FIX IS IN: Green Party Commie Wins Austrian Election, Far-Right Loses Despite Lead

The left-wing communist Green Party candidate Alexander Van der Bellen has been declared the winner of Austria's presidential election.

While Van der Bellen was down by 144,006 votes, he supposedly managed to win over 60% of the 750,000+ postal votes counted overnight.

From BBC:
Alexander Van der Bellen has won Austria's presidential election, preventing Norbert Hofer from becoming the EU's first far-right head of state.

Mr Hofer led narrowly after Sunday's election but postal votes counted on Monday gave Mr Van der Bellen victory.
Mr Van der Bellen campaigned on a pro-EU platform, backed by the Green Party.

Mr Hofer, of the Freedom Party, tapped into anti-EU sentiment and fears about rising numbers of asylum seekers. He conceded victory on his Facebook page.

Mr Hofer said it was a sad day and that he would have gladly served as president.

"But please don't be disheartened. The effort in this election campaign is not wasted, but is an investment for the future."
Women and those brainwashed in university voted for the socialist while hard working men voted for the capitalist right-winger:
Support for Mr Hofer was exceptionally strong among manual workers - nearly 90%. The vote for Mr Van der Bellen was much stronger among people with a university degree or other higher education qualification.

Support for Mr Hofer among men was 60%, while among women it was 60% for Mr Van der Bellen.
This is a sick joke. Hopefully it only serves to further enrage people.

Here's Hofer's full statement from Facebook (translated with Google):
Dear Friends,
I thank you for your great support. Of course I'm sad today. I would like to watch out for you as President of our wonderful country. I will remain loyal to you and make my contribution for a positive future of Austria.
Please do not be discouraged. The use of this election campaign is not lost but an investment in the future.
Your Norbert Hofer
