Irish Times: CDU support slumps after far-right alliance with AfD:

Support for Germany's ruling party has collapsed 10 points to just 12 per cent in the eastern state of Thuringia as voters react to its alliance with the far right to elect a state premier.

[...]

In another survey issued on Friday, 58 per cent of Thuringian voters said it was wrong for Mr Kemmerich to rely on AfD support for power. A third of voters saw no problem in alliances with the AfD, which in seven years has radicalised from its bailout protest roots into a far-right movement.

And the support has gone mostly to the Left, with a bit to the Greens. So its likely the CDU will want to avoid an election and just do a confidence vote instead.
