A few months before the German elections, voters seem to start seeing the advantages of a Christian Democrat and Green coalition.

Asked which party CDU/CSU should consider as a potential coalition partner at the federal level, a third of those questioned voted in favour of the Greens, while a quarter voted for the liberal FDP party, according to a recent survey conducted on behalf of SPIEGEL.

Around 16% of those questioned were in favour to continue the Grand Coalition with of CDU/CSU and SPD, and almost 14% favoured a coalition with far-right AfD.

According to current polls, a so-called Black-Green coalition would probably not need another government partner, whereas all other conceivable coalitions would need at least one other coalition partner.
