The electorate in Germany is showing signs of consolidation, as a new poll by the second public broadcaster ZDF records an increase in SPD percentages, a collapse of the Christian alliance and a new retreat of the Greens.
In addition, the Social Democrat candidate for chancellor, Olaf Soltz, is widening the gap that separates him from the Christian Democrat / Christian Socialist candidate, Armin Lassett, despite the fact that Angela Merkel “gives it his all”.
Specifically according to the ZDF poll eIf elections were held next Sunday, the CDU and CSU (Christian Democrats / Christian Socialists) would remain at 22%, the lowest percentage recorded by the ZDF so far for the upcoming elections. The SPD (Social Democratic Party), on the other hand, increased its share compared to a similar poll last week by three percentage points and emerges as the strongest force for the first time since September 2002 with 25%.
The Greens, who started their election campaign very strong and got to the point of leading the polls for a short time, lose three percentage points and would receive 17%.
The Alternative for Germany (AfD) party remains at 11%. The Liberal Party (FDP) and the Left are improving their percentage by one point and would receive 11% and 7% respectively. All other parties together would receive 7% (-2%).
Olaf Solz (SPD) would prefer 53% of respondents (+ 4% compared to the previous poll) for chancellor, Armin Lasset (CDU / CSU) 18% (+ 1%) and the candidate of the Greens Analena Burbok at 14% (-2%).
Olaf Solz is considered 70% (+ 5%) and 25% unsuitable for chancellor. 25% consider Armin Lasset suitable for chancellor (his percentage remains unchanged), while 70% consider him unsuitable. Finally, Berbock considers 23% suitable and 71% unsuitable. The others said they were not sure how to answer.
