German polls show a new election would not change anything and that there is no real desire for another grand coalition.
The opposition Greens have hit a record high in a new opinion poll, pulling ahead of Angela Merkel's conservatives. The center-left SPD have dropped even further, slipping behind the far-right Alternative for Germany.
The Social Democrats slipped to 11% in a new Forsa poll, falling behind the far-right AfD. The environmentalist Greens remain the most popular party in Germany at 27%.
Germany's major parties have slumped again in the elections for the European Parliament, with the Social Democrats particularly hard-hit. The result could potentially accelerate Chancellor Angela Merkel's departure.
Only one third of Germans believe their defense minister, Ursula von der Leyen, is a good choice to lead the EU Commission, according to a survey. Many believe the state is too lenient with Neo-Nazis.
