief Minister in Uttar Pradesh has been voted back to power after completing 5 years in power. So far, only 4 CMs completed 5 or nearly 5 years in power

  • GB Pant (Was re-elected in 1952 but the previous elections were in pre-independence period)
  • Sampuranand (Faced an election after two and half years and was re-elected)
  • Mayawati
  • Akhilesh Yadav

CM Yogi Adityanath is highly likely to complete 5 years in the next 5-6 months. The question is, will he break the jinx and return as Chief Minister after the next election?

Uttar Pradesh Opinion Poll 2022: Latest UP Assembly Election 2022 Opinion Polls

The latest opinion polls give BJP a huge advantage over the other parties.

  • The lowest prediction for the BJP is 203 while the maximum is 283 seats. In 2017, BJP alone won 312 seats while its alliance partners won a further 10 seats
  • As far as the opposition is concerned, SP has a prediction range of 62 and 137 while BSP is between 14 and 48 seats

The gap between BJP and the opposition is so huge that it would be quite a surprise if the SP or BSP can beat BJP.

What we have heard is that SP internals (not independently confirmed) show SP at 200+. SP won 229 seats in 2017.  Here are the estimates of various agencies - 


Bharatiya Janata

As we saw in various elections recently, opinion polls are not very accurate. Opinion polls 6 months before the election are even less accurate. 

Uttar Pradesh Opinion Poll 2022: Latest UP Assembly Election 2022 Vote Share

In terms of vote share, the BJP predicted range is between 35 and 42%. The NDA won about 41% share in 2017. SP is steady at 30%. Even in 2017, SP won about 29% of the vote.

Uttar Pradesh Opinion Poll 2022: 3 Reasons why the Opposition parties will struggle to beat the BJP

1. While some regard CM Adityanath as a polarizing figure, he has enjoyed strong support amongst voters in the state. Apart from periodic surveys which show high satisfaction with the CM, the BJP has performed well even in the 2019 election and 2021-22 local elections.

2. None of the current Opposition parties have won anywhere near 35% of the vote in the last 30 years. This is because of the narrow caste and demographic base that each of SP, BSP and Congress target. Over the last 5 years, all 3 parties have failed to develop leadership that represents the various shades of the UP population

3. Another way to look at it is through a mix of Leadership development, OBC and even tokenism, BJP has taken large proportions of the OBC and Upper caste voters along with them. The SP or BSP have failed to find an issue (so far atleast) that will make these voters to abandon the BJP. 

For example, the UP per capita GDP (Constant currency) has grown by less than 1% in the last 4 years (2017 to 2021), the much hated (by BJP supporters) Mamata grew Bengal per capita by a whopping 22%. Such stark performance gaps have made ZERO dent on the popularity of CM Yogi Adityanath, a reflection how poorly the Oppositiion has organised themselves over the last 5 years. 

Uttar Pradesh Opinion Poll 2022: The Caste Game

Caste distribution in Uttar Pradesh is crucial in UP. BJP performs well on Key caste blocks

BJP Dominated blocks

  • Brahmins - 9-11% share - Key rivals - Congress, BSP
  • Rajputs - 7-8% share
  • Other UCs including Jats, Vaishyas, Baniyas - 5% share - Key rivals - Congress, SP, RLD
  • Total OBC population -42-45%
  • OBC population excluding Yadavs - 33-36 % share - Key rivals - SP and other smaller parties

Total BJP Dominated Blocks share = 54%

Blocks where BJP competes well 

  • Non-Jatav Dalits: 9-10%, Key rivals- BSP and SP

Total BJP Strong Blocks share = 63%

BJP needs to win just 65% of these blocks to win the UP election

Non-BJP Opposition Dominated Blocks


  • Jatav/Chamar Dalits: 11-12%; Most likely to vote for BSP, though some youth in Western UP could vote for the Bhim Army
  • Yadavs : 8-9%; 80-90% of the Community is expected to vote for the SP
  • Muslims : 19-20%; 90% of the community is expected to vote for non-BJP parties depending upon the constituency and who is more suited to defeat the                                 BJP. Though the SP is expected to be the first choice of the community in any generic situation

As the below Map displays, is one more likely to find Muslims in the upper parts of the state than in the lower parts. They are a pan UP community and are most influential in the Western and Eastern parts of the state.
