Few Germans believe that the Chancellor candidates will wisely adjust their behavior after the flood disaster. Laschet does the worst.
Berlin – The trust of the citizens in the chancellor candidates does not seem to be the greatest shortly before the general election. This is shown by a survey by the polling institute Civey on behalf of Augsburger Allgemeine (Saturday).
Accordingly, only 17 percent of German citizens believe that CDU / CSU chancellor candidate Armin Laschet is drawing the right lessons from the flood disaster in western and southern Germany. SPD candidate Olaf Scholz comes to 20 percent, Green candidate Annalena Baerbock at least 25 percent. 38 percent, on the other hand, do not trust any of the three.
A similar picture emerges if one looks at the electorate of the candidate for chancellor. Most supporters of the Greens seem to trust Baerbock to learn the right lessons from the devastating flood. 87 percent of the eco-party supporters are behind the party leader on this issue. Vice Chancellor Scholz achieved an approval rate of 74 percent among the SPD voters. Only 48 percent of Union supporters trust CDU boss Laschet to do so.
Background to survey
The polling institute Civey considered the responses of 5040 for the survey Participants from Germany in the period from July 21 to July 23, 2021. The question was: “Which candidate for the chancellorship do you trust most likely to learn the right lessons from the flood disaster?” The statistical error is 2 .5 percent.
