The Thuringia election causes unrest at the CDU. This leaves its mark: in the current RTL / n-tv trend barometer, the Union loses again, this time two percentage points. But since the coalition is also criticized, the SPD can not benefit. Together, the coalition does not make 40 percent more.
The internal party dispute causes the CDU to further decline in the RTL / n-tv trend barometer. If today's Bundestag election, the Union of CDU and CSU would come to 26 percent of the vote. That's two percentage points less than the week before, when the party had stood at 29 percent two weeks ago. The values of the other parties hardly change. The SPD remains at 13 percent of the vote, the left at 10 and the AfD at 13 percent. FDP and Greens can each increase by one point to 9 or 21 percent. The small and micro parties come to the figures of Forsa as in the previous week together at 6 percent. At 24 percent, the proportion of non-voters and undecided persons roughly corresponds to the proportion of non-voters in the 2017 general election (23.8 percent). After the state elections in Thuringia, a direction dispute broke out in the CDU. While top candidate Mike Mohring spoke out for talks with the Left Party of Prime Minister Bodo Ramelow, several members of parliament demanded to negotiate with the AfD for the fascist Björn Höcke. The federal party also intervened in the dispute. Coalitions with Left or AfD, the CDU has denied.Great coalition at 39 percentIn addition, there was also sharp criticism of the course of CDU chief Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer and the Federal Government. The coalition parties come together at just 39 percent. A coalition meeting is expected on Sunday, in which the Union and the SPD want to agree on a regulation on basic pensions. However, the party leaders last insisted on their respective positions. Does the coalition break this question? According to the Trend Barometer, 76 percent of Germans and 72 percent of SPD supporters would not think that this would be comprehensible. Confidence in the CDU leader Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer remains unchanged. In the Chancellor's preference, she is with 13 percent still 21 percentage points behind Olaf Scholz of the SPD (34 percent) and 14 percent 17 percentage points behind Green boss Robert Habeck (31). In the duel of the Green Party leader against the Social Democrats, 24 percent would opt for Habeck and 25 percent for Scholz. Scholz is currently running for office with Klara Geywitz for the SPD presidency. He plays against the duo from Norbert Walter-Borjans and Saskia Esken. If Walter-Borjans would play against Kramp-Karrenbauer, the result would be undecided: 15 percent each would choose one of them. However, 70 percent of Germans would not opt for either. In comparison with Habeck Walter-Borjans would be with 12 percent 25 percentage points behind Habeck (37).
