Angela Merkel punished by voters for dithering over Greek bailout

The German chancellor's Christian Democrats (CDU) dropped more than 10% in the election in North Rhine Westphalia, according to exit polls. The CDU, which polled 34.5%, and its coalition partner, the Free Democratic party (FDP) – which secured 6.5% – no longer have an outright majority.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The media spin is that she should have acted sooner to save Greece, but in reality the polling is showing that the German voters were angry that Merkel was sending Germans' money to foreign nations at a time when Germany is suffering.
