Vanishing Voters - Germany's Christian Democrats in decline

Topic ADVANCE FOR USE SUNDAY, MAY 6, 2012 AND THEREAFTER - FILE - This combination of 2012 file photos shows U.S. President Barack Obama, left, and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in Boulder, Colo. and Cape Canaveral, Fla. How unthinkable it was, not so long ago, that a presidential election would pit a candidate fathered by an African against another condemned as un-Christian. And yet, here it is: Barack Obama vs. Mitt Romney, an African-American and a white Mormon, representatives of two groups and that have endured oppression to carve out a place in the United States. How much progress has America made against bigotry? (Foto:Carolyn Kaster, Charles Dharapak/AP/dapd)

Vanishing Voters - Germany's Christian Democrats in decline

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is more popular than her Christian Democratic party with German voters. In major cities, in particular, the conservative vote is on the decline. Now Stuttgart, long an unassailable Christian Democratic stronghold, has elected a Green Party mayor. But the conservatives are also struggling in other cities such as Hamburg. Why are so many voters abandoning the CDU?

Without Hope - The plight of Sinti and Roma in Germany

Many Sinti and Roma are fleeing to Germany in hopes of escaping poverty, misery and ongoing discrimination back at home. Most are from Serbia and Macedonia. In Germany, they have food and a roof over their heads - but little hope for a better future.

Baby Bust - Countering the demographic decline

Germany has the world’s second-lowest birth rate, after Japan. The birth rate in Germany today is only about half what it was 50 years ago. Demographic experts say this decline is in part due to many couples’ decision to postpone childbearing until their careers are on a solid footing.
