Support for Angela Merkel's conservatives has slipped as more voters turn to the anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD), a poll showed Wednesday, a year after the chancellor prompted criticism by saying Germany would cope with the migrant crisis.A Forsa poll showed support for her conservatives, still the biggest group, had fallen to 33 percent, down two points from last week and eight points from a year ago. The Forsa poll showed support for all other parties was unchanged with the Social Democrats (SPD), who share power with Merkel's conservatives on 22 percent.
