After 2 years, 62% give Narendra Modi government a thumbs up

Two years into its term, the Narendra Modi government has been rated by 62 per cent of metropolitan Indians as having done a good or very good job in a survey done exclusively for TOI.

That's a touch lower than the 67 per cent who voiced the same opinion a year ago. Modi himself was perceived by nearly half the respondents in the survey (47 per cent) as being a strong leader who wants to deliver. The survey was conducted by IPSOS, a global market research company in India's eight biggest cities - Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune and Ahmedabad. The 1,348 people polled were aged 18 to 45. Following are the responses to some questions asked during the survey.
