Those German exit polls

CDU/CSU 33.5% (-1.7%)
SPD 23.3% (-10.9%)
FDP 14.6% (+4.8%)
Left 12.9% (+4.2%)
Greens 10.2% (+2.1%)
Others 5.5% (+1.5%)

Looks like the Christian Democrats and FDP will have a clear majority, although this is the worst result for the CDU/CSU since 1949 and the worst for the SPD since, er, 1933 (scroll down).

Fingers crossed for Cem Özdemir in Stuttgart South (I'm not really a Green voter but I know and like him); I imagine it's a bit of a long shot though.

NB the Pirate Party did best of the minnows, at 2.1%.
