Traditionally, the region is seen as a BJP bastion. It also has a sizeable population of Muslims. A higher Muslim voter turnout could favour the Congress or the Janata Dal-Secular.

On Saturday, 72.13 percent of the 4.94-crore strong electorate exercised their franchise to decide the fates of 2,654 candidates, contesting for 222 seats out of 224 assembly constituencies. This was the highest recorded voter turnout in the last 35 years. Incumbent Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, who has been leading the Congress campaign by travelling extensively across the state, is highly confident about his party’s potential to retain the state by a huge majority.

For the BJP, led by star campaigner Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has left no stone unturned by campaigning aggressively in Karnataka, by addressing over ten rallies and is hopeful that it would wrest back power from the Congress after a decade. The JD-S is looking to establish itself once again in Karnataka politics and is expected to give a tough fight to both the BJP and the Congress.
