ARD sees CDU ahead again.

CDU 34.6%
SPD 34.5%
Greens 12.1%
FDP 6.7%
Left Party 5.6%

seats unchanged. As for ZDF, they still see SPD ahead:

CDU 34.5%
SPD 34.6%
Greens 12.1%
FDP 6.7%
Left Party 5.6%

Their seat projection however is now identical to ARD's. No Red-Green then?... So the SPD's identity crisis can start again.

In the election TV shows, commentators emphasized that the SPD may have barred the option of a tripartite left-wing coalition, but not that of a Red-Green minority government with Left Party support. So will they pick that, or a Grand Coalition? (As for other tripartite variations, I don't think any of them are realistic in NRW.)
