Poll: Schröder Should Stay in Office

Despite his low popularity rating and his party's disastrous results in recent regional and European elections, most Germans say they want their chancellor, Gerhard Schröder, to stay in office. A survey released on Friday by pollster Infratest dimap for German public broadcaster ARD found that 57 percent of those polled felt Schröder should keep his job. Thirty-six percent said it was time to show him to the door. But the poll also found something that should keep Schröder awake at night: If national elections were to be held on Sunday, 45 percent say that would vote for the conservative opposition Christian Democrats, with only 24 percent casting ballots for Schröder's Social Democrats.
