New Delhi, December 24: The 'National Approval Ratings', considered to be a mood-gauger ahead of the high-stake Lok Sabha elections next year, was released on Monday by news channel Republic World in coordination with research agency C-Voter. Catch live updates of the massive pre-poll survey above.

In Uttar Pradesh, the survey predicts a setback for the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The mahagathbandhan sans Congress -- comprising of Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) -- is predicted to win 50 out of the 80 seats in the state. The BJP is likely to retain only 28 constituencies, whereas, the Congress is expected to be restricted to its two bastions - Amethi and Rae Bareli.

In Maharashtra, the pre-election poll predicts the Congress-NCP-Bahujan Vikas Aghadi to hold the edge against the ruling BJP. The Opposition alliance is predicted to win 30 of the 48 parliamentary seats, whereas, the NDA -- Shiv Sena and BJP -- are likely to be reduced to 18 constituencies.

In West Bengal, the Trinamool Congress is likely to maintain its dominance, the survey predicts, but gives the BJP an 8-seat advantage vis-a-vis 2014. The TMC is expected to win 32 of the 42 seats in the state -- four down from the last general elections -- whereas, the BJP's tally will rise from 1 to 9. The Congress is predicted to bag a single seat, whereas, the CPI(M) is headed towards to a complete rout, as per the survey.

In Bihar, the BJP-JD(U)-LJP alliance is predicted to win 35 of the 40 seats, with a combined vote share of 47.4 per cent, whereas, the mahagathbandhan of RJD, Congress, RLSP and HAM-S is expected to be restricted to 5 parliamentary constituencies, with a combined vote share of 38.6 per cent.
