No.

Because the Presidential Election is worth 2 sentences and can be posted in the other thread:

"Gauck got ____ votes, while _____ electoral voters (mostly from the Left and the Nazis opposed him."

"Gauck will be sworn in on _____"

The end.

Frankly, local by-elections are more interesting.

It would have been somewhat interesting if the CDU hadn't conceded defeat. Now it's not really worthy of being mentioned...

Yeah, the exciting stuff happened this weekend... sunday in particular.

On March 18, Gauck will be rubberstamped. The only remaining question is whether the Left decided to run a candidate of their own.

Considering they have no warm feelings for Gauck, they certainly will run a candidate.

They could also vote "no". But a Left candidate is probably more likely, yes.

A new poll from Forsa for the next federal election:

CDU/CSU: 38%
SPD: 25%
FDP: 2%
Greens: 15%
Linke: 8%
Pirates: 8%
Others: 4%

Anybody else sees a "grand" coalition on the horizon?

New poll from Saarland from Infratest dimap (compared to last election)

CDU: 35% (+0,5%)
SPD: 36% (+11,5%)
FDP: 2%  (-7,2%)
Greens: 4%  (-1,9%)
Linke: 15% (-6,3%)
Pirates: 5% (Huh)
Others: 3%

It'll be interesting if the SPD will work with the Left.

The Left will run Beate Klarsfeld.

Either her or political scientist Christoph Butterwegge or 2010 candidate Luc Jochimsen again.

As it stands now, CDU, SPD, FDP and Greens were able to agree on a presidential candidate much faster than the Left Party does for their own candidate. Tongue

I am stunned.

An attack piece on the Left, in a German mainstream media, that actually pinpoints where the problem lies and understands its subject. Get that man out of journalism, he's wasted in that hellbound profession.

http://www.spiegel.de/politik/deutschland/0,1518,817338,00.html

Required reading if you understand a little German.

Well, at least the CDU can now claim that it was right to exclude the Left from the presidential nomination process because the party doesn't even agree with itself let alone any other party.

The majority of Pirate voters probably don't even know much about the party they're voting for. It's a protest vote, more than anything else.

That plays only a very minor part in the party's public perception. If anything, their pro-civil liberties/anti-government surveillance stance is their most well-known political position.

Mostly they are seen as a fresher and better version of the Greens though. A non-extremist alternative to the "establishment" parties.

Ah, well, and the Left has finally settled on Beate Klarsfeld as their presidential candidate... after the two other folks have dropped out.

18th March. He'll be sworn in right after the vote.

FR has some sort of poll. By Omniquest, and done American style, without excluding undecideds. Also didn't poll the minor candidates.

Rhein 32.1
Feldmann 19.4
Heilig 12.4
Förster 4.3
Wißler 2.8
other / NOTA 8.7 (apparently. Deduced from the other figures adding to 91.3)
undecided 20.3

And a second poll by the same pollster, with one week to go:

Rhein 30.0
Feldmann 22.3
Heilig 10.9
Förster 3.6
Wißler 2.4
Fechter (getting a breakout now) 2.0
other / NOTA / refused to state (at least they now clearly state it's summed from these three) 10.5
undecided 18.3

Definitely headed to a runoff on the 25th.

I shall be voting for Jean-Jules. Somebody's got to do it. Grin Besides, it doesn't matter one jot who I vote for as long as I do vote and it's not for Rhein.

Besides, I approve of his dining habits.

Tatchouop lives on a diet of hot water, honey, lemons, apple cider vinegar and almonds. I kid you not.

Certainly so.

If we could have the second round map on the day after the first round is held, that would be particularly nice. -_-
