An alliance led by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s party is expected to win the majority of votes in the country’s most populous state, according to an opinion poll about two weeks before the national election.

The National Democratic Alliance led by Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party is expected to win 52 percent of the vote in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, according to ABP News-CVoter opinion poll results late Tuesday. An opposition coalition of more than 20 parties is likely to get its vote share of 36 percent. Uttar Pradesh is politically important because the state alone sends 80 lawmakers to the 543-member lower house of parliament.

The prime minister is betting on strong economic progress and Hindu nationalist policies to return to power for a record third term. Modi predicts that his party and his allies will win more than 400 seats in parliament.

Here are some of the other findings from the survey:

– 42 percent of respondents were very satisfied with the Modi government, while 29 percent said they were less satisfied and 27 percent were dissatisfied.

– 62 percent want to see Modi as prime minister and 24 percent want Rahul Gandhi of the opposition Congress to get the top job.

– On the performance of the BJP-controlled state government in Uttar Pradesh, 51 percent said they were very satisfied while 25 percent were less satisfied. Another 23 percent were dissatisfied

– The survey covered 2,258 people. It has a margin of error of 3 to 5 percent in either direction.
