“With the undecided voters holding the key which way the state eventually goes in November, both the campaign teams will be tweaking their ground games to win over this key demographic” – Parth Mukherjee, Expert Principal, CEPEX Center for Excellence in Project Execution. “One of the reasons of Trump’s surge is attributable to increasing support from the women” – added Mukherjee.
