Only 20 percent of Germans say they are satisfied with Chancellor Olaf Scholz's government action. It is the result of a survey carried out by the Infratest dimap opinion poll institute for the radio and television broadcaster "Ard". The figure marks the historic low reached by a head of the federal executive since the beginning of this survey in 1997.
Scholz's popularity has dropped eight points since last November. As "Ard" highlights, the result is particularly shocking because it comes on the second anniversary of the signing of the pact with which the German Social Democratic Party (SPD), the Greens and the Liberal Democratic Party (FDP) formed the government led by Scholz.
