According to the poll, “The total support for candidates outside the above seven is extremely small. We have used ‘Others’ to capture this support in relevant instances

The “Undecided” are those who said they had not made up their minds on which candidate to support. The percentage of this group is again very small, confirming beliefs that people from the state tend to hold and express strong opinions”
