Evidence continues to emerge of the so-called Radical Right Gender Gap, the marked reluctance of women, compared to men, to vote for “far-right” parties. In Germany, if only women voted, the country would be run by the open-borders Greens, while the anti-immigration AfD would be blown away.
If you think Merkel is bad, you should see the German Green leader Claudia Roth. On immigration, she makes Merkel look like Eva Braun.
BERLIN. If only women could vote in Germany, the Greens would be the largest party. According to a survey done by the polling institute Emnid for the Bild am Sonntag newspaper, 28% of women, but only 16% of men, would vote for the party.
The second-largest party among women would be the Union [mainstream “conservative”, Merkel’s party] on 27% (men: 23%). The AfD is unpopular among women. Among female voters it would get only 7%, but 22% of men would vote for it.
… Among women a Green-Red-Red* Coalition under the leadership of a Green federal chancellor would thus have a clear majority.
*In German political parlance, this means a coalition between the Greens, the Socialists and Die Linke (The Left, literal ex-communists).
It’s worth noting that Italy seems to be an exception to the Radical Right Gender Gap. There, Salvini is more popular among women than men.
