Decision-makers expect the traffic light government to push digitization


According to an Allensbach survey, many top executives from politics and business expect the new traffic light government to boost digitization. The population is more reserved.

The majority of top executives from politics and business anticipate progress in digitization as a result of the change of government. However, the population as a whole is much more skeptical, as a survey that has now been published shows. According to the survey by the Allensbach opinion research institute, 82 percent of the approximately 500 managers surveyed were convinced that the new federal government made up of the SPD, Greens and FDP will push digitalization more decisively than the last cabinet of Angela Merkel (CDU). 17 percent of decision-makers do not believe that. Only one percent answered undecided.

A representative survey of citizens aged 16 and over yielded completely different results. Here, 37 percent of the participants in the survey were optimistic about a possible boost to digitization by the new government. 32 percent of them expressed negative, 31 percent were undecided. The population sees deficits above all in public administration and in the schools.

The population’s assessment of the digital competence of the individual parties has changed dramatically. While the FDP, which has made the issue the focus of its election campaign, can score points here, the CDU and CSU downright collapsed.

In an earlier survey in 2020, 23 percent of citizens still took the view that the Union parties had the most convincing concept for helping to shape the framework conditions for digital change and driving digitization forward. When the pollsters asked the same question again between the beginning of December 2021 and the beginning of January 2022, only 7 percent of those surveyed saw digital competence most likely in the CDU and CSU.
