Two Deutsche Welle journalists crossed Germany to chart the mood ahead of the general election. The resulting film shows the breadth of opinion, reveals which issues voters care most about, and asks whether Angela Merkel can win a fourth time.
As Germany enters its third month without a new government, the Social Democrats are feeling the pressure from all sides. The SPD has given its clearest sign yet that it may spare the country fresh elections.
The Social Democrat left his post as head of the European Parliament to challenge Angela Merkel. As he lags in the polls, Schulz holds on to the hope that his enthusiasm can convince voters to abandon "aloof" Merkel.
What concerns German voters the most? This is what DW journalists Nina Haase-Trobridge and Sumi Somaskanda want to find out ahead of the nation’s parliamentary elections.
Leader Martin Schulz accepted the blame for the SPD's bitter defeat in the German election. His deputy has accused him of failing to recognize the seriousness of the party's crisis as political intrigue mounts.
