Vienna youth dump Far-Right


An interesting survey here in the Kurier yesterday (25-09-12) which suggests that support for the far-Right FPÖ amongst Vienna’s younger votes (16yrs-19yrs) has crashed.

The poll has bad news for both the FPÖ and the SPÖ (Social Democrats). The FPÖ support has dropped from 23% to 9%, while the SPÖ (who are the senior partners in the Vienna State government) have seen their support fall from 36% to 24%. The city governments’ junior partner the Greens are now the most popular party amongst young people with an increase in support from 24% to 26%.
