Riding on the support of the Janata Dal (Secular), the BJP restricted the Congress to a mere nine Lok Sabha seats in Karnataka. Of the 28 seats in the State, the BJP won 17 while the JD(S) secured two. With this result, the voters of Karnataka remained faithful to the historical pattern established in 2004 of emphatically providing more seats to the BJP in the Lok Sabha elections when compared to the preceding Legislative Assembly election. 

During the election campaign, Eedina.com’s research head H.V. Vasu predicted a possible tally of nine seats for the Congress, with close bipolar contests in another 12 seats.
