Survey: SPD in Lower Saxony wins slightly, distance to CDU is growing

In Lower Saxony, the SPD is still on course to win the upcoming state elections. If elected on Sunday, the Social Democrats would get 31 percent of the votes, according to a new study by the opinion research institute infratest dimap commissioned by the "NDR". The SPD rose in favor with voters by one percentage point compared to the same survey in July. In Lower Saxony there will be elections on Sunday, October 9th.

The current coalition partner, the CDU, is unchanged with 27 percent of the votes. The Greens would come to 19 percent (minus three percentage points), the FDP to six percent (minus one) and the AfD to seven percent (plus one). The left climbed by one percentage point to four percent, but would still miss entering the state parliament.

Mathematically, in addition to the continuation of the existing grand coalition of SPD and CDU, red-green or black-green would also be possible. More than 1,000 eligible voters were interviewed for the representative survey, as reported by the “NDR” on Wednesday.

According to the survey, most citizens want an SPD-led government (45 percent; minus one). SPD Prime Minister Stephan Weil is also the most popular politician in Lower Saxony.

Infratest dimap also asked citizens about their opinion on nuclear power. Accordingly, only 20 percent were in favor of shutting down the remaining German nuclear power plants by the end of the year. Instead, 42 percent support a temporary extension of the service life by a few months, the so-called stretching operation. 35 percent are open to long-term use of nuclear energy in Germany.
