Among the three key regions in the State, Old Mysore has a total of 57 seats and the polling was 72.38 per cent compared to 74.76 per cent in 2013. However, the polling percentage has decreased compared to the 2013 polls where 90.99% voters had turned up.

The Assembly Elections in Karnataka witnessed the highest voter turnout in the state in over 35 years. But analysts say that the party might be in for a rude shock as its aggressive Hindutva stance may backfire. In this region, the Congress has 31 seats and the BJP 13, but with the Reddy Brothers and Sriramulu now part of the BJP, the party expects to perform better. In other words if JD (S) does well it will be mainly at Congress expense. The lower turnout lesser may actually help the BJP, feel analysts said. The support of Janata Dal Secular of former Prime Minister Deve Gowda, the polls have predicted, will be crucial for government formation by either party. The Karnataka polls are also being seen by some as the barometer for the prevailing public mood about the Narendra Modi government at the Centre.

Five exit polls have given the spot to the BJP, four to the Congress. Siddaramaiah went on to realise his ambition of becoming CM by joining the Congress later - and the dynamics of the Deve Gowda-Siddaramaiah relationship will come in to play again should the results on May 15 force the Congress and JD (S) to work together again. "The JD-S will manage 25 seats and Independents will win 3-4 seats".
