WITTENBERG, GERMANY - MARCH 13: Supporters of the Alternative fuer Deutschland (Alternative for Germany, AfD) react to initial exit poll results in Saxony-Anhalt state elections that give the AfD a second-place finish on March 13, 2016 in Magdeburg, Germany. State elections taking place today in three German states: Rhineland-Palatinate, Saxony-Anhalt and Baden-Wuerttemberg, are a crucial test-case for German Chancellor and Chairwoman of the German Christian Democrats (CDU) Angela Merkel, who has come under increasing pressure over her liberal immigration policy towards migrants and refugees. The populist Alternative fuer Deutschland (Alternative for Germany, AfD), with campaign rhetoric aimed at Germans who are uneasy with so many newcomers, has solid polling numbers and will almost certainly win seats in all three state parliaments.
