Could this end up with the CDU and CSU splitting?

Any idea how many votes the CSU would get outside Bavaria if that happens?

The CSU would certainly have a chance to draw away the Sarrazin-loving members of the CDU; but what I wonder about is where the economic liberal conservatives would go -- I'm not sure that tax-cut populism would be enough for them to be confortasble with the CSU.

Would be nice, but I haven't seen the Bavarians making that threat in the current brouhaha (though I may have missed it). Seehofer climbed back from making impossible conditions before.
