The European Parliament exit poll estimates show that the Christian Democratic Union of Germany (CDU) lost 6.70% of the vote compared to 2014, but remained the top vote-getter in Sunday’s election. In second place was the Green party, which nearly doubled its numbers after it saw its support jump by 10.2% from the last election in 2014.
The Social-Democratic Party lost 12.0% of its vote in this election. The Left party also saw its numbers drop 2.0%.
On the other side of the ledger was the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party which increased its numbers by 3.7% and came in fourth in the vote. The liberal Free Democratic Party won 5.4% of the vote, while the satirical pseudo political party known by the tongue-in-cheek moniker, The Party, surprisingly captured 2.3% of the vote.
The unaffiliated group known as the Free Voters won 2.2%.
The Human Environment Animal Protection, Ecological Democratic Party, Family Party of Germany, VOLT Europe, the Pirate Party Germany, and the neo-Nazi National Democratic Party of Germany all came in under 2%
