Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
why is it that in the whole of east the three that went SPD had the least right wing vote? all below 3.2% while (with one exception in Wahlkreis 65 Elbe-Elster, where they got 5%)

with almost no exception, those that went CDU had a right wing vote of between 3.5 and 7%

Don't understand. What do you mean by 'right wing vote' - are you referring to the extreme right? I don't think there is any place in Germany where the CDU got single digits.

Yes, I do mean the far right wing, NPD.

It is just a strange observance, the mostly social democrat areas have less far right wing votes than the the CDU area's

It is not quite as significant in Thuringia, but it is the same in Saxonia, and  M-V
