So a bit fishy, it seems Martin Neukom to be. The 32-year-old green councillor candidate in accordance with the TA-choice poll so well in the race, as it would have hardly held anyone before the election. "The Chance is raised ... it is possible," says Neukom, on the most recent survey results. 38 percent of the voters to write his name on the ballot, only four percentage points less than that of the FDP candidate, Thomas bird, was seen as the clear favorite.
The survey results motivated him and his campaign Team. "We have to show the voters still better that many now talk of environmental protection, but block as soon as it becomes concrete." In General sense, due to the current climate debate internally a lot more commitment. "The Motivation in the case of the Green is extremely high, the people prefer to go on the road, there is a huge difference compared to 2015," says Neukom. The conditions were a surprise choice currently extremely good. "The issue is as virulent as ever," he says.
a criticism of bird
Still, Thomas bird, the favorite remains in the race for the seventh member of the cantonal government headquarters. Because Neukom is many voters still unknown and a total of less well-known than the bird, the TA-election survey shows. And this is according to political geographer Michael Hermann is also his greatest disadvantage. The Greens have ported a more visible candidate or profiling more candidates, would be a bird in trouble, in distress, is his assessment.
New self does not believe that he missed it in the election campaign, to make himself known. His media presence was high, he had engaged via social media. That Thomas bird better managed to make a name for himself, he agrees with the higher of the election campaign budget of the liberals: "the bird has extremely many posters, I can't afford it." The content of the FDP had not convinced man. "The bird is never hung and has said: "I stand for X or Y"", criticised Neukom to its competitors.

The Thomas bird did not sit: "Mr. Neukom was on so many stages with me, if he knows up to now what I stand for, then that's his Problem." This is typical pre-election rhetoric, don't get him out of the rest. Also, the recent polls, let him sleep well, says bird. "The distance has remained constant, and I am still confident."
bird would have to convince the increase mainly related to the SVP electorate. The TA-electoral survey has shown that the civil Alliance between the SVP, FDP and CVP works only partially. The bird only gets about half of the SVP-voters to the voice. The Same is true for SVP candidate Natalie Rickli, she is convinced, only around 50 per cent of the FDP electorate. "I hope the survey makes this Problem obvious, and pushes some of a thought process that leads to the fact that at the end of five civil names are on the ballot," says bird. How he wants to specifically, the SVP-voters to convince, and he doesn't want to tell. "But we have made the one or other Consideration."
Currently, a deep turnout, and because the more the election campaign up to the last Minute, had to be operated, said bird, who was just flyers on Tuesday morning on the bürkliplatz. The scarce results of the survey will mobilise on both sides of the voters. Neukom believes that a depth of the turnout for him could be more of a disadvantage, because there were many people who shared his concerns, but ultimately did not choose. This potential, Neukom, the government is now in the last election campaign days, as well as possible exploit.
