follow one of the political myths in this country that SPD, greens and the Left in 2013 had a majority to form a government. The approved, mathematically, politically it was wrong: Just because the candidate for Chancellor Peer Steinbrück at the time rejected the formation of a government with the Left, the SPD's 25.7 percent. He would have declared a red-Red-Green imaginable, the result would have been in the SPD rather worse - for example, as of 2017, Martin Schulz, who had Red-and-excluded Red-Green never.

That a majority of left-of-centre not filed since 2005 for the majority of the left, was also Reserved in the social Democrats, Oskar Lafontaine and Sahra servant dare not - but only. Meanwhile, there is even mathematically not a majority, both in Parliament and in the polls. This is also the retreat Sahra is servant Dare to change so soon, there was nothing.

The Left had to recognise that they can also benefit from high losses of others. The Protest feels today at the AfD in better hands. And the SPD does not shrink because they get rid of it, to be itself as a government party, the main Opposition. Not the way to a left-wing majority, according to Wagenknecht. Have lost the SPD and the Left is only an excuse for the lack of attraction of the whole left-wing camp.
