The poll also deals with the hot topic of China becoming part owner of German companies, a subject we covered yesterday. Germans are rightly not happy about this according to the new poll. See
According to a secret document from German Ministry of Economy, the idea of Chancellor Scholz to cede part of port of Hamburg to Chinese would be disastrous for Europe and Germany. According to the Managing Director of the Bild, the idea would be considered crazy.

Over 50% of Germans Believe Scholz Failing as Chancellor – Poll
BERLIN – More than half of German citizens believe that Chancellor Olaf Scholz is not up to the job, a poll carried out by the German Institute for New Social Answers (INSA) for the Bild newspaper showed on Monday.
According to the survey, which was conducted among 1,000 German citizens, 55% of Germans think that Scholz is not doing a good job as chancellor.
Of these, 24% think that is Scholz failing completely, while 31 percent believe that the chancellor is failing rather in his current tasks, the poll showed, adding that 37% of respondents disagree with the claim formulated in the poll.
The poll also found that, if it were possible to directly elect the head of government now, 27% would vote for Scholz, 15% would vote for the leader of the German conservative Christian Democratic Union, Friedrich Merz, while 49% would choose neither of the two candidates.
The majority of Germans consider Scholz to be overwhelmed
According to a representative survey by INSA for BILD, 55 percent of Germans consider Olaf Scholz (64, SPD) to be overwhelmed with his position as chancellor.
Scholz was recently criticized after pushing through a Chinese stake in a terminal in the port of Hamburg against all resistance from his traffic light coalition.
Next week the Chancellor will travel to China, where he will meet the sole ruler Xi Jinping (69) – making Scholz the first head of government from the West to go to China since the outbreak of the corona pandemic. Scholz is sending “the wrong signal,” criticized Manfred Weber (50), head of the conservative EPP group in the EU Parliament, to BILD.
The majority of INSA respondents is also against Chinese state-owned companies entering German companies.
