Few days back, NDTV went into a trance and announced to the world that “Rahul Gandhi is a popular choice for PM” and then they go on to say that “Rahul Gandhi is as popular a choice for PM as Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi”.
I managed to digout the video and following is the result -
The poll was conducted on a hypothetical premises “If congress comes to power”. that means non congress candidates were not considered. If NDTV had even an iota of Journalistic decency they should have said “Rahul Gandhi is a popular choice for PM among congress supporters”
- Also, other way to look at the same data is, Congress PM Candidate Manmohan Singh is not rated very high even among congress supporters!
- Where is Pranab Mukherjee, the number two in present government? was he considered for this poll?
