AAP, a new entrant in the political arena, claimed that it enjoys the support of 32 percent voters and party chief Arvind Kejriwal was the most popular chief ministerial choice of the people.
According to the survey, the party has gained five percent and moved to top position since the last survey released in August, leaving Congress and BJP behind.
"AAP now has a vote share of 32 percent, followed by Congress with 28 percent and BJP with 24 percent vote share," said noted psephologist and party leader Yogendra Yadav, while providing details of the survey.
The Kejriwal-led party claimed it was leading with more than 10 percent votes in 33 constituencies, less than 10 percent in 17, in four they had an marginal edge of five percent while in 12 less than five percent.
"If Congress was the biggest loser between the first and the second wave of the survey, the BJP was the real loser between the second and the third wave," he said.
The survey by AAP was conducted between September 5 and October 5. Yadav clarified that the survey was carried out in all 70 seats with 500 people sampled in every constituency to remove distortions.
Yadav said that the survey clearly indicates that there was a wave in favour of the party.

    Kejri will forfeit his deposits and hide in Asa Ram's ashram. AAP has been created to favor Congress. Anna & Kiran hate to share stage with Kejri. His AAP may win a few seats to merge or support Congress at a later stage. No body is corrupt, it is the political power that makes a honest person corrupt and greedy. madan lal gupta, harianawala
