2017 will most likely become a year of important political vintage in Europe. While it already featured elections in the Netherlands, Great Britain and France, all eyes are now on the outcome of the German elections. While many political systems in Europe are under assault of populist challengers, German politics seemingly has been a source of stability. This "eupinions" report takes a closer look at the contours of German public opinion.
