Polls favor Olaf Scholz's Social Democrats

Germans have only a few hours left to elect the new federal parliament, the Bundestag.

Official data show that 35% of citizens are undecided, thus increasing the commitment of Armin Laset of the Christian Democratic Union, Olaf Scholz of the Social Democrats and Analena Bermpok of the Greens to win their trust.

The polls speak of a lead for the Social Democrats, although in some cases the margin is very narrow with the Christian Democratic Union.

Scholz decided to close the campaign in his constituency of Potsdam, where he focused his last speech on an issue that concerns almost the majority of German voters, the costs of renting a house.

Scholz pointed out that more than 800,000 apartments are under construction in several German cities to offer them at low prices so that supply and demand bring affordable prices to them.

Pressed for time to get ahead, Laset also went outside Berlin for his rally.

Accompanied by acting Chancellor Angela Merkel, the Christian Democrat candidate stopped at the latest rally in his hometown of Aachen.

But the senior politician is seen with a lot of skepticism. His appearance laughing and joking during German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier's visit to areas affected by the deadly floods has led 60% of Germans to believe that Lasset has no ability to deal with natural disasters.

Polls list the Greens with their candidate Analena Bermpok in third place. In the age group, 18 to 29 years old, 36% are in favor of the party she leads.  

In the 2017 election, the first preliminary results were announced just 15 minutes after the polls closed.

But the final results, also referring to the past elections, are not expected before Monday. These elections will also end the era of Merkel, who will leave the government after 16 years.
