Sunday question for Lower Saxony – survey sees CDU clearly ahead

Hanover – If the state elections were to take place next Sunday, the CDU would be clearly ahead with 35%. The SPD would only get 27%, the Greens 20%. That is the result of a survey by Infratest dimap on behalf of the NDR magazine “Hallo Niedersachsen”.

The AfD would reach 6%, the left 5%. The FDP would miss the entry into the state parliament with 4%. According to the survey, it would be enough in Lower Saxony for a continuation of the GroKo, but also for a black-green or just for a renewed red-green government.

A whopping 70% of those questioned are satisfied with the work of the state government. In areas such as economy, internal security, refugee and budget policy, people trust the CDU more than the SPD, which can score points in terms of social justice. The Greens are ahead in environmental policy and agriculture.

However, 57% would vote for Prime Minister Stephan Weil (SPD) in a direct election, while Economics Minister Bernd Althusmann (CDU) only 23%.

In a survey in November 2018, the CDU came to 28%, the SPD to 26% and the Greens to 24%.
