Most Germans want Greece out of eurozone

More than half of Germans believe debt-stricken Greece should leave the eurozone, according to a poll published on Friday amid a flaring war of words between Athens and Berlin.

And 80 percent believed Greece is not acting in a reliable manner in its negotiations with eurozone partners, according to a Politbarometer survey released by public broadcaster ZDF.

The proportion of respondents who think Greece should stay in the currency union has fallen to 40 percent from 52 percent two weeks ago, while 52 percent now believe it should leave, up from 41 percent.

Only 11 percent now think the government in Athens is behaving in a trustworthy way in talks with its EU partners.
