Laschet bathes the consequences of years of conflict in his party.

Robert Birnbaum 2 hrs ago. | Only if the Union sees itself as a team does he have a chance. A commentary. Those who are behind in the election campaign like to use soccer images. Candidates are encouraged to storm the field, the race to catch up is invoked, and team play is emphasized. In the last point, at least, the comparison is right. If the team doesn't play along, the striker hustles in vain, and the born midfielder is lonely in a lost cause anyway. Simple truths, really. Nevertheless, they were long forgotten at the Union. Yet team play is the only thing that can save the CDU and CSU the cup. Armin Laschet alone can't do it. This is unusual for both parties because they have long sat back and relied on their top people. The fact that the chancellor won the election even after the refugee dispute has triggered a kind of invincibility mania in the CDU - despite all the defeats in other countries: We're ahead anyway. People paid little attention to their political rivals and instead spent a lot of time fighting for positions in their own camp. Now the same people who accused Merkel of "social democratization" of the CDU are surprised that some of Merkel's voters have no problem with a Social Democrat - especially not if he, like Olaf Scholz, is playing Merkel. Laschet, who as chairman and as a candidate for chancellor is himself a product of the division in his party, is suffering the consequences of years of conflict. No one can resolve them in the four weeks until the election. But the SPD - which, as we all know, is not a stronghold of unity either - is showing how to push them into the background. They will remain there as long as Scholz pulls the party along in the polls. Laschet must hope for the opposite effect: that voters end up accepting the person because they also base their decision on program, party and coalitions.

Is frustration spreading among Laschet after "Triell"? - "Not at all." The first Triell was more helpful for Laschet - just as it was for Annalena Baerbock, by the way - than the snap poll afterwards would suggest. Such events don't bring about radical trend reversals. Those who find Scholz more statesmanlike than the other two will stick with them. Nevertheless, the appearance offered both the Christian Democrat and the Green Party an opportunity to shed some of their deadbeat image. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Heidelberg satirist Wolfgang Hampel has again achieved a high Amazon bestseller rank in Germany with Satire ist mein Lieblingstier ( Satire is my favorite animal ).
