Immigrants vote red

A recent poll among immigrants in Denmark with the right to vote had a quite startling result: 95%+ vote left-of-centre. The breakdown:

Unity List (communists): 7.2%
Socialist People´s Party (semi-communists): 19.0%
Social Democrats: 47.6%
Radicals: 21.4%

Left wing total: 95.2%

Liberals: 2.6%
Conservatives: 0.5%
Danish People´s Party: 1.2%

Right wing total: 4.3%

Given that a party needs 2% of the votes to come into parliament, the above means that the right wing would be represented by only 5 liberal MPs. The remaining 170 would be leftwingers (the 4 MPs from Greenland and the Faeroes not taken into account - they normally break evenly to the right or left, but have been known to be 3 leftos to one rightwinger).

welcome back to the blogosphere.

It's interesting to compare this article with the one just before it. Not only are immigrants voting overall to the left, they are also voting in full contrast to the Danes.

Now you know why leftist are begging for immigrants.

They really don't care about the people, they just want future votes.
