As per ABP-C Voter Modi 2.0 Report Card, the biggest failure is handling of the Corona crisis with 41.1 percent of respondents saying so. The fieldwork was done between January 1 and May 28, and the sample size was 1.39 lakh with the samples spread across 543 Lok Sabha seats

another shock to Modil-led Centre government, more than half or 52.3 percent said that government help did not reach them during the lockdown. Besides, Voters are also unhappy with the poll campaign during the second wave of the pandemic. 60.8 per cent voters think that the Assembly polls in five states/UT and panchayat polls in Uttar Pradesh should have been postponed.

To a question on “Do you think it was appropriate for Prime Minister to participate in the poll campaign and address election rallies during the second wave of the pandemic in the country?”, a massive 59.7 percent said as Prime Minister of the country, Modi’s participation in the election campaign was wrong.
