Lots of misconceptions about the Danish election result circulating on Twitter, not least because of confusing party names and letters.

Here's a simple graph of the result, inc. changes from 2015, with party names translated for an international audience.
And - related to that - the Social Democrats did not *win*. They were the largest party, but their vote share declined. A leftist coalition will probably emerge because other leftist (and pro-immigration) parties did well.
Also what happened to the Danish People's Party is complex - some of its support went further right, and some went to more traditional parties, some of whom copied its policies.

There are no simple conclusions to draw here.
If you want analysis, follow the brilliant @OleRyborg & @jacobchr, both of whom know a *lot* more about this than I do.
