Berlin According to a survey, three months after the federal election, the SPD can expand its lead over the Union. In the “Sunday trend” of the opinion research institute Insa for “Bild am Sonntag”, the Social Democrats have increased by one point to 28 percent.

The Greens also improve by one point to 15 percent. The third government partner, the FDP, however, loses one point and comes to 11 percent. The Union holds its value of 23 percent. The AfD loses one point to 11 percent. The left remains at 5 percent.

In the federal election on September 26th, the SPD was the strongest force with 25.7 percent, ahead of the CDU / CSU (24.1 percent). The third strongest force was the Greens with 14.8 percent, ahead of the FDP with 11.5 percent. The AfD achieved 10.3 percent. The left only got 4.9 percent, but thanks to three direct mandates they lifted the five percent hurdle and moved back into parliament.

In a ranking of politicians who should have “as much influence as possible in politics” in 2022, Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) is at the top with 56 percent, just ahead of Health Minister Karl Lauterbach (SPD) with 54 percent.
