(By David and Ray D.)
German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder has dropped to an all time low ranking of 13th on the list of the most popular politicians in his country. This is the first time in his career that he has fallen from the Top Ten list.
WELT: "Never before has a Chancellor fallen so far so quickly as Schroeder has since his re-election in Fall 2002."
FOCUS: Schroeder Takes a Dive: "Not even a third of German citizens rate the Chancellor's work as good."
Just 30 % of Germans still hold him and his policies in high regard. Now, the good news: Among SPD voters (SPD = Social Democrats; Schroeder's party) he still gets a top rating. The bad news: There aren't many SPD voters left...
Gerhard would kill for Dubya's poll numbers, but according to the German media it's Bush who is under pressure...go figure.
Schroeder's standing not very high in Germany...
