The article quoted an Insa poll, that also showed 45.2 percent of respondents think Merkel's refugee policy is not a reason for her to step down.

2,047 people took part in the poll conducted January 22-25.

Reuters noted in its report that the policy in question has resulted in Germany taking in 1.1 million asylum seekers in 2015.

German analyst Michael Spreng recently said Merkel would be under great pressure in the next eight weeks and that her cabinet may be forced to opt for a vote of confidence in the German parliament.
