Jens Spahn: So it is about satisfaction with his corona policy


The delayed vaccination start puts a damper on Spahn’s popularity.

Actually it could have been a moment of success after many difficult months, but the start of the vaccination in Germany was quite bumpy. This apparently also has consequences for Health Minister Jens Spahn (CDU). According to a recent Civey survey for NewsABC.net, 38.4 percent of Germans are dissatisfied with their corona crisis management. 48.2 percent, on the other hand, state that they are satisfied with Spahn’s work in the pandemic. A survey at the end of November showed that 56 percent of people were overall satisfied with Spahn’s political work.

For Spahn, that means a bitter damper. And that in the week in which the CDU elects a new chairman – and Spahn actually wants to set the course for his future. He will work in tandem with North Rhine-Westphalia’s Prime Minister Armin Laschet. As it is said, Spahn should at least be interested in the post of parliamentary group leader if Laschet, as the elected CDU leader, would also be candidate for chancellor. However, several media reports that Spahn has recently explored his own chances as a candidate for chancellor. He rejected that, but in the opinion of many observers he has not completely eradicated it.

Of course, such surveys on satisfaction with his Corona management come at a bad time for Spahn. Especially among the younger ones there are many who rate his work critically.

Women are apparently more gracious than men in the evaluation of health ministers. A slim majority of 50.6 percent were satisfied among female respondents. For men it was only 45.6 percent.

Other surveys also confirm the damper in Spahn’s popularity. According to “Deutschlandtrend”, 56 percent of those questioned were satisfied with the work of the health minister. This is still enough for third place among German politicians in this ranking, but it also means a drop in popularity of eight percentage points compared to December. In the Germany trend, Spahn currently has its lowest popularity rating since May 2020.
