German national election too close to call, polls suggest, as key candidates hold final rallies

Poll predictions on Saturday point to the center-left Social Democrats (SPD) holding a small but narrowing lead over Merkel’s party, the center-right Christian Democratic Union (CDU).

Merkel has been a symbol of stability in Europe since she took on the role of chancellor in 2005. But after almost 16 years in the top job, she will step down once it becomes clear who her successor will be.

The SPD and CDU, the two largest parties in German politics, have been sharing power under Merkel’s fourth term as chancellor.

CDU leader Armin Laschet, the party’s candidate to be the next chancellor and premier of North Rhine-Westphalia, held a final campaign rally with Merkel in Aachen on Saturday.

A boy presented Merkel, 67, with a gingerbread heart iced with the words “Thanks CDU,” and another supporter gave her a cake decorated with a picture of her trademark rhombus hand gesture.

Rival candidate Olaf Scholz, from the Social Democrats, is holding his last rally Saturday in his constituency in Potsdam. Scholz has been serving as the vice-chancellor and German finance minister since 2018.

FDP leader Christian Lindner ends his election campaign with rallies in Cologne and Düsseldorf.

Olaf Scholz, German finance and SPD candidate for chancellor in the federal election, speaks at a campaign event in his constituency in Potsdam on Saturday.

According to the latest polls, the Social Democrats are polling at 25.2% and could gain 4.7 percentage points compared to the 2017 national elections. This lead could mean a reversal of a 20-year-long downward trend for the Social Democrats. Over the past two decades, the party has lost around half of its voters.

Sleeping Beauty's forest is dying. It's not the only climate crisis facing Germany's next chancellor

The Christian Democrats are trailing several percentage points behind the SPD at around 22.4%, polls indicate. This could mean a loss of 10.5 percentage points compared to the 2017 national elections, and of 19.1 percentage points compared to the 2013 elections.

The Greens are currently polling at 15.9%, in third place. However, the ecological party could record the strongest growth of all parties in the next federal election, with a potential gain of 7.5 percentage points compared to the last national elections in 2017. The Greens’ leader, Annalena Baerbock, has emerged as a contender for chancellor and potential kingmaker in the coalition negotiations expected to follow Sunday’s vote.

Germany’s business-friendly Free Democratic Party (FDP) is polling at 11.1% and is slated to make only marginal gains compared to the last national elections, according to poll predictions.

The far-right Alternative for Germany party (AfD) is polling at 10.6% — a decrease of 2 percentage points compared to the 2017 national elections.

The AfD — which saw a marked success in the 2017 elections following the influx of refugees into Germany in 2015 — has struggled to keep its momentum going since and has faced harsh criticism over ties to the extreme far-right.

The closeness of the race coupled with Germany’s complicated voting system means it could take some time before a winning coalition is formed and the ultimate victor is known.

Environmental concerns and economic worries have emerged as key issues in campaigning, with the former fueled by the deadly floods that devastated parts of Germany this summer.

Shooting outside of Alabama high school football game halts the contest and causes alarm in the stands

The man was at a tailgating event at a Fairfield High Preparatory School parking lot when he was shot in the buttocks — with the gunfire apparently coming from near an abandoned house — around 9:45 p.m., the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said.

The gunfire halted the football game between Fairfield High and Birmingham’s Jackson-Olin High. A sheriff’s deputy got onto the field and waved for people — including players and coaches — to get onto the ground, video from WBMA shows.

“Stay calm. Stay down,” an announcer says over the public address system, as players were prone on the field and sidelines. Some spectators ran while others sat or crouched in the stands amid shouts of fright and concern.

The players eventually were directed to get up and leave the field.

Deputies searched the area but did not immediately find the shooter, the sheriff’s office said.

The gunshot victim was taken to a hospital with a non-life-threatening wound, according to the sheriff’s office.

Fairfield is just outside Birmingham.

The remainder of the game was postponed until Saturday, the sheriff’s office said.

This loungewear brand does things differently — and reviewers are obsessed



CNN
—  

If you’re like most people, you look forward to your downtime more than any other part of your day — so why are you throwing on your oldest sweats and that concert T-shirt that’s falling apart at the seams? Instead, you should be sleeping and resting wisely. That’s why Lunya sleepwear is a worthy investment that prioritizes practicality and self-care at the same time.

How is this brand different from all of the other loungewear brands out there? After she struggled to find comfortable, high-quality, flattering pajamas, Lunya founder and CEO Ashley Merrill set out to create her own. Her company only uses thoughtful fabrics that are truly “Good in Bed,” not to mention everywhere else in your home; the luxurious silk is washable, the cozy cotton-silk blend helps to balance body temperature no matter the season and the organic pima feels like you’re wearing nothing at all.

In addition to their emphasis on creating quality loungewear, Lunya is also committed to sustainable manufacturing practices; the brand researches, partners with and monitors leading designer factories, all of which treat their employees fairly and use eco-friendly processes.

If you’re looking to transform your leisure time from an afterthought to a designated self-care practice, check out a few of Lunya’s top sellers below. New customers can save $20 off of their first purchase with code CNN20 — and with the holidays coming up, we should also point out that these are great for gifting.

Washable Silk Robe ($248; lunya.co)

The Lunya washable robe might just become the best part of your day. It’s made from 100% genuine silk, so it caresses your skin and regulates your body temperature — but since you can just throw it in the machine, it can stand up to it all. The pockets are roomy, the cuffed sleeves stay dry whether you’re washing your face or the dishes and the 10 color options are vivid and gorgeous, even though they use extra-safe dyes. No wonder this robe has hundreds of 5-star reviews.

Cozy Cotton Silk Jogger ($218; lunya.co)

Joggers are back in style, but these ones take comfort and practicality to the next level. Since they’re constructed from a blend of cotton and silk, they’re adaptive enough for any season; they’ll remain cool and breathable during the hottest summer months, but they’re still ideal for cozying up on the couch when you’re binge-watching your favorite holiday movies. Last but definitely not least, the waistband won’t twist and the drawstring won’t get lost.

Organic Pima Romper ($168; lunya.co)

Looking for the ideal work-from-home outfit? Look no further than Lunya’s organic pima romper. Even though it’s versatile and on-trend (and you can easily layer a cardigan over it for a Zoom call), the super-breathable fabric makes you feel like you’re wearing nothing at all. It comes in four easy-to-match colors, and all of them have built-in pockets. “I’ve bought these in black and dark gray,” one reviewer raves. “They are so cute and comfy, I don’t want to get dressed.”
