German trend: Germans want continuation of the grand coalition

2019-12-05T18:04:54.213Z

Despite all the dissatisfaction, the majority of polls say that the CDU and SPD continue to govern together. Also for Federal Finance Minister Olaf Scholz there is encouragement.



According to a poll, the majority of Germans are in favor of continuing the grand coalition. According to the ARD Germany Trend, 64 percent of Germans want the government alliance to continue working until the end of the 2021 legislative period. At the same time, two-thirds of Germans are little or not at all satisfied with the work of the SPD and the Union, according to the survey conducted by Infratest Dimap.

56 percent of Germans worry about political stability in Germany if the coalition ends prematurely. New elections currently hold only 28 percent for right. In the so-called Sunday question, both the Union and the SPD drop by one point to 25 and 13 percent, respectively.

In terms of esteem, no one of a number of given federal politicians currently has a majority of respondents behind them. Finance Minister Olaf Scholz, who has just been defeated in the SPD-member vote in the race for the party leadership, rises in the sympathy of the Germans: 47 percent of respondents are very satisfied or satisfied with his work - that is seven percentage points more than in the previous survey. He concludes with Chancellor Angela Merkel. But only 49 percent of SPD supporters are satisfied with Scholz, while 69 percent of the Union's electorate.

Great dissatisfaction with climate policy

Only a minority of the budding SPD chairman dares to help the party prosper. 22 percent believe that under Norbert Walter-Borjans and Saskia Esken the party will succeed in convincing more voters; 70 percent do not believe that.

Overall, 85 percent of respondents think government parties are too busy with themselves and their staff, rather than doing their jobs. Particularly in the creation of affordable housing and climate policy, the dissatisfaction of the eligible voters shows: About three quarters are less or not at all satisfied with the work in these two areas (77 and 76 percent, respectively). Economic and foreign policy, with which 55 per cent are very satisfied or satisfied, and the family policy with which 54 per cent are very satisfied or satisfied are rated as most positive.

For the survey, the Institute polled 1,007 voters on 2 and 3 December. Fault tolerance was reported as 1.4 to 3.1 percentage points.
