How does an Andhra voter decide?

I don't think anybody can answer that question, as a majority of Andhra voters vote based on impulses rather than a rational thinking and analysis. News papers have greatly influenced elections in Andhra Pradesh so far and I am sure this time it will be 'TV's fair share of credit as Film Star turned Chiranjeevi entered politics.

Found this first of its kind Survey of a select few friends of the author on why they vote. Quite interesting and little disturbing too. Only 12% think Election manifesto is important and 92% says caste is an important factor.
