Greens have replaced the SPD in Germany and something Putin and Juncker appear to agree on

Today's daily is a grab bag of topics that I have been thinking about over the past week. I have a backlog of stories from earlier in the week I missed. So let me add these into the mix today.

But first up today is this chart from German public TV station ARD which bolsters the case I was making about the Green Party in Germany taking over the center-left mantel from the SPD.

You can see that the Greens are now the second most popular party in Germany, well ahead of the SPD. Equally noteworthy is that the AfD continue to poll above the SPD.

We now have two parties in Germany with about 20-25% of the vote count who are not natural allies at the federal level. And then we have 4 different parties around the 10-15% range who could slot in to a multi-party governing coalition.
