Exit polls show BJP-led NDA ahead while the fight between NDA and Mahagathbandhan is neck to neck. The non-conventional parties in Bihar are performing better than the traditional parties. The Left parties which have contested 29 seats are leading in 19. CPI-M candidates Satyendra Yadav from Manjhi and Ajay Kumar from Bibhutipur have won. In 2015, CPI-M had not won even a single seat.
