Who do your want to win?

CDU/CSU 31 10.69%
 
SPD 23 7.93%
 
Left 30 10.34%
 
Greens 12 4.14%
 
FDP 17 5.86%
 
AfD 59 20.34%
 
another one of the parties on ballot 6 2.07%
 
a party not on ballot 6 2.07%
 
no one 17 5.86%
 
see results 89 30.69%
 
Total:290

Just what I expected. Every vote for AFD is a vote for Merkel and that's exactly what you get. 4 more years of Merkel.

SPD don't want to be in the government any more so there are only 3 realistic outcomes left.

1. CDU-FDP-Green coalition (only ever happened on federal state level)
2. Minority government led by CDU (highly unlikely IMO)
3. New election

AFD getting 13.3%, better than polling expected. CDU doing far worse than expected, going from 42% to 32% of the vote, while the SPD getting just 20%. This means Merkel's party will lose nearly 100 seats, SPD will lose 59, while the AFD will gain 88.



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

New Numbers:

CDU 33,3%
SPD 20,9%
Linke 9,0 %
Grüne 9,4 %
FPD 9.9%
AFD 13,2 %

i'm ignorant on Merkel. Can I hear thoughts about her? Only ones I've seen are from the cesspool(s) known as the RT comment section

I tried to explain her to a friend the other day and it went something like this: She's like a river pebble. She has no refining edges or sharp angles and she will usually go where the flow of majority opinion takes her. That being said, she is also resilient and sturdy. She projects the picture of stability and consistency, but actually moves quite a lot, albeit slowly.

She has singlehandedly moved the CDU so much into the center that even liberal people just kind of shrug and go: 'I guess she's ok.' She STILL to this date greatly benefits from Job market and economy reforms introduced by the central-left/green coalition under Schroeder and will admit to that gleefully.

Those same reforms combined with the splintering off the far left wing of the SPD and the first 'great coalition' under Merkel is what sunk the SPDs traditional values in the eyes of many left and far left voters, while Merkel constistently dug into the central left side of the party and carved out voters from there.

A lot of the same goes for the green parties tanking votes, after they, in the eyes of many of their traditional supporter base, sacrificed their own values to gain power and entered a rather disastrous coalition with the CDU in the state of Hamburg. They had very little to show for it when the state government fell apart there, other than having enabled a potentially disatrous cole-fired power station, with river cooling and further artificial deepening of that same river, both of with they had heavily campaigned against during the election. It spooked many of their steadfast trational voterbase, with little alternative to turn to. Additionally to that they showed growing conservative values in other states as well, wich was wierd to see from a former anti-establishment party to say the least.

While an SPD/Left party/green coalition would have been feasible in the last few elections, it didn't come to pass because of infighting between the parties and rather petty grudges being held.

So Merkel gratly benefits from being so moldable, never showing much of a profile beyond 'reliable' and a very weak compitition that more or less self-distructed in a couple of ways.

 

On a side note, I sincerly hope that those AFD votes on the thread poll are troll votes. They are a nothing of an incompetent mess of a party, composed of very little other than actual former Nazi offspring, neo Nazis and raging xenophobia, sexism, fear-mongering and anti-european values. As some others here pointed out their actual election program offers very little of value, and the fact that they are polling as high as they are (in the real polls) despite germany being an economically well-off country with low unemployment rates and a healthy middle class is appalling.

No wonder why the people in Russia Today despise her. She seems like a decent leader.

 

Does she have any huge controversies to her like Theresa May or Donald Trump?

A victory for the Far right is the story of this election imo





Remember: one of the AfD's leader is Alice Weidel, a lesbian in a relationship with a Sri Lankan immigrant. They live in Switzerland where they employed a Syrian refugee to clean their home for 25 Swiss francs (€21,58 or $25,79) an hour, under the table.
These are the pro-Germany, anti-refugee and anti-gay marriage political leaders in Germany people.

Being a massive hypocrite has never saved anyone from being a shitty politician, trying to put inhumane legislation into effect. May I introduce you to the President of the United States?
