    it will be cakewalk for UDF..LDF will be distant second and BJP will be just for name sake.

    A good thing about Kerala is that till date probably it is the only state which does not vote on communal lines.

    Even Tamil Nadu for that matter. Only the useless Kannadigas of Karnataka vote for BJP.
