2021 elections in Germany: Greens lead in polls as CDU loses support

Berlin - The Greens are in favor of the voters in front of the CDU. At the moment, 25 percent of Germans would vote for the Greens and only 24 percent for the Christian Democrats in the federal election, reported Bild citing a survey by the YouGov opinion research institute.

Compared to the beginning of the year, the CDU lost twelve percentage points. At the same time, the Greens added seven points to their chancellor candidate Annalena Baerbock.

Laschet comes under pressure
According to the survey, one reason for the CDU's poor result is its candidate Armin Laschet. For example, 37 percent of those surveyed who voted for the party in the previous general election said that because of Laschet's person, they would be less likely to vote again for the CDU. In contrast, 15 percent said they wanted to vote for the Union parties because of the 60-year-old.

Prime Minister Laschet is also coming under pressure in his state of North Rhine-Westphalia. There, 71 percent of the residents are dissatisfied with him, reported Focus Online according to a Forsa survey commissioned by the Bonn Academy for Research and Teaching of Practical Politics.

Shortly after Baerbock was nominated as the top Green candidate for the federal election in September, according to a Forsa survey, there was already a strong shift in sentiment in favor of the party. However, Matthias Jung from the Wahlen research group expressed doubts about the results. "I do not consider such a turnaround of this magnitude to be realistic."
