    Polls indicate that German Chancellor Angela Merkel's Bavarian allies are heading for their worst showing in state elections in over 60 years.

    The Christian Social Union, which has governed Bavaria for most of the post-war period, looks set to lose its majority in Sunday's vote.

    Despite a booming economy, one issue has dominated the campaign: Immigration.
