Literal Question

Q.10a

(From January to November the question was:)
Are you more satisfied or more dissatisfied with the performance of the federal government (CDU/CSU-FDP)?

(After the Bundestag elections and the change of government connected with it the question for 13 and 14 was:)

Are you more satisfied or more dissatisfied with the performance of the government of SPD and Die Grünen in Bonn?
Please tell me with the aid of this scale from plus 5 to minus 5 again.
+5 means that you are completely satisfied with the performance of the government in Bonn. -5 means that you are not at all satisfied with performance of the government in Bonn. Again, you can express your opinion more precisely by using the values in between.
