Baerbock is the most surprising: This is how viewers rate the TV triall

Who will emerge victorious from the TV triall? Different audience surveys come to very different results on this question.

ARD poll sees Olaf Scholz ahead

According to an ARD survey by Infratest-dimap by phone and online of around 1,500 viewers, SPD Chancellor candidate Olaf Scholz was able to clearly win the debate. According to the survey, 41 percent of viewers found Scholz to be the most convincing overall. Armin Laschet landed in second place at 27, with 25 percent of the viewers finding the Green Chancellor candidate Annalena Baerbock the least convincing, according to the ARD survey.

According to the ARD survey, Scholz was also ahead when it came to the question of competence. 49 percent of the audience attributed the most competent performance to him, followed by Laschet with 26 percent and Baerbock with 18 percent.

Baerbock surprises positively

A survey by the Wahlen research group of 753 viewers came to a different conclusion. According to this, for 32 percent of the surveyed viewers Olaf Scholz did best, for 26 percent the winner is Annalena Baerbock and 20 percent think that Armin Laschet did the best. Another 21 percent saw no big difference in the performance of the chancellor candidates.

According to this survey, only 14 percent believe that Laschet was the most likable, Scholz for 28 percent and Baerbock for 39 percent (no difference: 17 percent). 21 percent saw the greatest expertise during the debate with the CDU / CSU candidate, 40 percent said that the SPD candidate had the highest level of expertise and only 12 percent of the Green candidate (no difference: 26 percent).

Annalena Baerbock in particular was positively surprised: for 53 percent, the Green candidate exceeded expectations, for 38 percent she was as expected and for eight percent it was worse than expected. In Laschet’s case, 35 percent say “better than expected” (as expected: 53 percent; worse: 12 percent) and for 27 percent Scholz did better than previously expected in the triumph (as expected: 58 percent; worse: 15 percent).
