stuttgart - In three states where nearly eighteen attend the eighty million Germans are Sunday elected new parliaments. The refugee debate dominates the vote to the dismay of the Christian Democrats. Spread over the generous price of Chancellor Angela Merkel of the CDU. Opponents of Merkel's CDU policy left the right-wing parties, left-wing supporters.

Approximately six months ago they opened the borders to refugees stranded in Budapest and assured the worried people in a television interview,, Wir procure tie '. In 2015 there were one million migrants.

The elections in Baden-Württemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saxony-Anhalt Sunday show how great the support for Merkel is. This could have consequences in the Bundesrat, have a kind of German Upper House, where delegates from the states seat. They can block Merkel's policies.

It is not an easy choice for voters, for example, in the largest of the three states, Baden-Wurttemberg. That goes a long time as a CDU stronghold. In 2011, the CDU managed to nearly 40 percent of the vote, but since then governs a green Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann, together with the Social Democrats (SPD).

The pragmatic Kretschmann is popular and frequently praises Merkel's policies. Some Christian Democrats are so annoyed about his praise for their chancellor, they make him 'The Stalker'. The CDU party leader in the state, Guido Wolf, Merkel not just praises. He distances himself as much as possible of its refugee policy, as many inside and outside the conservative CDU. Merkel urged the confused voters Tuesday still in the Württemberg Nürtingen:,, I tell the voters that everyone who supports my refugee policy, the CDU to vote and no one else. '

But the part of the electorate that says: 'We procure das nicht 'increases according to polls. And three years old Alternative for Germany (AfD) will be the better. The right-wing populist AfD manifests itself strongly against migrants and, according to polls be able to achieve 12.5 percent in Baden-Wurttemberg. In the other two states, the Dept doing well in polls. In Saxony-Anhalt, the CDU would remain the largest.

In Rhineland-Palatinate, the CDU is headed by Julia Klöckner, not a fan of Merkel's hospitality. She was named as successor to Merkel, the CDU Merkel could push aside. Klöckner is engaged in a vote contrary to the Social Democratic Prime Minister Malu Dreyer. Who fervently defended Merkel's policies.
