The BJP has also Dalit voters, specifically Jatav voters loyal to BSP. Nationally, the BJP has been winning the majority of SC-reserved seats in the last two elections. In 2019, it has gained 41% Dalit support at all over India level.
2017- 25%, 2019 – 16%, Last 30 days: 22% (Trending Lower)
The Gap between BJP and SP was 35% in 2017, went up to 42% in 2019, and 38% now. The Gap has reduced to 30% until the PM’s Farm Bill withdrawal decision. This has given BJP a bounce.
2017- 4%, 2019 – 2%, Last 30 days: 5% (Trending Lower)
There is a sudden decline in support of BSP which has benefited other parties and the population of SCs (-24%) as the BJP has successfully created a push between Jatavs and non-Jatavs. The BSP risks being reduced to just a Jatav party in 2022. In the 2019 general elections, the BJP achieved 60% of non-Jatav votes.
The current loss of support is mostly shifting towards the SP, which is seen gaining from 22% in 2017 to 31% in 2022 as projected by C-Voter.

Daily UP Opinion Poll 2022: Will CM Yogi Adityanath return as Chief Minister?
CM Yogi Adityanath is highly likely to complete 5 years in the next 5-6 months. The question is, will he break the jinx and return as Chief Minister after the next election?
As per the latest ABP C Voter Poll(released on January 3rd), the preferred CM Choices of the people of UP are:
- 44% want Yogi Adityanath to remain in power
- 32% want Akhilesh Yadav to return
- 15% want Mayawati to return
- 3% want to see Priyanka Gandhi as their CM
UP Election Opinion Poll 2022: 3 Reasons why the Opposition parties will struggle to beat the BJP
1. While some regard CM Adityanath as a polarizing figure, he has enjoyed strong support amongst voters in the state. Apart from periodic surveys which show high satisfaction with the CM, the BJP has performed well even in the 2019 election and 2021-22 local elections.
2. None of the current Opposition parties have won anywhere near 35% of the vote in the last 30 years. This is because of the narrow caste and demographic base that each of SP, BSP, and Congress target. Over the last 5 years, all 3 parties have failed to develop leadership that represents the various shades of the UP population.
3. Another way to look at it is through a mix of Leadership development, OBC, and even tokenism, BJP has taken large proportions of the OBC and Upper caste voters along with them. The SP or BSP have failed to find an issue (so far at least) that will make these voters abandon the BJP.
For example, the UP per capita GDP (Constant currency) has grown by less than 1% in the last 4 years (2017 to 2021), the much-hated (by BJP supporters) Mamata grew Bengal per capita by a whopping 22%. Such stark performance gaps have made a ZERO dent in the popularity of CM Yogi Adityanath, a reflection of how poorly the Opposition has organized themselves over the last 5 years.
UP Election Opinion Poll 2022: Caste and Religious Mix of UP
UP is not just Indian’s largest state but the world’s largest subdivision with a population of 200 million people (as per the 2011 census). In fact, if UP was a separate nation it would be the 8th largest in the world.
Due to the importance of caste and religion in the politics in the state, there are many small parties that cater to the interests of castes in a particular region.
- Hindus – 79.7%
- Muslims – 19.3%
- Others – 1%
As the census only records the numbers of Religious Minorities and Scheduled Castes/Dalits, all figures of U.C. and O.B.C.s are just estimations based on sample surveys or made by political analysts
- UC/General Category Hindus are 20-23%
The 2 largest communities are Brahmins and Thakurs/Rajputs.
There are other UC Communities like Vaishyas and Baniyas(who mostly live in urban areas), Tyagis, Kayasthas, Khatris and Bhumihars
- Hindu OBCs are 43-45%
The prominent Hindu OBC communities are
- Yadavs – 8-9%, the largest OBC community in UP
- Kurmis -4-5 %
- Lodh/Lodhi Rajputs – 4%
- Jats – 2-3% (live in Western UP)
- Rajbhar – 2-4 % (live in Eastern UP)
- Kushwaha/Maurya/ Shakya – (5-6%)
- Nishad/Mallah – 4-5%
Other OBC communities in the state are Pals, Kashyaps, Prajapatis, Nais, Gujjars, etc
- SCs are 21.1%
U.P. has the largest SC population in India, most SCs in the state live in rural areas. The prominent SC castes are:
- Jatavs/Chamars(56% of the total SC population)
- Pasis (15.9% of the total SC population)
- Dhobis (6%)
- Koris (6%)
- Balmiki/Valmiki (3.3%)
- Muslims are 19.3%
Most Muslims are Sunnis with Shias having a formidable presence in some regions of the state like Lucknow.
Muslims are generally perceived as a homogeneous vote bank who cast votes en-masse this perception is not true.
Muslims as a community are divided into various sub-groups and based on identity, they can be placed under three categories, Ashraf, Azlaf, and Arzal. If we have to compare to Hindu communities for the sake of general understanding, Ashrafs are similar to UCs, Azlafs to Hindu OBCs, and Arzals to SCs.
Many castes of the latter 2 communities come under the OBC category

- Muslims: 19-20%; 90% of the community is expected to vote for non-BJP parties depending upon the constituency and who is more suited to defeat the BJP. Though the SP is expected to be the first choice of the community in any generic situation
