Federal Government: Forsa survey: Traffic light parties fall to record low

Who would people in Germany vote for in a federal election? A survey shows that things are not looking good for the governing parties SPD, Greens and FDP.

According to a Forsa poll, the traffic light parties currently only have 30 percent of the vote. This is the lowest value measured so far by the RTL/ntv “Trend Barometer”.

The Chancellor’s party SPD would therefore receive 14 percent (-1) of the vote in a federal election, the Greens 11 percent and the FDP 5 percent (-1). The Union would receive 30 percent, as much as all three traffic light partners combined. According to the survey, the AfD is in second place (17 percent, +1). The Sahra Wagenknecht (BSW) coalition has 8 percent (+1). The Left’s share of the vote is not listed separately in the survey.

The Forsa Institute surveyed 2,504 citizens between July 2 and 8. The maximum statistical margin of error is 3 percentage points. Election polls are generally always subject to uncertainty. Among other things, declining party ties and increasingly short-term voting decisions make it difficult for opinion research institutes to weight the data collected. In principle, polls only reflect the opinion at the time of the survey and are not forecasts of the election outcome.

In the latest surveys by the opinion research institutes Infratest Dimap and Insa, the traffic light coalition is doing somewhat better. In both surveys, the SPD, Greens and FDP together received over 30 percent.
