An angry Facebook user reports that Rahul Gandhi was having only 50,000 votes when Narendra Modi was having 570567 votes, then HOW all of a sudden could Rahul manage to get so much votes??

If the popularity on Internet is to be considered, it can be established beyond doubt that Narendra Modi and Anna Hazare are most popular among net users. NAMO (short form of Narendra Modi), many times continously trends on Twitter for several days. “Anna Hazare” has been declared as the fastest Rising searched Item in India by Google.

People are suspecting the survey and concluding that there is something fishy behind it. “This is impossible. This survey is a fraud”, writes another Facebook User.

Infact people have started a counter campaign to promote Narendra Modi in the survey. This has been effective and the margin between Rahul and Narendra Modi is getting closer.
However several Questions remain unanswered. Is this survey biased? How so many votes have been cast in Leaders Category, while the category of Film Stars and Sports Person are begging for votes?
