Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The SPD won in Berlin, Brandenburg, Bremen, Hamburg, Hessen, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Niedersachsen, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Saarland, Sachsen-Anhalt, Schleswig-Holstein, and very narrowly Thüringen.

The CDU/CSU won Baden-Württemberg, Bayern, and Sachsen.

I can't find the preliminary official result of Rheinland-Pfalz (it could have gone either way, but I predict it narrowly went SPD).

But you can see that if you go state by state, the SPD did very well. It's kinda ludicrous to think the CDU wants to lead the country, having won a majority in only three states.
