About exit polls
An exit poll asks voters which political party they are supporting after they have cast their votes in an election. It differs from an opinion survey that is conducted before elections. An exit poll is intended to reveal the direction of the where the elections are headed, as well as the issues, personalities, and allegiances that have affected voters.
In India nowadays, a variety of firms, usually collaboration with media organisations, conduct exit polls. The surveys can be completed online or in person. It should be noted that exit poll predictions can be wrong.
