Isn't the Lippe and Herford a Protestant industrial area?

Yep. Lippe, Herford (and Minden) are the most Protestant areas of NRW, Catholic population is only around 10%. In Herford there are mainly Lutherans, while Lippe is traditionally Reformed Church ("Reformierte"). In this respect Lippe is comparable to Northern Hesse, with a strong SPD vote even in the most rural parts.
Industry is predominantly small and medium-sized enterprises, labour union influence still quite strong.

Hence, former SPD strongholds going back to their "normal" voting behaviour.

I had a look over changes in registered voters numbers... pretty fascinating.

Federally +0.4
...
Bavaria +1.5
...
Declines in Hof, Weiden, Bayreuth, Kulmbach, Bad Kissingen (but not Coburg) with Hof at -3.1% and the others below -2%.
...

I tried to find an explanation for the odd Coburg numbers (turnout below 70%, number of registered voters growing while population is declining).
The answer is very simple: Compared to the preliminary result the number of registered voters went down by 4,815 in the final result (No idea, how they made up the preliminary numbers). Hence we have Coburg at -1.0% with turnout about 71%.

CDU gains Minden-Lübbecke I Cheesy (SPD hold since 1949)

Unless a miracle happens in Ansbach or Munich West. Or a once-in-the-lifetime-of-the-universe magnitude miracle happens in Rosenheim. Cheesy

Worth pointing out that Munich North vote splitting continues, btw, it just wasn't enough:

CSU     57.196     36,5     -4,4     48.621     31,0     -5,2
SPD    55.645    35,5    -8,2    31.063    19,8    -10,1
FDP    15.757    10,1    5,2    28.193    18,0    5,9
GRÜNE    15.292    9,8    4,2    27.402    17,5    2,6
DIE LINKE    7.784    5,0    2,3    10.707    6,8    2,8

Left is direct, right is list.

Well, Munich West and Rosenheim are not happening...

The CSU is losing statewide though (first and second votes), except for direct votes in Kulmbach (+8% to 68%). Guess who's the local candidate Wink.

CSU gains München-Nord!

Clean sweep in Bavaria for the CSU, I think.

Edit: Tender beat me...

SPD hold Herford - Minden-Lübbecke II
Beat me to it. By 0.8. OWL's former stomping grounds.

As close as I expected. At least the SPD guy is from my home town Smiley.

Hello neighbor Smiley

I'm from the district HOF. The constituency Coburg-Kronach isn't so conservative you think. I don't think that the SPD have in this year a chance, but this is not CSU-land Wink

The candidate of the left Uwe Hiksch isn't a bad man. He is a man with ideals. I like him.


Hello Smiley

Yea, I know. On the local level it's a very different picture. But I don't think the SPD will regain their former rural Protestant strongholds in Franconia in state/federal elections.

Concerning Hiksch: the local conservative newspaper calls him a "Marxist"...

Oh, OWL's still lurking on here! Cheesy

Why'd you move to that corner of the world?

Job. I chose to work for one of Coburg's big insurance companies Wink.


Why the Piratenpartei this time? Are you sure CDU/FDP won't get a majority anyway?
10  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: 2009 State and Federal elections in Germany on: September 26, 2009, 01:54:41 pm
I'll cast my first vote for the CSU (District 238 Coburg-Kronach, CSU+19 in 2005) Same candidates = similar results this time, I guess. Last time the SPD won this district was back in 1998. The victorious SPD candidate is running again this year, but now for the Left Party Wink.

Second vote: Likely FDP (Tactical voting, I'm no big fan of the FDP)


My former district 134 Herford-Minden-Lübbecke II should be much more interesting. SPD+6.5 in 2005, but the long-time SPD incumbent is not seeking reelection. With the long-time CDU MP (list) resigning in 2007 we get fresh candidates for both major parties and I expect a close race this time.

Jas, to win reelection you should perhaps promise to recruite an opponent the next time you're running. Wink


To be precise, it's rather a zero-party election this time.

Some exit polls:
https://n38.noties.nl/peil.nl/ (Dutch)


And the results for the notorious municipality of Urk:
CDA, CU and SGP combined got 93.8% of the vote (down from 95.6% last time Wink)!

21  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: 2006 Dutch election on: November 22, 2006, 05:05:07 pm
prognosis after 11% counted (NOS):

CDA 41
PvdA 33
VVD 22
SP 25
Fortuyn 0
GL 7
D66 3
CU 7
SGP 2
PvdD 2
PVV 8


If this holds, even CDA +PvdA have no majority.  So which coalitions are possible?
CDA+PvdA+VVD or CDA+PvdA+CU or CDA+VVD+small (center-right) parties or a minority government? Any realistic chances to build a majority without the CDA (I hope not!)?
