Makes it even harder to understand why in yesterday’s elections in Bavaria, although the Alternative for Germany party (AfD) is set to enter the Bavarian Regional Assembly for the first time, it only garnered 11% of the vote. Obviously, Germans have not yet suffered enough from the Muslim migration plague infecting Western Europe.
Express Angela Merkel’s sister party, the Christian Social Union (CSU) won 37.3% of the vote and has lost its absolute majority for only the second time since 1962. Political scientist at the University of Passau, Michael Weigl, has said that personal attacks on Angela Merkel by leader of the CSU Horst Seehofer are to blame for CSU’s weak result. Three in four voters who have abandoned the CSU in Bavaria have said they think the party has focused too much on immigration and has neglected other issues.
