Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Fifty-three percent of Germans oppose further aid for Greece and wouldn't save the country from default unless it fulfills terms of the rescue agreement, Bild am Sonntag reported, citing an Emnid poll of 503 respondents conducted Sept. 8.

From today's Bloomberg. Once again we see confirmation polls used as propaganda. Can you imagine if 15.09 of those vastly representative 503 people were told that bailout funds go to German banks, they would change their views and we would be 50-50. Heck, i'll bet i could find 15.23 people just here in the neighborhood, with a margin of error at +- 4.6 kmh€.

Only 53%? That's good. And I don't think more people would support a bank bail-out.
