Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I have two guesses:

  1. East German voters. In East Germany (just like in the rest of the formerly communist Eastern EU), voting habits aren't as solidified, the reason someone votes for one party might depend on changing issues.

  2. Socially conservative, lower middle class people who were fired or fear they will be, and who feel betrayed by the CDU giving up on the welfare state of Ludwig Erhart.

*Lunatic*, n.
One whose delusions are out of fashion.
