Beneath A Benign Surface Of A Merkel Victory The Far Right Has Gained Influence In Germany

Merkel is headed for an easy victory in the German election and Alternative For Germany will not get a large share of the votes.  The easy victory for Merkel obscures what is happening in German politics according to this article.  The far right Alternative for Germany Party is complaining because many of their opposition parties have been coopting many of their ideas.  The entire German political spectrum has shifted to the right.  Political correctness is under attack, and even the left wing party has moved to the right on immigration and refugees.  Trumpism is alive and well in Germany even though Donald Trump is very unpopular in Germany.
