The Nazi Party wins 107 seats in the Reichstag, making them Germany's second largest political party with 20% of the Reichstag votes. Previously they only held 12 seats, making this the biggest gain of any part in these elections.

The Communist Party of Germany also makes impressive gains, going up 23 seats to a total of 77. The fact that the two radical parties both make large gains indicates that the political mood in Germany is growing dangerous.

Social Democrats remain the largest and most powerful party, though, with 143 seats.
