Germany's Greens surge in EU vote as Merkel bloc's lead shrinks

Germany's Greens surge in EU vote as Merkel bloc's lead shrinksChancellor Angela Merkel's centre-right bloc was leading in European elections in Germany, exit polls showed Sunday, but the score was shaping out to be a historic low, while the Greens recorded a surge. Merkel's Christian Democratic Party and allies Christian Social Union were set to garner around 28 percent, two separate polls by national broadcasters ARD and ZDF showed, sharply under their 35.3 percent in 2014. The far-right AfD was set to improve on their 2014 score of 7.1 percent, with both exit polls seeing it coming in at 10.5 percent.
