They currently poll at (only) 30%, but it turns out the Saxony election rules have an interesting twist: There is a primary vote for a specific person and a secondary vote for a party. The primary vote winner of each district will always get into the parliament, even if the party's secondary votes determine a lower percentage of the seats (Überhangmandate). In most cases, the other parties get additional seats to correct the seat percentage according to the secondary votes (Ausgleichsmandate). In Saxony, they limited the second part to limit the size of the parliament. So there is a chance, the AfD gets more seats than secondary votes.
