The following information might be of interest for readers as it concerns a wide-spread mistake which can lead to a certain confusion (or at least lack of precise data):

In German language (and I am sure statistical data concerning an election in Germany rely on German sources) the word "worker" means "Arbeiter". This is however not identical with the Marxist category of the working class.

"Arbeiter" usually means blue-collar or manual worker. Other sectors of the working class are a large part of the "Angestellte" (which basically means white-collar worker in the private sector) and "Beamte" or "Öffentlich Bedienstete" (which means workers in the public sector).

It is a wide-spread phenomena that some sectors of the blue-collar worker who suffer strongly from de-industrialization and who have been "forgotten" by the reformist parties (which themselves become more and more dominated by middle class people) follow the reactionary racists on an electoral level.

Interesting breakdown by social class:

In confronting the rise of authoritarian far-right populism, Marxists should really 
re-think the old Trotskyist shibboleths about fascism being a primarily petit-bourgeois 
or "Bonapartist" phenomenon.  It's pretty clear that the new far-right has a 
substantial proletarian base.
