Because it's a completely nonsensical detour that does not pertain to the subject of the thread.

Clearly not since Weber is going to win.

Not ideologically of course, that was not the point.

Can you guess what makes them similar ?

Anyway, to solve it:

Both Beto O'Rourke and Manfred Weber are political newcomers and both are former rock musicians:

First Trump wants Europe to take care of its own defence. And then when Macron suggests that the EU do just that, Trump gets offended and pretends like it's aimed against the US.

Austria-related EU poll results from the recent GFE survey:

"In your opinion, should Austria remain EU-member or exit the EU ?"

74% Remain
13% Auxit
12% Undecided

"From July-December, Austria has the rotating EU Presidency of member states. Do you approve or disapprove of the VP-FP government work for the EU Presidency so far ?"

49% Approve
33% Disapprove
17% Undecided

"Has your interest in EU-related politics increased since Austria took over the EU Presidency in July, or is that not the case ?"

23% has increased
72% that is not the case

"In May 2019, the next EU elections will take place. Are you personally taking part in those elections ?"

42% Yes, definitely
34% Probably yes
14% Probably not
  3% Definitely not
  7% Undecided

(Final turnout in EU elections almost always mirrors the "definitely" percentage. Still, the 42% percentage is relatively good at this point and could end up near 50% once the election campaign starts.)

No surprise here: Marisa Matias will be the main candidate for the Left Bloc (BE) in the EP elections.


In 2014, Marisa Matias also led the BE's list and got only 4.6% of the votes.

Here's the recent Asselborn-Vilimsky spat:

Austria's Vilimsky brands Asselborn 'fanatic leftist'

Quote
Austria's right-wing FP secretary general Harald Vilimsky has branded Luxembourg Foreign Affairs Minister Jean Asselborn a "fanatical leftist" after the Luxembourger accused the Austrian government of acting as "henchmen of Viktor Orbn".

In an interview with Austrian magazine Profil Asselborn criticised the Austrian government of turning its back on the United Nations after it decided to reject the UN migration pact.

Speaking of the Austrian FP-VP coalition, Asselborn said it "does everything an 'honest broker' would not do".

He said chancellor Sebastian Kurz and vice-chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache acted as "henchmen" of Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orbn for rejecting the UN migration pact.

"During its EU presidency, Austria systematically excluded everything related to European solidarity and responsibility," Asselborn added.

"That will also be the legacy of this presidency. As a 'bridge builder' the Austrian government will not be taken seriously in Europe."

On Saturday Vilimsky hit back at Asselborn, branding him a "fanatic leftist who has been on the wrong track in European politics for years".

"When a person like Luxembourg's Foreign Minister Asselborn criticises Austria's non-accession to the UN migration pact, you can be sure that you are in the right place," he said in a statement.

Vilimsky argued the UN migration pact would "interfere with the sovereignty of nation states on the question of immigration".

The pact known as the Global Compact for Migration is a global agreement on a common approach to international migration. It is not legally binding and sets out measures to reduce the risks and vulnerabilities migrants face and seeks to help countries manage the international flow of migrants while protecting human rights.

The text was finalised in July and it is due to be formally adopted by world leaders in December.

So Timmermans will run as the leading PvdA candidate after all, as this is apparently required. Fun.

Meanwhile, FVD leading candidate for the EP Derk Jan Eppink has harshly criticized ENF and says they are orienting themselves to join potential groups with the intention not to just block things, but to prevent Eurofederalism through compromise. Needless to say it's fair to assume that it's not going to be ENF, but probably ECR.

He shall rejoin his old Comrades. He used to be there as a Belgian MEP. Other possibility is that five-star-men's anti-establishment group.

against Aubry, Sarkozy will win. Aubry is a very bad candidate for prime time : no charisma, no sympathy, muslim connection, stupid ideas,... and sarkozy is a good candidate...

but against hollande, sarkozy will lose."

Censured by REALPOLITIK due to "offensive content".
