Kasaragod Assembly Elections

Swing Meter:
LDF UDF SWING

 

Summary:

Kasaragod leans LDF. BJP has a significant vote share in the district, it’s highest in the state, but this vote share has declined since 1982. Manjeshwaram still remains party’s best bet to open an account in 2016. Then that was the case in 1982, and every election since.¬†Then BJP has struggled to go beyond the 20% mark.

 

3 constituencies lean LDF, while 2 lean UDF. Like many other districts in Malabar, Congress has no presence in the district and is a direct contest between CPM and Muslim league. LDF has won almost two thirds of all elections since 1982.
