The Bild Zeitung (That means picture newspaper in Germany) had an online poll concerning the September election.  There was a surprise:  The Alternative for Germany polled at 15%!  Here’s the story (Thanks to Townhall) and a highlight:

Online polls can be manipulated but Bernd counters with “To vote several times you need to clear the cache and clear the cookies each time. I guess 99% of Bild online readers do not know how to do that.

Still, the results are not scientific and a few very dedicated people could easily have hijacked the results. However, “could” and “did” are not the same thing.


Wahl-O-Meter shows support for AfD at 7.9% with FPD dropping to 4.5%. With the threshold for parliament participation at 5% it is FPD, not AfD that is on the bubble.

I agree, online polls are not scientific and can be manipulated.  But I agree with Mich Shedlock:  the AfD is real and a real threat to Chancellor Merkel.  If it were left up to me, the AfD would score over 50% and become the government.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
