It’s been a tough week for Germany’s AfD, what with a Chinese spy in the midst and accusations of secret payments taken from the Russian government. But finally it looks like the party may have a bit of good news to celebrate.

A new study has suggested that young Germans are increasingly moving to support the AfD: 22% of 14 to 29-year-olds said they would vote for the Right-wing party if a parliamentary election were held today, up from 9% in 2022. This even means that the AfD overtakes the Left-wing Greens, which polled at 18% in the same age group. More centrist parties such as the Free Democrats and Social Democrats also saw a dip in support, going down to 8% and 12% respectively. Young people aren’t fond of centrist politics: who knew?
