Germans are divided on whether Greece should stay in the eurozone.

An opinion poll conducted for public broadcaster ARD found that 45 percent of Germans say Greece should keep the common currency. An equal number say Greece should leave the eurozone.

Sixty-nine percent of respondents say they are concerned about the impact that a possible bankruptcy of Greece might have on the country's population. Some 31 percent say they are worried about the cohesion of the European Union, while 24 percent are concerned about the consequences that such a possibility might have for the German economy.

The telephone poll of 1,001 adults, published Friday, was conducted from June 29-30. It had a margin of error of up to 3.1 percent.
