About 5 media channels including Aseanet had done surveys on election results. Out of the 5 channels 4 has predicted majority for the UDF and one channel predict a slender majority for LDF. On the basis of the query as to who should be the CM majority feels that it should be V S Achuthanadan and next is Oommen Chandy.
Any way all the speculation will be over by 10 am tomorrow and the cat will be out of the bag for us to see. After that there will be speculation as to who will be Chief Minister. By about another 10 days this point also will be settled.
I want to start a thread about the surveys done by the media channels. What is your opinion about the poll surveys?
To me it is not proper to have the surveys bout the outcome. Normally the results will be out in a weeks time. And the actual results will be available. Why we should speculates about an event? In every one of us there is something which makes us to speculate/guess/predict etc as an excitement. Hence it is welcome. However, our suspense/anxiety/anticipation etc will not be over by the survey predictions. The suspense/anxiety/anticipation etc will be over only when the actual results ore out.
