What support do the parties currently have among the population? A survey shows that the SPD has slipped.
In a survey by the opinion research institute Insa for “Bild am Sonntag”, the SPD has slipped to its lowest level since the summer of 2021. In the so-called “Sunday trend”, the Social Democrats come to 17 percent. That is one percentage point less than a week ago and nine points less than in the federal election.
The FDP also lost one point and ended up at 6 percent. The Greens, on the other hand, improved by two points to 15 percent. The other parties represented in the Bundestag remain unchanged: the CDU and CSU remain at 27 percent, the AfD at 21 percent and the Left at 5 percent.
To the question “If there were a federal election next Sunday, how would you vote?” Insa surveyed 1,204 people from September 11th to 15th. The maximum error tolerance is +/- 2.9 percentage points. The survey is representative of the population eligible to vote in Germany.
In principle, election surveys only reflect opinions at the time of the survey and are not predictions of the election outcome. They are also always subject to uncertainty. Among other things, weakening party ties and increasingly short-term voting decisions make it more difficult for opinion research institutes to weight the data collected.
