Support for Merkel’s coalition partner SPD is in a state of collapse. And it’s not just a single poll.

Clear National Trends
Hesse State Election October 28
In the last two Hesse State Polls, the Green party is averaging 21%, SPD 20.5%, and CDU 26%.
There are currently 110 seats in the Hesse Parliament.
That number can change and indeed is likely to go higher as Linke, FDP, and AfD will all gain seats based on a 5% threshold.
The Next Hessian Parliament will look a lot different.
This splintering will do Merkel no good. The greens are pro-immigration but CSU, AfD, andf FDP are not,
This is an impossible tightrope for Merkel.
