An Insa survey showed the leftist SPD falling one percentage point to 15.5 percent and the AfD was up one percentage point to 16 percent, the weekly poll for German tabloid Bild revealed on Monday.
Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU) gained somewhat to reach 32 percent, a poor showing compared to earlier results. The poll comes as pressure builds for Merkel to announce her new coalition to keep her in power for four more years.
Another survey by pollster Emnid for Bild am Sonntag showed support for the SPD as well as Merkel’s CDU/CSU bloc down.
Almost five months after the national election, Germany is still without a federal government as struggles to cobble together a “GroKo” or grand coalition between the SPD and Merkel’s conservative bloc.
Merkel’s 2015 decision to open German borders to millions of migrants, saw Alexander Gauland’s AfD party win seats in parliament for the first time.
German State Television’s Channel 1 news reporter Karen Mioska interviewed Yascha Mounck, a German Professor of Politics at Harvard University on the migrant invasion this week.
During the conversation, Mounck stated that Germany was carrying out a unique, never before seen experiment of transforming a mono-cultural, mono-ethnical society into a multi-ethnic one.
In light of this, more and more Germans have begun voting for the AfD he admitted, possibly because voters have lost trust in the established politicians.
But Mounck claims the deluge of migrants into the country will work somehow if German patriots do not have access to the Internet: “I think that it will work out, too, but of course there are too many rejections.”
This deliberate policy was run by Merkel, since Parliament never agreed to it and the German people were never asked to vote on the matter.
Three million predominantly young Arabs and Africans, mostly functionally analphabetic males, have flooded the state welfare system since 2013, and murders, rapes, child rapes and other crimes have exploded.
Merkel intends to import a minimum of 200 000 more migrants every year into the welfare system, the equivalent of a large German city. This is costing the German taxpayer €50 billion each year.
