The percentage of polling also will be more in villages. Another fact is that the village voters may go by the caste of the candidate or religion of the candidate. But in urban areas, this feeling will be less.
Village votes are from farmers and workers in the agriculture. Their expectations and aspirations are different from those of the voters of the urban area. Urban voters will think about employment and other living standards.
With all this the money, liquor will play an important role either in the urban area or in the rural area. The night before the day of elections is crucial for the outcome. Many things will happen at that time and tables will be turned.
Recently, I asked a woman from a village as to whom she would vote. Since she is faithful to former CM Jayalalitha, she said she would vote for her party. When I said that her party is divided and is allied with the ruling party, she expressed her fear that the present government may not favour the self help women group if it comes to power in the centre again, and she would vote for the opposition party.

The urban middle-class people still influence Indian elections more than rural people.

Another complexity is in the percentage wise population of the different groups affiliated to either local or national parties. In urban areas this affiliation will have a different distribution while the rural areas will have their own contributions.
Caste, creed, party affiliation, religion and nationalistic approach are the key elements which will dictate the mandate. Rural and urban both are having these voters albeit in different percentage.
So, it is not easy to find a straight solution to this query.
