German Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats are facing a tough task to avoid defeat in a key state election today.

Opinion polls in the state suggest an emphatic re-election victory for the centre-left Social Democrats.

Analysts say voters look set to reject Merkel's tough line on fiscal discipline as a cure for state debt.

Recent polls in Greece, France and Italy have rejected austerity policies.
