Germany: AfD blows out results in municipal elections!

All that matters: 'More security for our women and daughters.' 

Germany's municipal elections typically give a very good idea of what will happen in the regional election happening just a week later. Yesterday, Germany's municipal elections saw Merkel's CDU drop from 33% to 28%. AfD surged from nothing to 13%. The Green Party got destroyed, going from 18% to 11.5%. Apparently nobody wants to vote for the loony Greens given their continued enthusiasm for multiculturalism and "refugees welcome."

AfD got an amazing 19% of the vote in Saxony-Anhalt in the east, 13% in the Black Forest state of Baden-Wuerttemberg and 9% in the typically liberal Rheinland-Palatinate. To get parliamentary representation, all they need is 5% in the elections one week ahead.

AfD performed better than it was polled. For example, polls in Frankfurt (Rheinland-Palatinate) had AfD getting only 6% of the vote, but during the election AfD scored 10%.

This is a good sign for the regional elections next week. Chances are, AfD will have seats in every regional government.
