The total rating of the political parties that are part of the ruling German coalition for the first time fell below 50%. This is about the so-called big coalition of the Christian Democratic and Christian Social Union (CDU / CSU) and the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD).
Angela Merkel’s bloc – the CDU / CSU – continues to lose its rating on the issue of refugee crisis and relations with the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. For these two political forces would vote 30% of voters, which is 0.5% less than a week earlier.
For 0.5% decreased the popularity of the SPD, for this political force would have voted 19% of voters. Thus the overall rating of the three parties, down to the absolute minimum – 49%.
