BERLIN, Germany - Amidst reports that Russian President Vladimir Putin is “out to destroy Angela Merkel by hacking the German election” new polls now have revealed that the German Chancellor is well on her way to defeat the competition.

A new poll published for the German broadcaster ARD is said to have found that 49 percent of respondents said they will vote for the current Chancellor.

Merkel is seen to be effectively defeating former EU chief Martin Schulz to secure another term as German Chancellor in the country’s upcoming elections.

The German media has attributed the surge in support for the Chancellor to her previous work, that is seen as the driving force.

According to the figures released in the poll, 63 percent respondents are pleased with her work, and 72 percent of those voters are said to be backing her because she “ensures the people in the country are doing well.”

Further, it shows that other satisfied respondents claimed she ensures that Germans “are doing well in a restless world.”

However, 52 percent voters said she is set to experience her worst days.

The once-strong support base for Martin Schulz is seen to be fast-depleting as the elections, scheduled for September approaches soon.  

The broadcaster reported that only 42 percent of respondents approved of his previous work.

Last year, Schulz rose to prominence with his Europhile views.

The former president of the European Parliament said while announcing his election campaign that he was prepared to abandon the crumbling bloc.

He had added, “Those who do not want the United States' protection policy, and who do not want Brexit to win must be committed to deepening the Eurozone.”> BNN

Meanwhile, Garry Kasparov, who fled Russia after being driven out of his home country for opposing Putin has said that the Russian leader views the removal of Merkel as the key to crushing the European Union.

Kasparov reportedly said, “Putin is all about destruction. Putin wants to absolutely prevent Merkel's re-election. Merkel is the key figure of the EU. Putin knows: As long as Merkel exists, the sanctions remain. The Soviet Union presented an alternative ideology. Putin is not an ideologist, he's all about destruction."
