According to the poll, Yogi Adityanath is in second place, with 11 percent of the vote (up from 3 percent in August 2020), followed by Rahul Gandhi (10 percent ).

A total of 14,559 interviews were conducted (71 percent in rural regions and 29 percent in urban areas), with 50 percent conducted face-to-face and 50 percent conducted over the phone.
