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

There might be exit polls that show the real 'swing' at some point, are you referring to that? I don't know how many CDU voters would genuinely move to the Left Party, though of course some are possible. The Left party doesn't neglect its socially eehm... less liberal wing, least of all Lafontaine.

I put it in scare quotes -- it's only from comparing numbers in the last few pre-election poll and in present projections, and seeing all other parties unchanged. We'll see in exit polls where Left Party voters came from.

Hm-mmm. Note that most voters the CDU lost are likely to have been... SPD voters a decade ago.
