Poll: Traffic light coalition defeated by Jamaica coalition
The traffic light coalition would only come to 49 percent, a Jamaica alliance of Union, FDP and Greens to 54 percent. According to the report, the reason for the poor poll numbers is clear dissatisfaction with the work of the traffic light government and Chancellor Scholz. 46 percent of those questioned stated that they were dissatisfied with their work, only 32 percent said they were satisfied.
65 percent of those surveyed are of the opinion that Scholz is not acting decisively enough in the corona pandemic and the Ukraine crisis. 56 percent are dissatisfied with the work of the traffic light and only 30 percent are satisfied. For the Insa survey, 1202 people were interviewed between February 1st and 4th.
