Did Daily Mail support Hitler?

Did all German people agree with Nazi ideas?

Although there was almost no armed resistance to Hitler after he took power in 1933, it is difficult to determine the extent of the German Public support for Hitler. In the Reichstag elections of 31 July 1932, the Nazi Party got 37.8% of the votes. After Hitler took power and elections were held in March 1933, the Nazi Party intimidated (terrorized & killed) the other political parties but the Nazis only got 43.9% of the vote. Germans certainly agreed with Hitler on many of his goals, however there were many programs that the Germans would not have supported if they had known all the details. Different programs or goals had different levels of support, illustrated as follows: Anti-Communism measures: strong support Industrial & Economic growth programs: strong support Rebuilding Germany's military 1933-1938: strong support Killings of the mentally ill, very ill & elderly in German hospitals before the war: little support Annexation of Austria: strong support Hitler Youth programs: strong support Annexation of Czechoslovakia: moderate support Anti-Jewish measures: moderate support Death Camps for Jews: probably little support War with Poland: strong support War with France & Belgium: strong support War with Norway & Denmark: little support War with Netherlands: little support War with Britain: moderate support War with Serbian-Yugoslavia & Greece: moderate support Alliance with Italy: moderate support Alliance with Japan: little support 1939 Non-Aggression Pact with Stalin: little support War with Soviet Union (communism-Stalin): strong support Mass murder of the Polish & Slavic populations of Eastern Europe: little support War with the United States: little support Murder of POWs: little support Persecution of German Church leaders that opposed Hitler: almost no support Defending the German homeland from invasion & attacks: strong support
