Why Austrians voted for Van der Bellen
The future of the European Union and Austria's image abroad were high on the minds of Austrian voters, who opted for Green candidate Alexander Van der Bellen as president, and against rightist Norbert Hofer.

Vienna (dpa) - Here are the results of a voter survey that was conducted in early December and published on Sunday by public broadcaster ORF. Among Van der Bellen voters, 67 per cent supported him because they felt he would best represent their country abroad. At 65 per cent, his pro-EU stance was the second most important motive to vote for him.
Austrian presidential candidate and former head of the Austrian Green Party, Alexander Van der Bellen (L) and his wife Doris Schmidauer (R) arrive to Hofburg palace after polls closed in the re-run of the Austrian presidential elections run-off in Vienna, Austria, 04 December 2016.

Hofer‘s eurosceptic stance resonated with only 43 per cent of his own backers. The strongest motive to opt for the populist Hofer was that "he understands people‘s worries," the survey showed, followed by his overall competence and his opposition to the political establishment.

Women voting for peaceful politics
Van der Bellen clearly won with the help of Austrian women. Two in three women below the age of 30 supported him, and he had 62 per cent of the female vote overall.

The majority of men - 56 per cent - preferred Hofer. The Green candidate‘s liberal, pro-immigration and pro-European views resonated with 78 per cent of voters who finished high school or university. In stark contrast, 85 per cent of labourers would have been happier with a right-wing president.
