We had some discussion on this topic back in May. The FT this morning – in addition to reporting a change of tack by Hans Eichel and Wolfgang Clement on wage levels – suggests that the Democratic Left-PDS alliance was making headway:
An early poll for ZDF television showed 18 per cent of people would consider voting for the new leftwing coalition. Mr Lafontaine said he was optimistic the new group could become the third largest party. The conservative opposition currently has an overwhelming lead in opinion polls.
Any observations from Germany on all this?
