German state elections: Success for right-wing AfD, losses for Merkel's CDU

It's not just the US that's ready for a change.  On no, Bernie, it's not the socialist rvolution you're selling.

Exit polls suggest significant success for the populist right-wing AfD in three key state elections. Chancellor Merkel's CDU saw losses in two out of three states, which have been attributed to her refugee policies.

 AfD supporters celebrate gains in Rhineland-Palatinate

The right-leaning AfD managed to enter all three state parliaments, winning double-digit percentage results in Baden-W├╝rttemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saxony-Anhalt.

More than 12 million Germans were eligible to vote in the polls to elect new regional parliaments in the three states.

They came out of nowhere, just like Trump.

"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win."
