Maybe. Although Bolsonaro has been a deputy for a while, he hasn’t gotten support from many of his fellows while he was running. Some of the few who advocated for him campaign were senator Magno Malta from Espírito Santo (who failed to get re-elected) and Onyx Lorenzoni, one of the less influential federal deputies from our own Democats (a liberal-conservative right wing party). His frequent struggles with his former parties (like, say, the Social Christian Party) meant that Bolsonaro often had to join other groups who often provided with less personnel but offered a more homogenous group to work with. In a country with so many political parties, finding people in the Legislative who’d vote for his excesses without compromising will probably be difficult.
Yeah, I did read a similar analysis on The Guardian a couple of days ago. It seems like the GOP is going to be defined more and more as “the Trump party” and embrace his policies more and more for 2020.
That is true. While some people might have noticed the AfD gains the Bavaria and Hesse, the largest number of votes seem to be migrating from the CSU to the Greens, while the Social Democrats and other parties seem to hold the same-ish number of votes.
But the Green Party of Germany is an Europeanist group, right? We might see a coalition between them and similar parties in case the AfD gains a lot of seats in the next election.
