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

As she stands for nothing: no. Well, the immigration has lead to disgruntled people, who blame Merkel.

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

So who won?

Well, depends on how you define "winning". CDU/CSU is still the biggest party, but with massive losses. SPD has big losses too. AfD and FDP who both were under 5% (and therefore not included into parliament) have massive wins.

This is what happens when people talk about European politics without knowing it well lol

I am not European, nor do I claim to be an expert in all the intricacies of European politics, but I am always surprised by the amount of Canadians or Americans inthis site that are so invested in the European far right.

What makes this more funny is how hard or political and media mainstream searches for russian influence in our far right. Maybe they look in the wrong direction.

hm .. imo Merkel is a true conservative and as such she does stand for  "things are going well, so let's change nothing"



So they gave a neo-Nazi party a platform e.e good job, Germany

yea the AFD (which is comprised of a few outright neo-Nazis and quite a number of people that are fine with being in the same party as neo-Nazis) did much better than I hoped

afaik you guys have a similar party and I hope it does much worse in 2018/2020



I think maybe I am wrong, mainstream media and politics underestimated the resentment and anger from 2015

 


Germany experience with the issue pretty caused doors to be shut across other countries or to be severely limited.

 

Like here in Canada we took like 40,000 and we liked picked and chose who we wanted and then had them go through rigorous background checks and single males were pretty much banned.

Right. I am very happy that she doesn't need some sort of agenda to push like building a wall or such nonsense. She stands for professionalism and sobriety. Since she runs the country germany executes much better economically and regained a lot of international trust. Don't fucking up a country means picking the right decisions every day, which is by far not as easy as some may think. It's also worth mentioning that this is a time where she opposes to far rights throughout the entire world, not only within germany, and she's doing very fine.

Why is anyone surprised about the AFD support on here? Have you seen the amount of Trump supporters on this site? People love their right wing nut jobs.

It's not like Trump isn't equally popular in the real world.

As far as I see it's that Big D doesn't even have a majority in his own country and the rest of the world thinks of him as a joke. I'd say real world approval of Donald is safely below 10%. USA is probably the only country where his approval is above 10%.

Except no one will form a coaltion with the Linke. So it will be the big coalition of CDU and SPD as usual..

Doubt it...

So in your professional opinion, what kind of coalition will it be?

edit: Just heard that SPD doesn't want the coalition. So Jamaika it is.

At least we didn't make them president, so that's nice.
