Only one out of four potential Left-voters would vote for this party today is actually his voice. The analysis of the research Institute Emnid. Among potential Left voters - currently there are 22 per cent - would, however, choose to 31 percent of the Green, if next Sunday parliamentary election would be, more so than the left party.
Undecided by the maximum voter potential of the left party, currently 18 percent, nine percent would vote for the SPD or the Union, only one percent for the AfD and FDP.
The group commissioned the study is ammunition for the party Chairman Katja Kipping and Bernd Riexinger, the - put differently, as a group, boss, Sahra Wagenknecht, especially on urban, younger and student Milieus. Wagenknecht, however, has repeatedly complained that their party had neglected the workers and the unemployed.
the group boss is aiming for, previous voters of the AfD to the Left-back - a strategy for which there is, according to the analysis of the opinion of researchers, however virtually no Chance. The exchange with the AfD had come "to a Standstill", - stated in the study. In the last parliamentary elections in 2017, the Left had gained in a similar order of magnitude of the SPD and the AfD is lost. At that time it was about 400,000 voters in both directions compared to 2013.
in 2017, selected workers, trade unionists and the unemployed more frequently, the AfD than The Left. Specifically: In the case of the workers, 18 percent voted for the AfD and ten percent for the left party, the trade unionists, and 15 percent for the AfD and twelve percent for the left party. 17 per cent of unemployed persons voted in the AfD, two percentage points less to The Left.
the discussion on The potential milieu of the party is one of the main points of conflict at the intra-party clashes of the Left. Wagenknecht, together with her husband, Ex-party leader Oskar Lafontaine, the collection movement "get Up" in September 2018, among other things, to more so-called "Wutbürger". "Get up," reached own analysis of this grouping, a disproportionately high number of members of the SPD and the left party, but only a few Green members. Up to 100 AfD members have registered as supporters.
the solution competence of the Left self of followers bad
a rating of The analysis of Emnid, according to the party preference for the Left since 2013 is consistently around ten percent. The researchers therefore raise the question of whether the Left was, therefore, a party "without dynamics". You will also find that the solution is a rating of competence of the left party is relatively poor, even among its own voters. As a similar miserable, only the General solution competence of the AfD. As well as the AfD, the Left mobilized in percentage terms, roughly twice as many voters in the East compared to the West, in the Green, it is Vice versa. The CDU and the SPD, in contrast, has a total German electorate.
The study was presented last week to the Conclave of the Left group in the Bundestag in Berlin last week. The 15-page paper to the daily mirror. The study was compiled by Torsten Schneider-Haase, Director at TNS Emnid, the area of policy research.
Wagenknecht will remain group leader
On the exam the group of the 69 members had refrained from a critical settlement with wagenknecht to a large extent. You made it clear that she wants to run in the upcoming election of the group leadership again in the autumn. The exact date of the election of the group Executive Board is not yet established. According to schedule, he would have to take place before the state election in Thuringia. At the time of this election on the 27. October goes to the Left for the important question, whether you Post your Prime Minister- - since December 2014, Bodo Ramelow ruled can defend. It is not expected that the intra-party driven conflicts of Comrades in front of the Thuringia election to the top.
Wagenknecht protests against allegations that they would occupy topics similar to the AfD. "To me fishing is to blame on the right edge, is malicious," she is quoted as saying of the "Rheinische Post". But "if we don't Express the problems openly, we will facilitate it in the AfD, to exploit these Fears".
Lafontaine against poaching of skilled workers
Lafontaine, in turn, made in an Interview with the "Saarbrücker Zeitung" once again clear that it is Up to him and the collection movement, "" a reorientation of the refugee policy. He said: "We are certainly in favour of open borders, but we find that the boundaries should not only be after, but after the two sides open." Instead of "the billion only for the people that come to us," wool "Stand up" also, "that a part of this billion will be spent to help the millions of people in the Camps and hunger areas, which are too weak or too poor, to come to Germany". The Saarland Left party leader turned against the enticement of skilled workers from poor countries: "Today Doctors and nurses from Africa are recruited to work here, as there were no sick."
