Greens are huge this year with the under 30 folk. Very understandable, I guess.

Also, the backlash against the hard right seems to finally have curbed their rise for once. They're underperforming polls in a lot of places.

I was hoping it to be that way.

The far-right almost 100% relies on the topic of migration. It has always been that way.

The migration crisis from 2015 is a thing of the past, so the attention of the people is shifting to other problems. I don't believe that backlash against the far-right has worked at all, rather it's that the drastic reduction in migration took the wind out of their sails.

There's another reason: People actually went to vote.

Low turnout always favors the more extreme parties, as their supporters go and vote either way. On a low turnout, that makes a big part of the total votes. However, when the turnout is high, they get overshadowed by the mass of votes to the other parties, making their share of votes pretty small in the end.
