Elections: Survey: Union by far the strongest force in European elections

Clear lead for the Union in the European elections – but who are the losers in the current poll?

According to a survey, the Union can hope to become by far the strongest force in Germany in next week’s European elections.

According to a pre-election survey by infratest dimap for the ARD Deutschlandtrend, the CDU and CSU would get 29 percent if the election were held this Sunday. The SPD would be at 15 percent, the Greens and AfD at 14 percent. According to the survey, the newly founded Sahra Wagenknecht alliance would get 6 percent, the FDP at 4 percent and the Left at 3 percent. Compared to a survey by the same institute at the beginning of May, the changes are small.

Comparison to the 2019 election: Greens lose 6.5 percent

According to WDR, the survey is representative. 1,515 eligible voters were surveyed from Monday to Wednesday. The broadcaster explicitly points out that this is not a forecast, “but rather the political mood of the current week.” The specific question asked was: “Which party would you vote for if there were European elections next Sunday, or would you not take part in the election?”

Compared to the last European elections in 2019, the Greens in particular have lost ground. Back then, the party received 20.5 percent, which is 6.5 points more than in the current survey. The AfD would improve by 3 points.

Next week, the citizens of the 27 EU states will elect a new European Parliament. The Netherlands will be the first to do so on Thursday. In most countries, like Germany, the election will take place on Sunday.
