5 And the Euro crisis? Downplayed as campaign theme (Established) parties election manifestos indicate differences on solidity solidarity dimension: Government parties (FDP > CDU/CSU): carry on as before (help to indebted countries, but only conditional on reforms; no debt union ) Opposition parties (SPD < Greens < Left): stronger emphasis on solidarity, calling for relaxation of austerity measures in indebted states Leaves blank spot: opposition to help for indebted Euro countries (and Euro itself)! Filled by

6 A new party entering the game Founded Feb as anti-euro party, neither left nor right (but advances made from the right) Leadership of bourgeois respectability: professors of economics, conservative journalists, businessmen/women, well-known former CDU members Core issue: dissolution of Euro zone, return to national currencies; but also: flat tax, stop to unordered immigration into German welfare system Well-financed campaign, due to significant donations

7 The voters view: perceptions of economy at federal elections 2013, 2009, Personal economic situation rather good rather bad General economic situation rather good rather bad Sources: RCS Election study 2005, GLES 2009 and 2013

11 Winners and losers at the 2013 election

12 Party voters decision making (% having preferred party eventually voted for already during campaign) CDU/CSU SPD FDP Greens Left AfD July August Sept 1-11 Sept Source: GLES 2013

14 Modeling vote choices: AfD Source: GLES 2013

15 Conclusion Economic situation very favorable CDU/CSU rewarded at the polls Euro crisis dethematized by most parties campaigns, but nonetheless salient and worrisome for numerous voters. Many voters more strongly opposed to Euro help than all established parties. AfD capitalized on Euro concerns and anti-euro sentiments, but its immigration-critical positions were crucial for success. Good prospects for AfD at European election! Will it turn into a populist party?

16 Thank you very much!
