Angela Merkel Set to Win Fourth German Chancellor Election
Angela Merkel is leading in opinion polls in what will be her fourth chancellor election, despite her failed policies on immigration, multiculturalism and foreign aid, among much else.
Last night (Sunday) saw the first & last of the televised debates for the chancellorship, which was seen by most as the last opportunity for Martin Shulz, Merkel’s main opposition, to win over some of the undecided voters and get just over the line.
While Merkel didn’t have a particularly exceptional performance, Shulz failed to make any more than a single well-received point and as such lost the debate rather dramatically. Commentators and columnists are united in the view that the election is already decided in Merkels’ favour, and no matter how great of a campaign and how well his voters turn out, Shulz simply cannot win now.
The inevitable result will likely see another 4 years of Germany pushing for a United States of Europe via increased EU powers and German dominance within, as well as 4 more years of Germany working the single market in its own favour.
