While ostensibly the AfD appears to be as successful as ever, winning seats in the Saar last weekend, the party has declined gradually from the heights of 2016. Polling as high as 15% at one point, it has ranged between 7 and 10% since the turn of the year, with some analysts even predicting that it could fall below the 5% electoral threshold for Bundestag seats. Now, its leader, Frauke Petry, appears to be on the brink of resignation due to infighting, and the situation increasingly resembles that of the Pirates, who enjoyed similar local and opinion polling success five years ago, before fading into irrelevance:

After the hideous imbecilic cow Merkele the lovely Frauke Petry should be voted in on looks alone.

She also has a sharp brain .

It's a real shame. She achieved a real breakthrough with AfD.

The threat to resign may be a clever tactic to get the rebels to lay off. The 7% in the Forsa poll needs to be seen in context - AFD tends to do worse in the FORSA polls. But there is a history of German intelligence (BND) infiltrating Far Right parties to stir up division (an attempt to ban the NPD fell apart when this became clear at the Constitutional Court). This is also the case of MI5 in the UK. Personally I think the AFD are divided between a conservative and a Far Right element, the latter being the usual NPD voters. I think Petry is in the former camp.

AFD on 11% in latest poll. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opinion_polling_for_the_German_federal_election,_2017#2017

Always the same game in Germany. A righwing party rises and frightens everybody for a while. After some time the party collapses and everything goes back to normal.
Repeat....

We can only but hope that the next Somalian/Eritrean reception centre opens next door to you, when the estate agent laughs down the phone when you want to sell your house.

I only hope you live out your days like the policies you propose ,, up to your neck in it.

When you give up projecting your thoughts onto others, you'll live a happy life.

Any party that overturns merkels destructive mass immigration policies, has got to be seriously considered.

Their history no matter how bad, should not be used to justify a disastrous immigration policy, which merkel has inflicted on them, its about time the Germans get over their past guilt and start to stand up for their country once again.

The problem with that is they are now meshed in the political madness that is the EU.

Its an extreme unfortunate state of affairs which hopefully they will shakeoff before their society further goes down the toilet.
When that happens the EU party will be over, they are now the glue holding it together, tis only a matter of time now that political union is killed off.
