According to the survey, the BJP may bag around 28 seats while Congress and Aam Admi Party (AAP) may clinch 22 and 18 constituencies respectively.

It said that Arvind Kejriwal's AAP is likely to get 15 percent vote share from Congress and BJP in the December 4 polls.

Predicting that BJP will get 34 percent votes, the opinion poll said that AAP was gaining momentum among the voters and other parties and independents are likely to manage only two seats.

Around 4,000 eligible voters were surveyed for the poll between October 9 and 12.

It said that BJP would have gained another 15 percent votes if it didn't have AAP as competitor. According to the survey, there is a reduction in the loyalist base for both Congress and BJP in the last two months, resulting in a gain for AAP.

According to the poll, around 32 percent of respondents preferred Kejriwal as the Chief Minister of Delhi followed by Sheila Dikshit (27 percent) and Vijay Goel (27 percent).

The poll results showed that younger voters (18-23 years) have rated Dikshit's performance as Chief Minister as below average.
