Far-right defeat in Austria? December 4, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
If confirmed, the margin of Van der Bellen’s forecast win over Hofer in Austria is a major surprise.
Polls in the run-up to the vote had the two candidates neck-and-neck, with several putting the far-right Freedom party’s Hofer ahead. But the first official results, released minutes ago, show the independent with 53.5% of the vote, with Hofer 46.4%.
