In a new poll, the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party is now larger than ever, The Huffington Post Germany reports.
In the Emnid survey, carried out for tabloid Bild, the AfD comes out as second largest party together with the Social Democratic Party (SPD). This is unprecedented and has never happened before.
For the survey 1894 representative persons were asked: “For which party would you vote there were federal elections next Sunday?
With 17% of support, the right-wing AfD is now at its highest level ever. This clearly shows things are changing in Germany and quickly.
Merkel’s ruling CDU/CSU coalition is still at 30% of support, but nearly dissolved last week after a row about border checks with CSU Minister Horst Seehofer.
