God Save the State, Country and World

Amidst the tight work schedule, took a day off to perform the democatic duty. And now the results are out.!!

Whether it is good or bad, let God save the country :)

It is very interesting to see that, the difference in seats won by the two alliances grossly skew the thin margin in the total number of votes. [with the few results which I studied.]

What I mean is, there is a large number of constituencies which have a very narrow margin.

Madurai East won by DPA has a diff of 52 votes,

DMK Gen Sec. Anbazhagan won by hundred odd votes.

Minister Radhakrishnan loses in Tirumayam by 315 votes

Minister Nayinar nagendran loses in Tirunelveli by 402 votes

P. Chidambaram once said, elections are always about negative votes. People come to vote to defeat somebody and not to elect somebody. [though it was meant to be the other way].

This time around, I think there was a wave in TN to defeat the UPA/DPA.[This is what the pre-poll surveys also predicted.] But, this wave did not solidify into the AIADMK+ votes as it did in 2001.

It got distributed among AIADMK+, DMDK, BJP

In the seats where the AIADMK+ has won the victory margins are big.
In the seats where the DPA has won, the margins are low and are infact less than half the number of votes DMDK/BJP received.

It would be interesting to see the grand total number of votes polled by both the alliances. I will not be surprised if the AIADMK+ had received more votes than DMK+ which has got about twice the number of seats won by the former.

YEah, the margins are too narrow. I am sure..a few contestants would have had 'ACid reflux'

I am happy about one thing ' The Coalition'..which is something new to TN. Let's see how that works.!!

Lastly - Great job of doing your Duty.!!! I mean voting..!
