Germany's September national elections are rapidly approaching, and there are signs that it could start to get interesting.

Alternative für Deutschland  (AfD) – a new political party running on a platform advocating dissolution of the euro – is already making impressive gains in the polls, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel's incumbent government is losing support.

In a new poll released today, support for Merkel's center-right coalition fell to 42%, meaning they are without a majority heading into September. Another poll showed their support slipping to 37% from 40%.
