Chancellors can: Harald Schmidt on the electoral chances of the Greens


The actor and TV entertainer Harald Schmidt (61) considers the election of the Greens leader Robert Habeck to the Chancellor «not unlikely». He himself thinks Habeck is “great,” he said in an interview with the Augsburger Allgemeine. “But the exciting thing is: how does the shy deer voter behave when Habeck has to deliver, so when he becomes Federal Chancellor?” Schmidt asked.

Basically, he trusts Habeck the office: “Every Chancellor has grown into office very quickly. And that shows how good the separation of powers is, how good it is that we have the institutions, and how important it is that they work. “The question of whether he would also vote for Habeck was left unanswered in the interview.

Last time, he voted for CDU – «because I wanted Angela Merkel to remain Chancellor». He is a “strategic voter”. He also once voted for Gerhard Schröder's SPD, confirmed Schmidt in the interview.
