As Germany's elections approach, one politician has emerged to give Chancellor Angela Merkel a run for her money in the polls.
"I cannot think of a Chancellor Obama, or a President Merkel," said Thomas Petersen, a pollster at the Institute for Allensbach, based in the southwestern state of Baden-Wuerttemberg.
"The perception is that Angela Merkel is reliable and the country is in good hands with her," Mr. Petersen said. "Merkel is much more popular than chancellors have been for a long time in Germany."
