    Hitler’s basic theme was ‘Europe stinks, Make Germany Great Again!’

    Due to the severe economic crisis in 1929 which made millions of Germans unemployed and the inability of other democratic parties to deal with this crisis. Cutting down private and state sector and fire employees was a very destructive idea. Previously the Nazi party held only an average vote of 3,1 % on all previous nationwide elections. Also, Hitler was the only German politician who predicted already in 1928 that this crisis would come at a time (and that the dependecy on American credit was the main culprit) when the economy was at its height.

    The only election Hitler 'won' was held after Hitler was appointed Chancellor and the Nazis gained power. In the 1933 Federal election Hitler's thugs, the brown shirts, bullied and threatened people to vote for him, it wasn't a fair election.

    comment: The Nazis did not gain the majority in either of those elections and therefore did not gain control of the government, in fact, in the November 1932 Federal election the Nazis lost 34 seats in government. And the brown shirts intimidated people to vote for the Nazis in those elections also.

    They didn't "vote" for the Nazis. They supported the Nazi party because in the early days after Germany began reasserting itself as a sovereign state, the Nazi party offered employment job opportunities where there were none otherwise. German men had to find work to support their families and the Nazi party was the most lucrative option that gave them what they needed.

    It should be noted that joining the Nazi party didn't mean that they signed up to exterminate Jews - this ideology has always been false propaganda promoted by Holocaust peddlers.

    Hitler and the Nazis won the election with almost 44% of the popular vote. More than 56 % didn't vote for Hitler and the Nazis.

    Germany had been humiliated by the victorious allies after World War I and had been plagued by economic problems such as hyperinflation.

    Adolf Hitler promised to make Germany great again.

    The Great Depression and high debt levels from WWI combined with high inflation. Germans no longer trusted the Weimar Republic.
