Following the first two state elections in Germany’s super election year, the victories of incumbent local executives would seem to point to the continued relative stability of German politics. And yet, the results of the state elections in Rhineland-Palatinate and Baden-Württemberg suggest that the upcoming races in four states and especially for the federal parliament are each a wide-open field.
