Nowhere else does the black-green coalition option have as many advocates as among sympathizers of the Greens. The supporters of all parties can hardly imagine a Chancellor Friedrich Merz.
The coalition variant black-green has had a majority in the polls for months. Now the supporters of the Greens in particular are showing themselves open to this formation after the next federal election.
A good 60 percent of the Greens supporters want a coalition with CDU and CSU, just under 25 percent are against it. Opponents and supporters of black and green are in balance at the Union. This was the result of a survey by the polling institute Civey for SPIEGEL.
Overall, a good half of Germans are not supporters of a black and green option, and a third are in favor of this new government alliance at the federal level.
Who could lead such a government? 39 percent of Germans can imagine the Bavarian Prime Minister and CSU Chairman Markus Söder as Chancellor, the CDU rivals Friedrich Merz, Armin Laschet and Norbert Röttgen lie behind it.
Markus Söder is also the favorite among Union supporters, but with an even clearer margin: Around 61 percent vote for Bavaria, Friedrich Merz follows with only 20 percent in second place. Other possible candidates are far behind.
It is interesting to look at the Greens-Pendant. Here around 30 percent speak in favor of Söder. However, a good 36 percent also say they cannot imagine any of the Union politicians mentioned as black and green chancellors.
In an interview with SPIEGEL Friedrich Merz recently tried to position himself as a black and green candidate: “I have the confidence to make the Union profile clearly recognizable in a constellation with the Greens and to ensure that we are not only sensible in economic and fiscal terms Decide things, but also on socio-political issues. ” Merz said Black-green or Jamaica could possibly be the “only stable options” after the next federal election.
However, only a few Greens supporters can warm up for a black and green Chancellor Merz in the SPIEGEL survey: At only around four percent, he is not only far behind Söder, but also behind Health Minister Jens Spahn, foreign politician Norbert Röttgen and North Rhine-Westphalia’s Prime Minister Armin Laschet.
