Christian Democrats get the most votes at 35.5 to 37 %
Social Democrats 33 or 34 %
Free Democrats 10.5 %
Greens 8.5 %
‘Left’ 7.5 to 8.5 %
Even worse, the first extrapolation on the first results bear that out.
Very bad news, no matter which possible coalition will govern – Grand coalition or Red-Left-Green – won’t push the urgently needed reforms through. It seems that my dear compatriots aren’t in enough pain yet.

No, Ralf, VERY bad news would have been a Schroeder victory. This is just plain old bad news.
He’s still trying to hold on by taking in the Free Democrats as a third party into a new coalition, rather tha forming a granbd coalition with the Christian Democrats as the stronger partner.
I’m sure that he won’t succeed, but this all a bit much.
Ach! You’d think with 11% unemployment the Germans would give change a try. Apparently not.
