Merkel starts panorama-train campaigning for election

German Chancellor Angela Merkel started on Tuesday a panorama train tour across the country to campaign for the general election, to be held on Sept. 27.

Earlier on Tuesday, Merkel and other senior leaders of the Christian Democratic Union party (CDU) boarded a train at Berlin central station to unveil the high-profile tour around the country.

According to her plan, Merkel is expected to take a train titled "Rheingold Express" from the former German capital of Bonn, then pass through the western German cities of Koblenz and Frankfurt, the eastern German cities of Erfurt and Leipzig, and finally arrive in Germany's new capital Berlin.

Earlier on Sept. 11, a poll by public TV channel ZDF showed that Merkel's CDU and the Free Democrats (FDP) each dropped one point in public support to 36 percent and 14 percent respectively. The Social Democrats (SPD), Merkel's top rival, remained unchanged at 23 percent, while the Green Party held at 11 percent and the Left Party dropped one point to 14 percent.

Merkel has vowed to form a government with the FDP after the election, but the combined support of the CDU and the FDP is still hovering at or below 50 percent. In the meantime, around 40 percent of German voters have not yet decided. Because of that, Merkel has to exert every effort to campaign for more ballots.
