Lets come to Tamilnadu. A number of Exit polls were conducted by major medias. They predict that AIADMK alliance will get majority of the seats. The reasons being Electricity problem, Unemployment problem, widespread corruption, Srilankan war problem and so many regional issues.
In my region (coimbatore) the newly formed Kongunadu munnetra peravai has gained popularity. Basically it represents the Gounder community in the kongu region. It has tremendous support in village and suburban areas. Pollachi, coimbatore, Tirupur, erode are the major kongu strongholds.
