I am not that worried about that 10% of trash and clowns. What I do find important is that fringe right-wing within the CDU-CSU cannot use the threat of a growing AFD as argument to pull the CDU-CSU more to the right. BTW What happens in Belgium regarding fringe right wing is likely much more concerning. A complicated and mixed bag what is happening there... could well be the end of PM Charles Michel as well. Macron will in that case miss his ALDE-liberal companion.
