Sorry for the dumb question, jaichind, but is there any broad long-term movement/effort towards party consolidation in India? I've always found it interesting that major late-stage developing economics – namely India and Brazil – have such fractured partisan systems. It makes these elections very difficult to follow casually.

Is it even worth staying up for this on the East Coast?

NDTV hosts just roasted Hillary Clinton for claiming that Russians stole the election.

Watching the NDTV pundits trying to navigate all of the various crosstabs and state results and alliances versus parties is kind of hilarious.

Might do a hold/pick-up map tomorrow if I have the time and results are out.

Oops. He's got a seat in Kerala though.

Yes, but losing Amethi is a disastrous symbol for his party. The seat has been held by three Gandhis, none receiving less than a majority and frequently not contested. Imagine Joe Kennedy III losing re-election. (I think you already know this, but I am emphasizing for anyone coming across this thread confused.)

You're forgetting about the time difference.
