All polls for the Bundestag in Germany ‒ most recent election in September 2017

The German federal election for the "Bundestag" took place on September 24th, 2017. Long-time federal chancellor Angela Merkel and her CDU/CSU Union has been the clear favorite but with the new competitor Martin Schulz battling for first place became more interesting, even though after several disappointing elections in federal states of Germany, the SPD's polling numbers decreased again. In the end, both CDU and SPD lost dramatically. 

Moreover, once more in an european election, all eyes were on an far-right populist party, in the case of Germany the Alternative for Germany (AfD). The AfD surged in the polls during the refugee crisis but support for the party decreased in the polls in 2017. On election day they gained 8 percentage points and got almost 13% of the votes. The liberal FDP made a comeback after constantly polling above the 5-percentage threshold and won 10%.

About

pollofpolls.eu is a private initiative by three data nerds, who want to offer aggregated polling data for upcoming elections in Europe. Slick design, up to date and comprehensive for anyone looking for the most recent polling numbers and their aggregation. We are not fivethirtyeight yet, but everyone must start at the bottom. We are based in Vienna, Austria, in the middle of the EU with its many difficulties and political disputes going on, and by tracking the political polls we try to give you one option to keep pace with the public mood. We are very aware that polls are far from showing the actual full picture, and we, therefore, see them rather as a very good compass, especially when aggregated. Last but not least, we invest our free time and apologize for possibly occurring bugs or errors.

Contact: Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates and more. We also look forward to your feedback, questions or funny gifs, which you can send us via Email contact@pollofpolls.eu.
