State elections in Bavaria: dubious Twitter polls – “nonsense well done” – Bayern


The first politician to fall for the ominous Twitter account was Mike Mohring. In 2014, the then leader of the CDU in Thuringia cited in his congress speech a survey according to which the SPD had lost favor with the voters by 12.4 to 8 percent. After the state elections the Social Democrats had allied themselves with the Left and the Greens – a big mistake by Mohring, which the SPD now had to atone for with apparently miserable electoral numbers. The problem: the figures cited by the CDU member are without foundation. In all serious polls after the election, the SPD ranked between 11 and 14%. “CDU politicians fell for the wrong numbers,” he reported Mirror online at that time.
