Here for example is the Gross Regional Product for Austrian NUTS regions:



So, wealthy regions in Austria vote for SP and VP alike, while poorer regions also vote for SP and VP alike.

The FP tends to do better in wealthy areas, as well as the Greens.

The BZ only really exists in Carinthia.

Of course that's not really a good way of measuring that kind of thing.

Which indicators would you use ?

...

Anyway, new Market poll for Salzburg published in today's Standard newspaper:

40% VP
39% SP
12% FP
  9% Greens
  0% BZ (Smiley)

Direct vote for Governor:

40% Gabriele Burgstaller (SP)
21% Wilfried Haslauer (VP)
  3% Karl Schnell (FP)
  3% Cyriak Schweighofer (Greens)
  0% Robert Stark (BZ)

http://derstandard.at/1331206998476/Umfrage-Burgstaller-als-Landeshauptfrau-unangefochten

The VP basically gains all the voters from the BZ, which got 4% in the 2009 state elections, while the numbers for the other parties are mostly unchanged.

New national poll by the historically accurate OGM institute for "Kurier":



The poll also asked: "Do you want SPVP continue to govern after the 2013 elections ?"

51% said "No", while 30% said "Yes".

Below that there are the preferred coalitions if SPVP are unable/unwilling to form a coalition again.

The Innsbruck election, which takes place in about a month, has become considerably more interesting in the last week because the VP changed their mayoral frontrunner from a mostly unknown guy to a more widely known and more popular guy. In the previous TT poll it looked like FI and its imcumbent Mayor Christine Oppitz-Plrer was pulling away from everyone else, but now the FI has taken a hit and is back in a tie again with the Greens and the VP and Oppitz-Plrer herself has only 39% support left in the mayoral election, making a run-off likely:

The FP is about to overtake the SP, according to the new Gallup poll for 24:

28% FP
28% SP
23% VP
14% Greens
  3% BZ
  4% Others

http://www.ots.at/presseaussendung/OTS_20120324_OTS0037/oesterreich-umfrage-fpoe-holt-spoe-ein-oevp-verliert

The Wolfgang Schssel-era corruption scandals that are now investigated in a parliamentary investigation committee are really hurting the VP, because most of the corrupt figures during the Schssel-era (2000-2006) are from the VP. There are also FP and BZ figures involved, but it seems that voters are not blaming the FP and BZ because they think that Strache and Bucher head the "new" FP and BZ, while the corrupt figures were mostly the ones who worked for Jrg Haider and former Chancellor Wolfgang Schssel.

Seen in Innsbruck, ahead of the municipial election next month:



"Love for the homeland, instead of Moroccan thieves"

There are now problems with the Moroccan embassy:

Austrian far-right party probed over racist poster slammed by Morocco as humiliating

Friday, 30 March 2012

Austrian prosecutors said Friday they are investigating the far-right Freedom Party for alleged incitement of racial hatred after complaints about campaign posters for local elections next month.

The FPOe partys posters for the election in the western city of Innsbruck carry the slogan Heimat-Liebe statt Marokkaner-Diebe, meaning Patriotism not thieving Moroccans.

The Moroccan embassy in Vienna issued an angry statement attacking what it called the FPOes defamatory and discriminatory behavior and accusing it of humiliating, stigmatizing and discriminating against the Moroccan community.

The embassy condemns in the strongest possible terms this hurtful practice aimed only at winning votes at the cost of respect for fundamental human rights, the Austria Press Agency (APA) quoted the statement as saying.

The FPOe, led by the charismatic Heinz-Christian Strache, is neck-and-neck in national opinion polls with Chancellor Werner Faymanns Social Democrats, with Faymanns federal coalition partners, the Peoples Party, in third place.

The FPOe is hoping to win seats in Innsbruck city council, where it is currently not represented, in local elections on April 15. The next national vote is not due until 2013.

In January Strache provoked outrage after he allegedly said that the persecution of members of the far-right attending a controversial Viennese ball made them the new Jews.

http://english.alarabiya.net/articles/2012/03/30/204274.html

...

While I don't agree with the FP-posters as they are implying all Moroccans are thieves and criminals, there is of course and there has been a serious problem with Moroccans in the city of Innsbruck. Almost all the drug trafficking and dealing at the Hauptbahnhof (rail station) Innsbruck is controlled by Moroccans, there have been shootings and stabbings and thefts among Moroccan (asylum seekers) and in 2009, four young Moroccan men raped a 17-year old Austrian girl in Innsbruck for a few hours and injured her critically. So, you see why the FP does this. The party thinks that the city government, police and social workers have failed to contain the "Moroccan problem". Nonetheless, the FP in Innsbruck is a joke party and even has a far-right rival list with the "LRF". Both of them combined will get about 20% of the vote next month. LRF maybe 11-12% and the FP about 8-9%. At least the FP got the attention they wanted with their "moroccan" posters and it's controversy.

Typical FP-strategy "We retreat, but not really ..." Tongue:

Far-right party defends anti-Moroccan slogan

VIENNA -- Senior officials from Austria's far-right party are defending election campaign posters that condemn so-called "Moroccan thieves" even after taking them down to avoid legal action.

The Freedom Party slogan for local elections in Innsbruck translates as "Love your home country instead of Moroccan thieves." The far-right party backs restrictions on immigration.

Innsbruck party officials said Sunday they were getting rid of the posters after Morocco threatened legal action and Austrian state prosecutors said they were considering criminal charges. August Penz, the party's local leader, said he "never intended to insult anyone."

But on Monday Gerald Hauser, the head of Tyrol's Freedom Party, said there was nothing wrong with the posters and urged Morocco to "take back its criminals."


The Freedom Party is Austria's second most popular.

New Innsbruck poll, conducted slightly ahead of "Morocco-gate":







http://regionaut.meinbezirk.at/innsbruck/politik/platzgummer-holt-stark-auf-rennen-voellig-offen-d157912.html

Interestingly, the VP has now overtaken the FI for the first time - because of their new and more popular frontrunner.

Also, the FP is ahead of the LRF in this poll, contrary to other polls.

And maybe the Pirates will take votes away from the Greens ?

And the Communists (KP) takes votes away from the SP ?

We'll have to wait for other polls to see what's happening there, because "Morocco-gate" is not yet reflected in these results.

Not really, we are just up early ... Wink

I always got up at 6:30 in the morning to catch the school bus.

But I have known others who had to get up at  5.30 or 6.00, because their school was 40 km away, and the bus stops every 2 or so km to pick up students ... Tongue

New Styria state elections poll by the good OGM institute:









http://www.kleinezeitung.at/nachrichten/politik/2990050/ja-zum-sparpaket-aber-minus-fuer-spoe-oevp.story

Pretty weird: Even though voters in Styria are happy with the SPVP government there and think that the state is on a good path and give the party leaders and their policies good grades, the SP and the VP are losing heavily compared with the 2010 state elections while the FP, Greens and the KP are gaining strongly. One good thing is that the BZ follows the path of the German FDP: into non-existance ... Smiley
