Five assembly elections just concluded. Four of them, Delhi, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, were touted as semifinal before the general elections, the Lok Sabha polls, of 2014.
It can be rightly said the nation was thrust into the poll mode right from the time these four state assembly elections were announced.
And the outcome has only galvanized the atmosphere.
No had expected such a big humiliation of Congress. No one had given such a big thumbs-up to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). No one had thought BJP would score so huge victories in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan.
Despite the claims, most of the pre-poll surveys failed to gauge what was going to happen.
Now, with just two months left for the Lok Sabha polls, the run of the pre-Lok Sabha polls opinion poll surveys is already on the show and is expected to gain quick momentum in the coming days.
With each passing week, the frequency is going to increase until the model code of conduct puts them to go silent.
Yes, bitten and stung, expect the outcome of the four assembly results of December 2013 to reflect in their analyses and projections.
