Voting preferences in Germany before the parliamentary elections

The Social Democratic Party (SPD) remains in first place in the electoral preferences before the German parliamentary elections. At the same time, the popularity of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), Chancellor Angela Merkel’s party, which is at the end of its terms, is growing slightly.

According to a poll conducted by the Forsa Institute, the Social Democratic Party (SPD, center-left) is credited with 25% of the voting intentions (compared to the level of 20.5%, reached in the 2017 parliamentary elections). The Christian Democratic Union / Christian Social Union (CDU / CSU, center-right) is at the level of 21%, up 2% in the last week, but well below the level obtained in the 2017 parliamentary elections, of 32.9 %.

The ’90 / Greens (environmentalist) alliance is credited with 17% of the voting intentions ahead of the parliamentary elections scheduled for September 26 in Germany, according to the poll data presented by N-TV. The Liberal Democratic Party (FDP, liberal) is at the level of 11%, equal to the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD). Die Linke (left) is at a level of 6%.

The polls thus foreshadow the possibility of maintaining the current governing coalition CDU / CSU-SPD, only that the main governing party would become the Social Democratic Party (SPD).

In the preferences for the post of chancellor, Olaf Scholz, the candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SPD), is credited with 30%. Armin Laschet, the candidate of the Christian Democratic Union / Christian Social Union (CDU / CSU), has a popularity of only 11%, and Annalena Baerbock, the candidate of the ’90 / Green Alliance, is at the level of 15%.

Germany will hold parliamentary elections on September 26. Angela Merkel has announced that she will no longer run for chancellor.
