* Austria: Election Polls; 30 day average to 2017-8-16.

– Since May, after Sebastian Kurz (OVP) announced he was willing to lead the OVP and called for new elections, the polls appear to be very steady:

OVP is polling 33%, while the Freedom Party (FPO) and Social Democrats (SPO) are virtually tied for second at 24-25%.

– As many know from our past posts, we ardently oppose current Chancellor Christian Kern and his SPO Party. We are not sure what type of games Kern may play before the election, but he will embrace “EU Solidarity” on migration if elected. Kern, a member of the Party of European Socialists (PES), is a weak leader who will be dominated by both Berlin and Brussels. Austria has been flooded with migrants and there are strains of multicult tension appearing in their society. A few months ago on our pages, Interior Minister Wolfgang Sobotka (OVP) detailed the rising crime rates committed by the migrants.

– We maintain positive views of both the FPO and Sebastian Kurz. Both seem willing to challenge the multicult, open-border agenda of Angela Merkel and the EU, although in different degrees. Despite their differences (they are both trying to top the polls, so expect the competition to be intense), we believe they would be the best fit to form a new government. We simply see no other option and believe this coalition would work well with the leaders of the V4 on migration.

– There is no doubt a Kurz/FPO coalition right in Germany’s backyard would stun and stagger Angela Merkel and the EU. Expect the Berlin-Brussels cabal and their mercenaries in the media to slander the FPO and to pressure Kurz unmercifully in an effort to influence the election. Merkel simply cannot afford to lose Austria; it would be a devastating blow.

– A Kurz/FPO government could be a “game-changer” for Europe and would strengthen the positions of the V4, which advocates a secure border, the end of forced migrant quotas and the rejection of the multicult agenda of Brussels.

Keep an eye on Austria.
