Social Democracy - not very butch

From Deutsche Welle:

"The party is particular weak among men. In the FORSA survey, the SPD polled only 17 percent among German men -- the same as the Left party and only half as well as the conservative CDU/CSU".

Unless there are an awful lot of beardie weirdies and neo-nazis on the loose, presumably the thick end of two thirds of German men are rooting for the CDU/CSU or the Free Democrats.

Elsewhere, the extent of the hole the German Left has blundered into becomes clear:

"Germany's Social Democrats. Their support has dropped to a historic nadir of 20 percent...the FORSA poll also put support for the Left party at 15 percent, its highest showing ever and 1 percent better than the previous week. That suggests the SPD is caught between a rock and a hard place. Left-leaning voters are deserting the party because it is not progressive enough, while moderate ones reject the very idea of a coalition with those on the far left".

So, with a bit of luck the reds and the greens will be out office for years. Shame Merkel can't call an election now and kill off the current coalition, as she is within an ace of a majority, if allied with the Free Democrats.

I've always thought lefties are a bunch of sissies, anyway...
