By contrast, 38 percent do not believe it is threatened in Germany.
Accordingly, the voters of the Greens (79 percent) are the most satisfied with democracy in Germany, ahead of the Union voters (72 percent) as well as those of the SPD and the FDP (both 64 percent). Of the left-wing voters, 49 percent express their satisfaction, while among AfD supporters, it is only 19 percent.
Germans are the most threatened by right-wing extremists (47 percent), right-wing populists (27 percent), migrants (also 27 percent) and left-wing extremists and the US (22 percent each). Respondents were able to select from a list of up to three dangers.
Depending on their political sympathies, respondents perceived the main threats differently. For AfD voters, migrants (54 percent), the federal government (37 percent) and left-wing extremists (33 percent) are the greatest threat to their community.
The Greens, on the other hand, consider right-wing extremists (66 percent), right-wing populists (49 percent) and the US (21 percent) the biggest problems. The reason for the poll is the International Day of Democracy to be held on 15 September.
