An overwhelming 63.6 per cent of unemployed respondents in the latest CVOTER-IANS poll tracker survey preferred Narendra Modi as the next Prime Minister. In the same category, only 26 per cent made Rahul Gandhi as their choice.

Around 35 per cent of general labour saw Rahul Gandhi as PM as against 48.9 percent going for Modi.
