Kashmir confirms the trend: a mature Indian voter cares about governance 

The recent series of state elections was famously described as a mini-general election by the entire club of tele-psephologists. But none dared to hold an opinion or an exit poll. Again, opinion polls are expensive, so perhaps the dwindling revenues of media organisations (TV and print) in this disastrous quarter had something to do with it. But one reason no media organisation was willing to put any money in opinion polls this time was their stunningly consistent record lately of getting it wrong. In the past five years, if anybody has called an election result right, it’s been a mere exception, and that too with many qualifications. Most others have gone wrong.
