  • Four days to go, 243 seats: Numbers favour the BJP in Bihar's 'wave' election - Firstpost

    With the first phase of the Bihar elections just five days away, the first of the major pre-election voter surveys is out, this one being conducted by the fairly credible Lokniti-CSDS, and published by The Indian Express. While the survey shows the BJP-led four-party coalition four percentage points ahead, the 42-38 split between it and the rival Nitish-Lalu-Congress alliance suggests that this is fight between two strong forces. The BJP coalition certainly has the edge, but the four percent overall lead should be read with caution at this stage in a multi-phase election where voter behaviour in the early phases tends to have some impact on voters in subsequent phases. If late-September voting intentions hold, the BJP coalition will win hands down as a four percent lead will get it a disproportionate share of seats.

    Jeff Rose, a certified financial planner and founder of the Good Financial Cents blog, says that when new clients come to him struggling with their finances, many have no idea how much debt they actually have. Start by making a list of your debts and choosing one debt to pay off first--preferably the one with the highest interest rate.
