Merkel’s celebration, the CDU, does extremely deparately want young voters. They are losing votes in substantial margins. Almost 9% minus in the final federal elections in 2017 (although nevertheless the most seats in parliement), and more than six% minus in the election to European parliament this year. They get a lot of heat due to the fact of their as well conservative climate policy, on the web copyright policy, automobile sector protectionism and so on. This spring a german youtuber chewed them out in a video that got millions of views inside days and got picked up by each and every important German news outlet and sparked a huge public discussion.

I know Merkel is extremely well-known all about the planet, but the reality is she and her celebration are extremely conservative. She is the head of the government due to the fact of coalitions with other people parties. She personally polled extremely powerful in the final years, but we do not vote persons in Germany for chancellor, but parties for the parliament and far more than 50% or even 60% of Germans do not vote for her celebration. (just in case you could be from a nation unfamilar with an electoral method with proportional represantation).
