In what can be regarded as a major setback for the pro-invasion parties in Germany, the Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) has polled at least 24 percent of the vote in Saxony-Anhalt, 14 percent in Baden-Württemberg, and 12 percent in Rhineland Palatinate during state elections today. The projections will be finalized as all the results come in, but are unlikely to change dramatically.
The projections, made an hour after polling had closed, predicted that in the state of Saxony-Anhalt, the AfD would come to within 5 percent of the ruling Christian Democratic Union (CDU) vote, becoming the second largest party.
In the other two states, the AfD became the third largest party. The AfD’s vote totals were all substantially higher than the polls had predicted, indicating a large margin of error, probably due to the climate of terror which the CDU has created about anyone dissenting from the planned nonwhite destruction of Germany.
The results are a blow for the Socialist Party of Germany (SPD) in particular. As Angela Merkel’s coalition partner, the SPD leader Sigmar Gabriel occupies the vice-chancellor post, and has been vituperative in his attacks on the AfD and vocal in his support for the invasion.
Significantly, exit polls indicated that most AfD voters in Saxony-Anhalt came from previous non-voters—people who either had never voted before, or first-time voters.
Some 40 percent of AfD voters in that state said they had not voted in the 2011 elections, while a further 11 percent said that they had voted for the National Democratic Party of Germany (NPD) at the last elections. Some 10 percent had previously voted for the SPD. Previous CDU voters were conspicuously absent in these polling figures.
As a result of the first-time voter turnout, the polling figures were substantially higher than the 2011 elections. In Saxony-Anhalt, turnout was 63 percent, more than 10 percent higher than 2011. In Rhineland-Palatinate and Baden-Württemberg, more than 70 percent of the electorate turned up to vote.
An earlier poll which focused on Saxony-Anhalt voters found that in the age group 18- to 24-year-olds, the NPD polled on average 10.1 percent. It seems that the NPD’s appeal to its voters to support the AfD has worked, although for political reasons, the AfD has eschewed any cooperation with the nationalist party.
Nonetheless, the results are important in that they indicate that a sizeable segment of the population is completely opposed to Merkel’s policies. CDU strategists warned earlier that a result like that seen today would give the AfD the credibility it needs to push on to even greater successes in the national elections scheduled for 2017.
The state election results will also now dramatically increase pressure on Merkel from within her own party, and several senior party officials have already started speculating in the media that Merkel will have to be replaced and the invasion stopped if the CDU is to remain in government after 2017.
