German People Want Merkel GONE! Shock Poll Shows 47% Want Chancellor’s RESIGNATION!
A shock YouGov survey this week has shown that almost half (47%) of German people want to see their Chancellor Angela Merkel resign before her term ends. Startlingly, this compares to just 36% of Germans who want to see the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) leader finish her term in office, before possibly stepping down.
She has been trying and failing to form a coalition since September, leaving Germany without any government for over 3 months, during which period the infamous European Leader’s popularity has seen a huge drop both within and outside of Germany.
In November, Merkel supporters were counting on her leading a coalition between the Greens and the Free Democratic Party, before talks broke down.
Her last hope now is to strike a deal with the Social Democrats, her main rivals in the election, however, she has received little interest from the centre-left party in reference to her idea for a ‘Grand Coalition’.
Interestingly, the right-wing party Alternative For Germany (AfD)’s co-Leader, Dr. Alice Weidel predicted this outcome in November, saying: “Merkel is finished. This shows that the AfD works because we prevented a black and green government [with the CDU/CSU and Greens].”
However, responding to these comments back in November, Merkel said: “I was always asked in the election campaign, ‘Will you be ready to serve Germany as chancellor for four years?’ Two months have passed [since the election] so it would be very strange . . . to say that what I told voters during the whole election campaign doesn’t stand anymore.”
