In a recent study by ZDF, the Greens are on the rise again. The SPD is losing popularity. Nothing changes in the Union.
In the current ZDF “Politbarometer” the Greens have again reached 20 percent. They won a percentage point in the poll published by the Mannheim research group Wahlen on Friday. At the same time, their lead over the SPD increased, which fell by one point to 16 percent.
CDU / CSU remains ahead
The CDU / CSU remains clearly at the forefront of the so-called Sunday issue with an unchanged 37 percent. The AfD remains at ten percent, the left party continues to reach seven percent. The FDP must fear a return to the Bundestag with an unchanged five percent. The majority is therefore for a black-green or a black-red coalition.
In the political vote, which, contrary to the Sunday question projection, does not take into account tactical voter behavior or long-term voter loyalty, the Greens get as much as 24 percent, the CDU / CSU 39 percent. It is followed by the SPD (19 percent), the AfD (six percent), the left (five percent), and the FDP (four percent).
The main politicians
On the scale of the ten most important politicians, Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) remains clearly ahead with an unchanged value of 2.5. CSU boss Markus Söder (minus 0.2) and Minister of Health Jens Spahn (CDU – plus 0.1) each with a value of 1.5 and Finance Minister Olaf Scholz (SPD) with 1.4 (minus 0, 1).
The other places are taken by Greens boss Robert Habeck and Minister of Foreign Affairs Heiko Maas with 1.2 each, ahead of Greens co-leader Annalena Baerbock with 0.8. At the bottom of the list are NRW Prime Minister Armin Laschet with 0.7, Interior Minister Horst Seehofer with 0.3 and CDU politician Friedrich Merz with minus 0.1.
The Mannheim Elections Research Group surveyed 1,229 randomly selected voters for the “Politbarometer” from Tuesday to Thursday. The error rate was given as plus / minus two to three percentage points, depending on the percentage.
