If things don’t change fast, 2017 will be the year of the populist right and maybe even far right in Europe.
It is already beginning with the rise of the Alternative for Germany (AfD), which did well in a recent German state election, and the likelihood that Norbert Hofer of the Austrian populist right Freedom Party (FPO) will win the rerun of the Austrian presidential election on October 2.
A victory of Trump in America will also have enormous consequences for politics in the rest of the Western world too, and accelerate the turn to the populist right.
