The AfD Has Just Won The Biggest Vote Share For A German Far-Right Party Since The Nazis
The party came third in Sunday's election, winning 13.5% of the vote, according to exit polls.
Alternative for Germany (AfD) — a German political party with far right–leaning views — is predicted to have gained 13.5% in Sunday's federal election.
It's the largest percentage gained by a far-right party in Germany since the Nazis' 43.91% in 1933. Weeks after that vote, Nazi Party leader Adolf Hitler enacted laws that gave him plenary power.
