This post is my third response to purplesagefem, concerning this post of hers. It’s very late – my apologies for that. A lot of real life stuff happened and required my time and energy, and also I was lazy/more inclined to do things that were more fun.
Follow-up on my last post: we did not elect the Nazi! We elected the other guy, with 53.8% of votes in total and a voter turnout of 74.2% (which is pretty high). Turns out that a lot of people took a good, hard look at Hofer and his campaign and decided that even if they didn’t particularly like his opponent, the difference was big enough to vote against Hofer anyway.
