The conservative bloc of the German Democratic and Social Christian Trade Unions (CDU / CSU) of the German Chancellor Angela Merkel has achieved 40 percent of the intent to vote and to be in the first place in a survey published by the Forsa Institute today.
The German Conservatives increased one percentage point compared to the previous week’s survey, the barometer for RTL and n-TV stations states.
The Greens collected 16 percent of preferences and took second place. The smaller partner of the government coalition in Germany, the Social Democratic Party (SPD), received 15 percent.
The far-right alternative for Germany (AfD) corresponded to nine percent, while eight percent of those questioned would vote for the left and five percent for the Liberal Party (FDP).
Forsa notes that, in the context of the coronavirus crisis, conservatives are gaining ground thanks to the support of voters who previously favored the Social Democrats, the Liberals and the environmental party Los Verdes.
