Approval for traffic light coalition reaches new low

Since the federal election two years ago, citizens’ support for the traffic light government has continued to decline. Now it is lower than ever before.

Half of the legislative period is over and the federal government continues to lose favor with voters. Approval for the three traffic light parties is currently at its lowest level since the federal election two years ago, as can be seen from the weekly “Sunday Trend” from the Insa Institute for “Bild am Sonntag”. Taken together, the SPD, Greens and FDP come to 37 percent.



In 2021, the three parties received 52 percent of the votes cast. Since then, the SPD has particularly lost approval; it is currently at the previous week’s level of 17 percent. The Greens lost one percentage point compared to the previous week, but at 14 percent they are still close to their election results. The FDP currently remains at six percent approval – 5.5 percent less than in 2021.

According to the survey, the strongest force would still be the Union parties with 27 percent. That’s three percent more than in the election. The AfD, on the other hand, has made massive gains and, according to the “Sonntagstrend”, would get 22 percent in an election these days, more than twice as many votes. The Left remains at five percent in the survey, the other parties at nine percent, including three percent Free Voters.
