Poll: AfD almost as popular as German Social Democrats

A poll published by INSA on Monday, shows the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD) party at 15 percent, a mere two percent behind the Social Democrats (SPD) on 17 percent.

Published: February 7, 2018, 2:38 pm

    The AfD has steadily been gaining in recent weeks since entering the Bundestag for the first time, with several polls suggesting a strong showing nearly on par with the Socialists.

    Created in 2013 to fight an election on an anti-Euro platform, the AfD could not break 5 percent barrier needed to make it into parliament at the time. But in the last election in September, the party won 12.6 percent of the vote campaigning on closed borders.

    The party has said Islam does not belonging in Germany.

    The poll also revealed that the Social Democrats and Christian Union, the so called  GroKo or Grand Coalition in Germany would no longer be able to form a majority government, if elections were to be held tomorrow.

    Merkel’s Christian Union (CDU/CSU) would win 30.5 percent of the vote, down from earlier figures.

    Both parties lost millions of votes in last year’s national election. The SPD received 20.5 percent, their worst result since the Second World War.

    The CDU/CSU struggled to stitch together a grand coalition government with the SPD, but has reached a deal with the the SPD on forming a new government, ending a deadlock that gripped Germany since inconclusive elections last September.

    Despite their poor showing in the poll, the Social Democrats will take the finance and foreign ministries, with SPD’s Olaf Scholz, the mayor of Hamburg, set to become Germany’s finance minister, giving the leftists a critical voice in shaping Berlin’s policy on Europe over the next four years.

    The ministry will be run by a party that has called for the creation of a “United States of Europe” by 2025.

    In addition to running German finances, the SPD was also granted the crucial Labour and Foreign ministries, and was also granted the family, justice and environment ministries.

    Horst Seehofer, leader of the CSU, will lead the interior ministry, while Merkel’s bloc will hold the economic and defense ministries according to Bild.

    Suddeutsche Zeitung reported that Schulz is said to step down as SPD head.

    Millions of migrants have have flooded into the country since 2015, demanding asylum in Germany while rejecting Western values.

    Highly critical of chancellor Angela Merkel’s open-door policy, the leadership of the AfD has rejected the label of a “far-right” party, describing themselves as conservative.

    Despite that, various statements by senior party members have been challenged by political opponents who say they show too much fondness for Germany’s past.

    Deputy AFD leader Georg Pazderski meanwhile has said that Germany should take the example of Israel, secure the borders and consistently guard them.

    The Israeli authorities distributed eviction orders to tens of thousands of African immigrants who are illegally present in the country on Sunday. The letter asks migrants to leave Israel by the end of March, or face imprisonment.

    Pazderski said: “Israel shows us: Illegal migrants are either summarily deported or imprisoned. There must be no other possibility for a state in this matter. Otherwise, it will fail if it does not fulfill his own competences.

    “All those who say that this is not possible in Germany should be told: Legally and practically it is very possible. Political will is still lacking in all parties except for the AfD. Since our foundation, we have demanded safe borders and controlled immigration. The costs are calculated and these, given the high double-digit billions currently wasted on uncontrolled immigration, are very manageable.”

    The excessive burden on social systems, around the clock care of minors, asylum procedures, asylum homes, security, the costs of border security and deportation are only a fraction of what it really costs he said.

    “Let us take an example from Israel, which has decades of experience with border security and immigration. We should finally secure and deport. ”

It seems the agency's disastrous workplace culture is related to its staunchly feminist leadership. There is not a single man in the "equal" management group.
