Yashwant Deshmukh, Founder, CVoter said, “The working style of Chief Executive Officers of CM is popular. People are preferring CM who takes centralized decisions.
Deshmukh said, these are leaders who are not afraid of being blamed. It is risky when things go wrong, as in the case of former Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh. But there is a better rating for CEO style. We are living in a parliamentary democracy, but a presidential system is becoming popular among the masses.
CVoter Tracker is India’s only daily opinion tracking exercise, mapping over 100,000 randomly selected respondents in a calendar year. The tracker, run in 11 Indian languages, has interviewed over 10 lakh respondents in person and at CATI over the past ten years.

On the other hand, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami ranks second in terms of minimum voter anger with 10.1 per cent, but since he is a new CM, he is getting the benefit of the doubt, compared to 61 per cent in the state at large. Angry with the government. Earlier chief ministers in the state were getting negative ratings, but now it has reduced, though the anger against the state government is high.
Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik is third with 10.4 per cent anger against himself and 37.6 per cent against the state government.
Also, in some states, there has been some difference in the figures even after changing the CM. With Punjab and Karnataka getting new chief ministers, the states are on a respectable score as they were earlier.
The most angry people of Telangana CM K. Chandrashekhar Rao (KCR). At least 30.3% of the respondents are angry with him and want change. Deshmukh said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is ready to make inroads in the state given the high level of anger against the ruling party as well as the good ratings of the central government.
He said that the time has come for KCR’s son K.T. Rama Rao, take his place, or else things may get out of hand.
Also the northeastern states collectively remained at the bottom of the list with 29.2 per cent of the people angry.
There is 28.1 per cent anger against UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, but this is because Uttar Pradesh is a polarized state.
