Skip to comments.Poll: Germans want Merkel to remain as chancellor
Posted on 06/09/2017 5:48:43 PM PDT by Olog-hai
There are crises everywhere you look these days: from the Middle East, with its constant political turmoil; to Turkey, sliding toward autocracy under President Recep Tayyip Erdogan; to the US, where President Donald Trump appears to question the shared values of the West on a daily basis. Perhaps this is why Germans are apparently so happy to have Angela Merkel as their chancellor.
In a new study conducted by polling institute infratest-dimap, in conjunction with German public broadcaster ARD, the leader of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) earned her best approval rating since the beginning of the refugee crisis in the fall of 2015.
The chancellors popularity had plummeted after she welcomed nearly 900,000 asylum seekers most of them from Syria and Afghanistan into Germany.
But now, 64 percent of those surveyed say there are satifisfied with the job Merkel has been doing as chancellor, making her the most popular politician in the country. [ ]
The right-wing populist party Alternative for Germany (AfD), which has pushed for a radical change in Germanys immigration policy, earned 9 percent in the new poll. The party is almost certain to gain seats in the Bundestag. However, their popularity is not nearly as strong as those of other populist parties in Europe, like the National Front in France, whose frontrunner, Marine Le Pen, garnered nearly 40 percent of votes in the second round of the presidential election.

Poll: 64% of Germans are as gullible as their mid-20th century ancestors
...Mehr gefälschte nachrichten...

Your New German made Car will come with a Bomb built in
Wir sind idioten im Deutcheland!
There are 7 million migrants waiting on the border of the EU for Merkels reelection
Apparently Germans are not disturbed by Muslim rapes, murders assaults, and other terroristic events done by the people Merkle let in that were welcomed on arrival with German songs and dance.
The world is slipping into the dark abyss of insanity.
What shared values are those? Suicide and Islamism?
Poll: Germans want Der Fuehrer to remain (poll date April, 1945).
They just need a little more demographic shift to get 'er done!

Does FR have a German edition??
English would be nice. Not even going to translate this one.
Why wouldn’t they?
Germany has been taught for almost 80 years that any kind of national pride or patriotism is evil and fascist.
They’ve used the very Denazification laws put in place to attack anyone who dares speak out about the situation.
People acting surprised about it is what’s really insane.
Stuck on stupid/suicidal death Wish population.
They didn’t use the de-Nazification laws to get rid of the socioeconomic system that the NSDAP championed, though.
I didn’t call this fake news (gefälschte nachrichten) for no reason. Infratest dimap is an arm of ARD, the big German broadcast media conglomerate. ARD has been pushing Trump hatred non-stop since November of last year, and this poll cites this two-minute hate factor, further skewing it.
“Poll: Germans want Merkel to remain as chancellor”
IOW, the world will need to kill millions of Germans again, but disguised as muslims this time.
All the other ones are worse.
There is no legal opposition in Germany.
“socioeconomic system that the NSDAP championed, though”
We do not know enough about the German economic system after 1933.
Another fair point.
SPD is just everything bad about Merkel and doubled down on. Die Linke is literally the former state party of the DDR renamed.
AfD tries to be like the UKIP but people have freaked out and want it banned for being Neo-Nazi, which is of course baseless.
