Check out my newest publication about the campaigns for the 2021 German General Election in “ Die Bundestagswahl 2021. Analysen der Wahl-, Parteien-, Kommunikations- und Regierungsforschung“ ed. by Karl-Rudolf Korte et al. here.
In this chapter, I look at the parties‘ situation at the onset of the 2021 election, discuss their campaigns, and the role of the media in this election, as well as the development of public opinion over the campaign based on data from the GLES rolling cross-section survey.
