FRANKFURT (Dow Jones) — The traffic light government lost its parliamentary majority with the Germans in the Sunday question. This is shown by the surveyed picture choice trend of the Insa Institute. Accordingly, the left (5 percent) gains half a point and would just about make the leap over the five percent hurdle and thus into the German Bundestag. SPD (20 percent), CDU/CSU (27 percent), the Greens (17.5 percent), FDP (7.5 percent) and AfD (15 percent) keep their values ​​​​from the previous week. Other parties come together to 8 percent (-0.5).

    With a total of 45 percent, the traffic lights from the SPD, Greens and FDP therefore missed a parliamentary majority. A black-red GroKo with a total of 47 percent has a parliamentary majority, a Jamaica coalition of CDU/CSU, Greens and FDP with a total of 52.5 percent even has a majority of votes.

    In the politician ranking, Federal Defense Minister Christiane Lambrecht (SPD) loses 4 points after her controversial New Year’s Eve video and falls to 20th place, the last place in the ranking. It is losing support among voters of all parties. The first three places (Prime Minister Markus Söder, Left-wing politician Sahra Wagenknecht and Federal Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock) remain unchanged.
