The demographic downward trend of the Social Democrats continues: According to a Forsa survey, the SPD continues to lose favor with voters and has fallen below the 20 percent mark for the first time since August. If there were a federal election now, the SPD would only get 19 percent according to the RTL/ntv “trend barometer”. Union (29 percent) and Greens (24 percent), on the other hand, increase slightly by one percentage point. FDP (7 percent), Left (4 percent) and AfD (9 percent) remain unchanged compared to the previous week.

Olaf Scholz (SPD) also approved of the Chancellor question. If the citizens could elect the Federal Chancellor directly, 39 percent of all eligible voters (minus 2 percentage points) would currently choose Scholz and 20 percent (plus 1) for CDU leader Friedrich Merz.

When asked which party is currently dealing best with the problems in Germany, 23 percent named the Greens (plus three points), which achieved the best value. Twelve percent named the Union (unchanged), only eleven percent the SPD (minus two points) and two percent the FDP (minus one). However, 48 percent of respondents did not trust any party to solve the problem.

From May 24th to 30th, 2004, Forsa surveyed eligible voters for the “Trendbarometer”. The error tolerance was given as plus/minus 2.5 percentage points.
