    Maybe they'll have the German version of our 2000 election!

    Look at the map here : http://www.n-tv.de/531158

    (Please be patient. It takes a while to load... but it's totally worth it).

    If you'll notice, SPD has almost completely disappeared from areas of former West Germany (BRD/FRG) while going up in former East Germany (DDR/GDR). CDU seems to have made some inraods East as well, but still retains it's stronghold south (Those funny Bavarians ).

    Friesland, Heidesheim and the Ruhr-Essen-Dortmund remain SPD strongholds.

    I found it interesting that the Greens managed to capture a district in Berlin (look for the odd green coloured tome in the enlarged map of Berlin). The Greens have taken over Stadtkreise Berlin-Friedrichsh.-Kreuzb.-Pr. B. Ost

    Always been strong there but this is the first time they've taken the district.
