Brandenburg and Thuringia: Survey bombshell! No one can govern in the East without Wagenknecht or AfD

New Sunday trends from the research institute Insa on behalf of “Bild” suggest that in Thuringia and Brandenburg, no government could be formed without the involvement of the AfD or the Alliance Sahra Wagenknecht (BSW).

According to the survey in Thuringia, in which 1000 people were interviewed, 17 percent would vote for BSW if there were a state election on Sunday. That would be the most votes after the AfD (31 percent) and the CDU (20 percent). The Left Party of Prime Minister Bodo Ramelow would receive 15 percent, SPD (6 percent) and Greens (5 percent) would just make it into the state parliament. The FDP would miss re-entry with three percent.

For possible government coalitions, this would be disastrous. A majority without AfD or BSW, totaling 48 percent, would be hardly possible – even an unlikely four-party alliance of CDU, SPD, Greens, and Left would only reach 46 percent.

Interesting: The polling institute Forsa sees BSW in Thuringia at only four percent, which is below the five percent threshold. Forsa had interviewed 1253 eligible voters between January 6 and 10.

Without BSW, AfD, or Left, no one can govern in Brandenburg either

The situation in Brandenburg is not much better. Also there, Insa on behalf of “Bild” surveyed 1000 people about who they would currently vote for. Here, BSW ranks fourth with 13 percent behind the AfD (28 percent), the CDU (18 percent), and the SPD (17 percent). In addition, Greens (8 percent) and Left (6 percent) would enter the state parliament. Free Voters (4 percent) and FDP (3 percent) would not be represented.

Here too, a government coalition seems almost impossible. AfD and BSW would unite 41 percent of the votes, plus six percent of the Left. Without at least one of these three parties, a minister-president can hardly govern. A Kenya coalition of CDU, SPD, and Greens, for example, would only reach 43 percent.
