The CNN-IBN7-CDDS survey reveals that even though his close aides are feeling the heat of the law-enforcing agencies and the judiciary, Modi has consolidated his position as the Numero Uno in the state while the Congress has slipped, failing to counter an increasingly aggressive Gujarat chief minister.

Modi is helped in his mission to score a hat-trick of victories by the strong pro-incumbency sentiment, which is even greater than it was five years ago. The CSDS survey shows that 52 per cent of the voters are in favour of giving the BJP another chance to form the government, up from 48 during the 2007 poll.

Modi's personal popularity is also intact with nearly half the respondents -- 49 per cent -- backing him for the chief minister's post. None of his rivals is even in the double digits when it comes to the chief ministership stakes.
