Forecast for German national election


forsa in co-operation with SORA for RTL

After the successful parallel count of the Bulgarian Parliamentary Elections in May, SORA participated in election night forecasts for the first time for a German national election.

For this job, SORA was invited by the renowned forsa institute which already provided the most precise forecasts for the preceding three nationwide elections. And yet again, it was head of forsa Prof. Manfred Güllner who outperformed all competitors with an extremely accurate forecast for the TV station RTL.

Precision landing after weeks of intensive preparation

On election night, weeks of intensive preparation culminate for the experts working on the forsa and SORA teams.

“SORA has provided analyses and forecasts in more than 50 elections, but the contract for Germany was an exciting new challenge", says Christoph Hofinger. "We are honored by the trust that forsa put in the work of our team."
