> German Chancellor Angela Merkel's chances at retaining her post could be plummeting. A poll for German broadcaster, Zed DF, showing just 38% want Merkel to be their chancellor. The survey putting European Parliament President Martin Schulz ahead on 49%. That's a significant turn around. Until recently, Merkel has been a clear favorite to win the Federal election set for September.
But then Schultz entered the race, boosting his prospects and those of his Social Democrat Party. The junior party in Merkel's ruling coalition now eyeing an election win for the first time since 2002. But Merkel's conservatives might not be panicking just yet. The survey a sample size of 1,231 people.
And Brexit and Donald Trump's victory prove pollsters don't always get it right.
