Abstract

The formation of a new anti-euro party, Alternative für Deutschland (AfD), has generated significant media attention ahead of Germany’s Federal Elections in September. Kai Arzheimer assesses the party’s electoral prospects, arguing that despite the media coverage, the AfD will find it difficult to gain substantial support in the four months leading up to the election. Current opinion polls suggest only three per cent of the electorate will support the party, falling short of the five per cent needed to gain seats in the Bundestag.
