New Delhi, Oct 8 (IANS) Nearly one-third of voters in the poll-bound states of Goa, Manipur, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand are 'not satisfied at all' with the work of Union Home Minister Amit Shah, as per the latest ABP-CVoter-IANS State of States 2021 tracker.

According to the survey, 32.8 per cent of the respondents are 'unsatisfied' while 31.2 per cent are 'very much satisfied' with the Home Minister's performance. The survey also showed that 23.3 are 'satisfied to some extent'.

The sample size of the survey for these five states was 98,121, spread over 690 constituencies.

As the elections are poised to be held in all the five states next year, the survey is expected to give the political parties an impression of the poll results.
