Alternative for Germany hits 5% in INSA/YouGov Poll

If the poll is correct (and most pollsters actually presume they’re underestimating the euroskeptic party’s support due to a German equivalent of the Shy Tory factor – see UK Polling Report for what I mean), then AfD (its German initials) would pass the threshold needed to enter the Bundestag…and put a serious crack in the German “consensus” about Europe in general and the single currency in particular (The Corner).

It would also mean the chasm between a euro-enthusiast German political class and a far more euroskeptical German electorate might begin to shrink (Open Europe).
