Is Germany a democracy?

Europe is in a financial mess. The Greeks are bankrupt and are looking to the rest of Europe to bail them out. Europe relies on Germany in this regard. According to this article, however, 86% of Germans don't want to bail out the Greeks. And yet Angela Merkel has said that Germany is committed to being part of the bailout. I have no idea whether or not a Greek bailout is a good idea, but when 86% of your people don't want to do something how as a democracy can you defend doing it?
