MOSCOW (Sputnik) — AfD gained 10.5 percent in the survey, leaving behind the Green Party and Die Linke (Left party) with 10 percent each.
Eurosceptic AfD was founded in 2013. The party adheres to a tough line on immigration, the euro currency and the bailouts by the eurozone for certain EU member states.
The survey was conducted in Germany on November 13-16, with 2,000 people interviewed. According to the pollster, the recent deadly terrorist attacks in Paris could have influenced the voters.
