According to a survey, a quarter of a year before the state elections in Bavaria, satisfaction with the state government made up of CSU and free voters, as well as Prime Minister Markus Söder personally, is falling. Satisfaction with his government is only 47 percent - that's a drop of 6 percentage points compared to the survey in May/June, according to a survey by the GMS institute on behalf of Sat.1 Bayern and Antenne Bayern. 48 percent (plus 4 points) are very or rather dissatisfied with the work of the government.
Only 51 percent consider Söder to be a good prime minister - this is the lowest value in years. 45 percent do not consider the CSU leader to be a good head of government.
However, a majority still wants a CSU-led government, either alone (29 percent) or with a coalition partner (36 percent). 27 percent want a coalition government made up of other parties without the participation of the CSU.
If there were a state election on Sunday, the CSU and Free Voters could continue their coalition. In the Sunday question, however, the CSU - unlike in previous polls - no longer exceeds 40 percent (minus 1). The Greens with 15, the Free Voters with 12 and the AfD with 13 percent, on the other hand, can each gain one percentage point compared to the last survey. The SPD is 9 percent (minus 1). The FDP remains at just 4 percent, so it must continue to fear that it will re-enter the Bavarian state parliament.
