Nearly 40 per cent of Germans want Angela Merkel to resign, poll finds

Almost forty per cent of Germans believe Angela Merkel should resign over her handling of the refugee crisis, according to a new poll released on Friday.

The findings are the strongest indication yet of the degree of public opposition the German chancellor is facing over her controversial “open-door” refugee policy.

The poll was released just hours after Mrs Merkel and her coalition partners agreed to toughen Germany’s asylum rules in the wake of the Cologne sex attacks.

    What do the other 60 percent think?

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      The other sixty percent are blissfully unaware of the precarious economic state of Europe.

      I was thinking the other 60% are certifiably retarded.

  • Brett_McS

    That 40% would be mostly made up of the Germans who normally vote for her party.

  • BillyHW

    OMG only 40%? We’re utterly doomed.

    • Exile1981

      40% want her to resign,
      10% screamed allah akbar and stabbed the pollster
      25% asked for another beer and
      25% want to see her hung.

    “Mrs Merkel and her coalition partners agreed to toughen Germany’s asylum rules…”

    …Which they’ll relax again before the week is out once the bleeding hearts and the perpetual offended cry foul.

    Good luck with that. Merkel’s ego is much bigger than Germany.

    So here we go again , one media reports that the Politicians claim that the gang- rapes and assault to about 600+ women had NOTHING to do with Migrants .
    But because the rapes had NOTHING to do with muslim migrants the answer to deal with German born males that did it is to ” toughen Germany’s asylum rules in the wake of the Cologne sex attacks.”

    Reminds me of when Police Chief Blair held his press release to the public in an islamic Centre full of quran reading pro-sharia pakistani background muslims to tell us that the quran reading , mosque going, pro-sharia pakistani background Toronto-18 young muslim males had NOTHING to do with islam, or being muslims.

    No wonder the islamophilic Blair is now a Liberal MP under the Pro-sharia law islamophilic Justin Trudeau. But wait……. Didn’t Chief Blair want go after Rob Ford retro-actively for alleged purchases of illegal drugs and yet did nothing when Justin said he bought illegal drugs and used them even as an MP ????
    The Police are now Social Workers with Guns while taking their orders from the Human Rights Commission for which groups have to follow which laws .
