The Grand coalition is the most German is not high in the course: 63 percent of you would find it not bad, if the Alliance of the CDU and the SPD would break even this year, apart.

Only 29 per cent would miss the Grand coalition. The results of a representative survey by the opinion research Institute Emnid for the “Bild am Sonntag”.

In the case of SPD supporters would even welcome 73 percent to a premature end, 21 per cent would find a break-up of the coalition bad – only the followers of the AfD would welcome a breakup of the coalition, more (97 percent, “not bad”, two percent “bad”). Among the Union supporters, 49 percent, approve of, after all, more of a coalition (45 per cent, there would be a break-up bad).

as a result, my assessment of the work of the Grand coalition. 36 percent would give the government only a “Satisfactory” as a grade, 43 percent in a 4 or 5, nine percent, which is a smooth 6. Only one of the 1009 respondents wanted to be awarded the best possible grade of 1, seven per cent find the work of the coalition is “good”. This results in an average grade of 3.8. “The approval of the Grand coalition has deteriorated markedly”, quoted the newspaper Emnid pollsters Torsten Schneider-Haase.

the testimony of the individual members of the government is to grow. At best, the work of German Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) rating, more than half of the German finds the work “rather good” (41 percent “rather bad”). Relatively good grades, also Economics Minister, Peter Altmaier (CDU, 47 percent to get “rather good”, 30 percent “rather bad”), and foreign Minister Heiko Maas (SPD, 47 percent “rather good,” 32 percent “rather bad”). Particularly bad Minister Horst Seehofer (CSU, 28 per cent cut inside “rather good”, 58 percent “rather bad”), defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen (CDU, 29 percent “rather good”, 60% “rather bad”) and Minister of transport, Andreas Scheuer (CSU, 24 percent “rather good”, 51 percent “rather bad”).
