Keith Gerein: Poll results show perils of partisan endorsements in Edmonton's civic election

  Keith Gerein: Poll results show perils of partisan endorsements in Edmonton's civic election “It’s not what you know. It’s who you know.” Most of us have heard the expression at one time or another, probably at moments of career crossroads or when seeking social ascendancy. Yet the expression also seems to have meaning in the world of elections, at least when it comes to the practice of endorsements. For federal and provincial elections, often the only endorsement that really matters is the one that comes from a candidate’s party. Simply being a nominee for the red, blue, orange or green can be enough for voters to decide whether to support or oppose. In municipal elections, the situation is more complicated.

ANGELA MERKEL's party is facing a shocking decline in polls just six weeks ahead of the federal general election in Germany. If the Germans could choose their chancellor directly, 26 percent would currently vote for Scholz, 16 percent for Baerbock and 12 percent for Laschet. Laschet cannot even count on the supporters of his party : only 39 percent of the Union supporters would currently elect the CDU leader as chancellor.

The politicians write, that they do not want a shift to the right, but an end of the drift to the left instead. The paper demonstrates how profound the uncertainty within the party has become due to recent electoral successes of the AFD. The FAZ was the first paper to give an account of the statement It is neither in our interest to criticize the Balkan states for the border closure, nor was it conducive for the election campaign of the CDU , to advocate keeping open the Balkan route a few days before March 13. The abolition of internal border controls in the Schengen area was combined with the promise to

In the face of weak survey values ​​, leading CDU politicians demand more momentum in the election campaign of their own party. Schleswig-Holstein's Prime Minister Daniel Günther (CDU) told the "Handelsblatt" to the previous election campaign: "That convinces no one." It now needs a greater content of content.

"We need to focus on the topics that are important to people," Günther said. The claim of CDU / CSU must be to lie with "at least 30 percent" - and "We are currently not fair to our own demands," he criticized.

Immediately following the end of World War II and the foreign occupation of Germany simultaneous yet unrelated meetings began occurring throughout the country, each with the intention of planning a Christian - democratic party . The party was split over issues of rearmament within the Western alliance and German unification as a neutral state. Adenauer staunchly defended his pro-Western position and outmanoeuvred some of his opponents. He also refused to consider the SPD as a party of the coalition until he felt sure that they

Germany’s election campaign thus far has been turbulent with the Greens in lead position earlier this year, polling ahead of the ruling conservative alliance headed by the outgoing Chancellor Angela Merkel. Germans will head to the polls to cast their ballots and decide the nation’s political future on September 26. After 16 years of service, Ms Merkel is leaving front line politics and Armin Laschet has been chosen by the Christian Democratic Union ( CDU )/Christian Social Union (CSU) alliance to replace her as party leader.

Günther warned his party but before a Debate about the candidate. "The question of who draws for us as a top candidate in the election campaign, we answered as a Union," he stressed. "We are wise to advise to pull everyone in a strand now." He expressly referred the appeal to the CSU. "For a common success we achieve with unity is also a success for the CSU," said Günther.

as a reason for the previous difficulties of the Union in the election campaign, the CDU politician called the flood disaster, which lases pay attention and prevented him at the election campaign. "This may have a certain trailer in the surveys," says Günther. "But hanger also means that it has to go up again."

Jagmeet’s flip-flop: A pandemic election was just fine last year

  Jagmeet’s flip-flop: A pandemic election was just fine last year Mike Smyth says Trudeau's federal Liberals are clearly on a snap-election footing, with regular spending announcements and cross-country road trips by key cabinet ministers. Ottawa sources have told multiple news outlets that Liberal party candidates have been told to rent office space, while party staffers have been ordered to cancel any looming vacation plans.

Key democratic institutions are losing people’s trust at a remarkable speed in the US, making it increasingly likely that the outcome of the 2020 election will be disputed and followed by a new wave of political instability. The key institutions in a democracy are losing their legitimacy as people do not trust the media, politicians , and now doubt the ability to hold fair elections as each side accuses the other of planning to rig the election or not accept the outcome. The national consensus is fragmenting, which expresses itself in the failure of democratic mechanisms and rise in political radicalism.

So the Election Commision of India is telling me - 'Hey, if you don't have a bias in opinion or a preference towards So yes they do have complete right to criticize the government policies if they find their money being misused. What choice did the Indian political parties throw at him? A mentally deficient princeling who can't be But politicians don't do that, their fanclubs think of it as blasphemy.

The East Commissioner of the Federal Government and CDU Bundestag MP Marco Hiking Wait was dissatisfied. "As a Union, we have not been able to make it clear to the citizens, that with Armin Lashet we have the best personnel offer and the best content offering," he said the "Rheinische Post" from Dusseldorf. "We have to refill."

Despite falling survey values, nothing was lost for the Union for a good six weeks before choice, said Walkwitz. "My feeling is, many voters do not really know who they want to entrust the land to Angela Merkel. The CDU must work out that red-red-green or a traffic light would lead our land into a left dead end."

The survey values ​​for the Union and especially for the Chancellor's candidates had fallen in recent weeks. A current FORSA survey sees the CDU / CSU at 23 percent - and thus only just before the Greens (20 percent) and the SPD (19 percent). Lashing came in the survey only to twelve percent consent. (AFP)

COMMENTARY: The most important number in this election campaign .
Why, pollster Darrell Bricker asks, are Canadians the most suspicious of what the Trudeau Liberals have planned for the country's future?It takes a lot to surprise me when I look at polling numbers. But I had a double take this week when I reviewed the data from our latest polling for Global News on the federal election.
