Even after the federal election, the Union is still fighting for the favor of the voters.

In a new poll there are four percent less than on September 26th.

Berlin - After its historically poor result in the federal election two weeks ago, the Union has continued to slide in favor of the voters, according to an Insa poll.

In the “Sunday trend” of the opinion research institute for

Bild am Sonntag

, the CDU and CSU are now together at 20 percent, one percentage point less than in the previous week and four less than in the federal election on September 26th.

Survey: SPD strongest force, Greens lose, FDP gains

The SPD is still at 28 percent.

The FDP increased by two percentage points and came to 14 percent - just behind the Greens, who lost one point to 15 percent.

The AfD is unchanged in the survey at 10 percent, the left comes to five percent, the other parties to eight percent.

After the worst election result: CDU wants to analyze election results

In the federal election, the Union had achieved its historically worst result with 24.1 percent.

There is therefore a lot of work to be done within the longstanding Chancellor's party.

This affects the CSU, but especially the CDU - whose party leader Armin Laschet has now announced his withdrawal.

The CDU is currently planning to analyze the election defeat intensively.

In doing so, the Christian Democrats are apparently relying on a process that is unprecedented in the history of the party.

"We want nothing less than a deep analysis of the content of our policy," said CDU General Secretary Paul Ziemiak of the



Bundestag election: “Basis Tour” and “Eastern Conference” - this is how the CDU plans the liberation

In order for this analysis to ultimately help the entire party, external experts should be called in. “We need a clear profile and for that we have to question ourselves. However, this can only be done openly and honestly if we also involve bright minds from across society, ”said Ziemiak. According to


, people should also have their say who are not close to the party and even critical of it. Such processes were hardly known in the Union until now.

Within the party, the CDU is also planning a commission in which the direct candidates should have their say.

MEPs who have lost their constituencies are supposed to help with error analysis, and victorious politicians are supposed to give tips on how to do better.

Ziemiak is also planning a “basic tour” through all regional associations: “In order to work through this election, I will present myself to all the CDU branches for discussion in the coming weeks.” One focus of the work-up is to be placed on East Germany.

They want to involve the East more again.

An "East Summit" should help.

To this end, an “Eastern Conference” is planned for December, where all of the top East German politicians of the CDU will come together.
