Munich (dpa / lby) - According to a representative survey by the opinion and market research institute GMS, people in Bavaria fear massive problems with the energy supply. Two-thirds (65 percent) of those surveyed answered no to the question of whether the federal government would be able to maintain security of supply through increased use of other energies and the procurement of replacement natural gas. Only 30 percent expect that the government will be successful with its measures, according to the GMS survey commissioned by "17:30 Sat.1 Bayern".
In addition, the federal government fell out of favor with voters. 63 percent of those questioned are dissatisfied with it (June 59 percent), only 32 percent (June 36 percent) are satisfied. Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) came off only marginally better with 62 percent dissatisfied and 34 percent satisfied.
On the other hand, around a year before the state elections, a majority of 57 percent are satisfied with the work of the state government, while 40 percent are dissatisfied. The Bavarian Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) received a similar assessment. For 56 percent he is a good prime minister, 40 percent don't think so. 81 percent of Bavarians believe that Söder represents Bavaria's interests and says what he thinks; 66 percent attest to his high level of expertise.
If the CSU were to be dependent on a coalition partner again in a year's time after the state elections, the picture would be vague: a quarter (25 percent) of those surveyed were in favor of the Free Voters, and 22 percent each for the FDP or the Greens.
If there were an election on Sunday, Bavarians would decide as follows: 40 percent would vote for the CSU, 18 percent for the Greens, 11 percent for the AfD, 10 percent for the Free Voters, 8 percent for the SPD, 6 percent for the FDP, 2 percent for the left and 5 percent for others.
