NEW DELHI: Satisfaction level with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi's leadership remained high on May 19, the last day of polling, just as it was on April 11, the first day of the general election, according to IANS-CVOTER poll tracker.

Throughout the seven phases of the election process, voters gave positive approval to the government -- a trend that has been reflected in the findings of various exit polls indicating that the ruling National Democratic Alliance (NDA) is poised to get a comfortable second term.
