Corona policy: With the current trends in Germany, several politicians had to take losses.
Two ministers in particular get off badly.
Cologne - Satisfaction with Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) is falling.
This is shown by the new ARD “Germany trend”, which the opinion research institute infratest dimap recorded on Monday and Tuesday.
And thus before the federal and state corona summit.
The result shows a clear picture: the Chancellor continues to be viewed positively by the majority - 64 percent of those surveyed said they were satisfied with their work - but the result is five percentage points lower than in the previous month.
The WDR announced on Thursday.
It is the lowest figure for Merkel * since April last year.
But the Chancellor is not the only one who has lost approval points.
The values of party colleagues and Federal Health Minister Jens Spahn * have suffered significantly.
It can be assumed that these losses are related to the criticized crisis management * of the Ministry of Health.
Most recently, Spahn had lost trust in the vaccination and the corona tests.
That was now apparently punished.
The Minister of Health has suffered a loss of twelve percentage points compared to February.
Only 39 percent of those questioned said that they were satisfied with his work.
Germany trend: Current survey shows a loss of approval for Merkel, Spahn and Altmaier
And the elevator ride down continues with the Christian Democrats.
Federal Minister of Economics Peter Altmaier (CDU) receives the worst value since he took up the position.
Only 33 percent were satisfied with the CDU politician - ten percentage points loss since the previous month.
Olaf Scholz (SPD) can look forward to it.
It was true that the Bavarian Prime Minister Markus Söder approached it verbally yesterday at the Corona summit - “I don't know what you drank.
You are not Chancellor here ”- but his approval ratings are the highest in the government cabinet.
The Vice Chancellor and Finance Minister comes to 48 percent (plus two percentage points), followed by SPD politician and Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, 44 percent (minus four percentage points) and Federal Family Minister Franziska Giffey (SPD) with 30 percent (minus seven percentage points compared to June) .
Worst values for the federal government since the beginning of the corona pandemic in Germany
50 percent of those surveyed are satisfied with the work of the federal government itself.
Five percentage points less than in February.
And 49 percent are critical.
It's the cabinet's worst reading since the corona pandemic began.
But the current trend in Germany also shows that the majority of those surveyed support the Corona resolutions.
Mind you: The representative survey of 1,296 eligible voters was carried out before the results of the federal-state meeting became known.
According to WDR, 47 percent of those surveyed said they thought the corona measures taken were appropriate.
Even 20 percent were in favor of tightening the rules.
Overall, 67 percent of the participants are satisfied with the Corona policy in Germany or even called for it to be tightened.
And yet: the value of the easing advocates has grown.
30 percent said that the measures were too extensive - eight percentage points more than at the beginning of February and three percentage points more than in the middle of the previous month.
The criticism comes mainly from the AfD electorate and parts of the FDP.
The concrete corona management of politics was rated negatively by the majority.
74 percent said they were less or not at all satisfied with the vaccine they had obtained.
The help for business and the self-employed as well as the provision and use of corona rapid tests also got off badly.
And the way in which politicians presented their decisions in the corona pandemic was largely perceived negatively.
