Lower Saxony will elect a new state parliament on October 9th. According to surveys, the SPD has once again been able to increase its popularity slightly. The Greens are different.

A good two weeks before the state elections in Lower Saxony is the SPD in a poll, ahead of her current coalition partner, the CDU. If elected on Sunday, the Social Democrats would get 32 ​​percent of the votes, according to a new study by the opinion research institute infratest dimap commissioned by NDR. The SPD rose in favor with voters by one percentage point compared to the same survey in August, as did the CDU, which would therefore come to 28 percent. In Lower Saxony there will be elections on Sunday, October 9th.

The Greens lose two percentage points and would come to 17 percent. The FDP would just about make it into the state parliament with 5 percent (minus 1), the AfD improved by two percentage points to 9 percent. The left would not be represented in the state parliament with 4 percent (unchanged).

Grand coalition could continue work

This would allow the existing grand coalition of SPD and CDU to continue. This is considered unlikely, however Lower Saxony Prime Minister Stephan Weil (SPD) is campaigning aggressively for a new edition of red-green. After the 2013 election, Weil led a red-green coalition, although the SPD was more than three percentage points behind the CDU at the time.

For the representative opinion poll more than 1000 voters were questioned, as reported by the NDR on Thursday.
