Last night, ZDF (Channel Two on the state-run TV).....ran Politbarometer....the news segment where they talk numbers in Germany.
So the latest national polling data:
CDU: back up to around 35-percent
SPD: up to around 24-percent
Green Party: 13-percent
Linke Party: slipping a notch to 8-percent
FDP: slipping a notch to 5-percent
AfD: still at 11-percent
Remember, this a national poll....not a state poll. We are into the summer season, when politics in Germany has simmered down five notches and virtually no one is talking politics right now. The SPD from two months ago was at around 19-percent....so they've hyped things up a bit.
