Germany: Support for AfD Reaches Record High, Merkel Popularity Plummets

AfD Merkel Muss Weg

Support for the quasi-nationalist party Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) has reached a record high in recent days, according to the latest poll.

The poll, conducted by Infratest Dimap, confirmed that 17% of Germans intend to vote for the anti-immigration AfD party at the next election. This marks a dramatic improvement from their performance at last year’s Federal Election, at which they recorded 12.6% of the popular vote giving them 94 seats in the Bundestag.

Merkel’s popularity has sunk to record lows, with her centre-right CDU party polling at around 29%. Support for Merkel’s “Grand Coalition” partner, the SPD, remains relatively low on 18% – at last year’s election they lost a quarter of their seats, recording 20.5% of the vote.

The migrant-loving Chancellor’s personal popularity is also suffering as a result of her crimes against Europe, with just 21% of Germans asked in last month’s poll prepared to say they’re happy with their country’s leadership.

In the context of the figures we reported yesterday, which show that almost 1 in 4 “Germans” is of a migratory background, it’s no surprise that the regime’s popularity is suffering. Ordinary people are beginning to wake up and smell the coffee, as it were, and attempt to take back control against the invasion of their land and the displacement of their people.

Whether these figures will translate into meaningful change at the (likely) snap election remains to be seen, but this must certainly spell the end for the once-infallible (allegedly) Frau Merkel.
