For the CDU / CSU, these are once again frustrating values: every second Union supporter sees Scholz in the Chancellery, not Laschet.
Berlin - On Tuesday a small glimmer of hope for the Union, on Wednesday rather disillusionment again: The survey rollercoaster for the CDU and CSU continues. The parties around Chancellor candidate Armin Laschet were the only party to gain slightly in the current "Trendbarometer" from RTL and ntv (September 21) - thus shortening their gap to the leading SPD. But one day later, with the chancellor values, things are not looking so rosy again.
(Scholz or Laschet? You can get the latest forecasts and first results in our politics newsletter.)
Because the majority of citizens no longer believe in a change of mood, reports ntv now, presenting new values (September 22nd).
According to these figures, 66 percent of German citizens believe that the SPD will receive the most votes in the federal election - regardless of which party they lean towards.
The value for the Union is 18 percent, which is far behind.
Although the Greens themselves have not yet given up hope: only 4 percent believe that the Greens can get the most votes.
2 percent see other parties ahead.
Survey before the 2021 federal election: who will be Chancellor?
Many see Olaf Scholz ahead
Looking at most of the votes is an interesting number on election night.
Then it will be exciting to see what happens around the coalition options.
And also: who will be Chancellor in the end?
According to the cited Forsa survey commissioned by the RTL media group, 67 percent of citizens think that SPD candidate Olaf Scholz will succeed Merkel.
For Armin Laschet (CDU) only 16 percent think so.
Annalena Baerbock (Greens), a woman again in office, only see 2 percent of those surveyed.
That many SPD and Green supporters see Scholz for this government office is less surprising.
But then the gossip for Armin Laschet: Even among Union supporters, 50 percent believe that it will be Scholz in the end.
Only a minority (40 percent) sees Laschet as Chancellor.
Bundestag election: polls are not predictions - the voters will decide until Sunday evening
Who will actually emerge as the winner of the election on Sunday can only be said after 6 p.m. when all polling stations close.
Because surveys are not forecasts, they only provide a snapshot.
Experts often emphasized this.
A lot of votes will also be given by letter this year.
