The AfD is in decline. Pollsters see the popular support for the party at under 10%. The reasons are a mix of hostilities, internalised accusations, infighting and more. But as the Phantom of The Opera knows love never dies, it simply fades. While the party is totally consumed with itself they are barely visible from the outside. For one they are muted and ignored by the big media outlets and only granted attention when the big wigs can be sure that it’s negative. But even conservative (video) bloggers and journalists are not talking much about them. We are yawning. The drive has run its course.
