The people who counted the votes are claiming that the Austrian election is in a dead heat. Norbert Hofer of the Freedom Party and Alexander Van der Bellen are each on 50%, according to the estimate, which includes postal votes not yet counted. The pools really put Hofer ahead, so there may be some voting counting issues — Stalin fashion. Nevertheless, what this is demonstrating is that 50% of the people are fed up with the EU. Instead of addressing the crisis, those in Brussels refuse to ever change course.
