Insa survey: AfD in Saxony at 35 percent – well ahead of the CDU

The next state elections in Saxony are in just over a year. The polls of the parties currently show a clear voter favorite.

A year before the state elections in Saxony, according to an Insa survey, the AfD is in first place in the state – clearly ahead of Prime Minister Michael Kretschmer’s CDU. The AfD comes to 35 percent, as reported by the “Leipziger Volkszeitung” (LVZ).

The CDU stands at 29 percent. The LVZ had commissioned the survey together with the “Freie Presse” and the “Sächsische Zeitung”.

Next election in September 2024

Nine percent of those surveyed would vote for the left, seven percent for the SPD, six percent for the Greens and five percent for the FDP. That would probably not be enough for the current governing coalition of the CDU, SPD and Greens to continue. In Saxony, the next state election is planned for September 1, 2024.

Election polls are generally always subject to uncertainties. Among other things, declining party ties and increasingly short-term voting decisions make it difficult for the opinion research institutes to weight the data collected. Insa states a statistical margin of error of plus/minus 2.2 percentage points. In principle, surveys only reflect the opinion at the time of the survey and are not a forecast of the outcome of the election.
