Opinion Poll Graphic Predicting Samajwadi Party Win In UP Is Fake

BOOM found that the images are made using IndiaTV's survey template. The original prediction was different.

Two viral graphics claiming to show an opinion poll predicting a huge win for Akhilesh Yadav-led Samajwadi Party (SP) in the upcoming Uttar Pradesh assembly election, are fake and morphed.

BOOM found that the images are digitally manipulated using IndiaTV's opinion poll template. The number of seats predicted for the SP in the assembly elections are highly exaggerated from the original survey.

As Uttar Pradesh gears up to vote on February 10, 2022 Facebook has been flooded with fake and doctored opinion polls predicting winners and losers.

While one of the images predicts an impossible 403 seats for SP alone and zero seats for other parties, another version of the graphic shows the party winning 350-390 seats and low single digits for parties such as the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Congress and others.
