For anyone interested in the German elections, here are the most recent opinion polls in Germany. There is a surprising lack of polls carried out in the last few days – presumably there isn’t any law against them, since Forsa have managed to put one out with fieldwork carried out midweek.
At the last German elections in 2005 the polls performed very poorly – showing CDU leads between 7 and 9 points, when they ended up leading by only 1 point. Let’s see if they’ve done any better this time round.
UPDATE: Prior to the election the German electoral commission made a great fuss about the risk of people leaking exit polls on Twitter, which frankly is asking to become a self-fulfilling prophesy. Amusingly though, with twenty minutes to go Twitter is now flooded with lots of people posting contradictory fake exit polls.
