Germany's Super Election Year - the countdown, the polls, and the candidates

As the Federal Election approaches, Germany's Super Election Year is shaping up to be a nail-biter. The latest #KnutsLogbook, this week from Hamburg.

As the Federal Election approaches, Germany's Super Election Year is shaping up to be a nail-biter. Earlier in the year, outgoing Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) enjoyed a comfortable lead in the polls, but are now lagging behind the Social Democrats (SPD). The Greens, meanwhile, have had crises of confidence and trust, and are now third in the polls. Of the three candidates to succeed Merkel in the Chancellory, Olaf Scholz (SPD) has shown that competence and a steady hand is what people want. #KnutsLogbook
