Forsa: AfD drops to 8 percent

With political sentiment still stable in Germany, Forsa says there are only two slight changes compared to the previous week: the AfD falls by one percentage point to 8 percent, the other smaller parties also increased by one percentage point to 8 percent.

Bei den übrigen Parteien hat sich gegenüber der Vorwoche nichts geändert, so die Erhebung für das „RTL/ntv-Trendbarometer“, die am Samstag veröffentlicht wurde. Wenn jetzt der Bundestag neu gewählt würde, könnten die Parteien demzufolge mit folgendem Ergebnis rechnen: CDU/CSU 38 Prozent, SPD 14 Prozent, FDP 6 Prozent, Grüne 18 Prozent, Linke 8 Prozent, AfD 8 Prozent.

8 percent would choose one of the other parties. At 22 percent, the number of non-voters and undecided is currently slightly below the proportion of non-voters in the 2017 federal election (23,8 percent). 28 percent of East Germans, seven percentage points more than in West Germany, would not vote at the moment or are undecided. 26 percent of women but only 18 percent of men are currently non-voters or undecided. 37 percent of workers currently want to abstain from voting or are unsure who to vote for. For comparison: 16 percent of civil servants are currently considering abstaining from voting. In particular, many of those eligible to vote who assign themselves to the political center (24 percent) do not want to vote at the moment or are undecided. In addition, 13 percent of those who describe themselves as left and 17 percent of those who describe themselves as right are currently among the non-voters or undecided. The data was collected by Forsa on behalf of Mediengruppe RTL from July 27 to 31, 2020. Database: 2.504 respondents.
