The French have a built-in defence against Le Pen in the two round system (the first round you vote with your heart, the second your head). Even if she wins in the first vote it will be her against whoever else with ordinary French choosing the 'whoever else' option to keep her out of power.

Frankly there is more chance of Corbyn becoming Prime Minister.

>>82168
I wouldn't say she is racist and in fact she has done a good deal to purge those elements from the FN. The problem Le Pen has is she is French and therefore hardcore on republican idealism and French cultural chauvinism. Dumb as a rock too but that is political progeny for you.

Le Pen does have a chance, unfortunately. The betting exchanges have her at about 4/1. Macron needs to win the second round vote of a lot of people who don't really like him. Le Pen's base are absolutely fanatical and will vote come hell or high water. Macron could lose the second round purely on turnout if enough people aren't sufficiently repulsed by Le Pen. Yesterday's shooting was a big blow for Macron and another attack could be disastrous. Le Pen doesn't need the support of moderate voters, she just needs ambivalence.

I'm not so sure about that. I don't think his chances are that good.

>in fact she has done a good deal to purge those elements from the FN
No, she's done a good deal to make it look like she's purged those elements from the FN. She let the illusion slip recently with comments on the Vel' d'Hiv incident. FWIW, a rising star in the party is her niece Marion, who is every bit the firebrand that Jean-Marie was but much younger and better looking. There's already talk that if Marine doesn't succeed, and with the polls tightening it's a possibility that she doesn't make the second round, she'll be ousted and Marion is tipped to take her place. Rank-and-file members of the party seem to be of the opinion that Marine has gone soft.

It really is a complete wonder why the French public hasn't warmed to a Rothschild investment banker who stands for nothing except electability.

>The final hours of many electoral campaigns are frantic affairs, dominated by last-minute pitches, late-breaking polls and massive social media campaigns aimed at drumming up turnout. Not so in France.

>Rules dating back more than half a century impose a 44-hour time out ahead of the polls' closure Sunday, meaning that politicians, journalists — and even ordinary citizens — are supposed to refrain from broadcasting any form of "electoral propaganda."

>The national time out lasts from midnight Friday to 8 p.m. on Sunday in France and is intended to give voters time to reflect on their choice free from the distraction of surveys, radio commentary, and televised rallies. The rules apply online as well, meaning that candidates and their campaigns can't do so much as post updates to Facebook or Instagram. The rules even apply to French voters — meaning that someone posting a pro-Socialist or pro-Republican message online could fall afoul of the law, at least in theory.

I've always found election days weird. Days of campaigning and broadcasts and then on election day itself the news acts as though nothing's happening, except for a news article that people are going to the polls.

France24 is calling it for Macron and Le Pen. As Macron has come out ahead in the first round its all over.

I would have voted Fillon going by his platform and enjoyed a second round between him and Mélenchon. Although lets not argue over a foregone election in a foreign country.

Tactical voting in the first round is obviously asinine.

According to the Mail, the most interesting thing about the results is that Macron's wife is 25 years older than him and they met when she was his teacher.

According to the other place, the most interesting thing is his wife has 3 children the same age as him. The eldest of which is even a few months older. Vile people the French.

Do you think he tosses and turns at night unable to get comfortable on his mattress stuffed with Rothschild money. Not because of the deal he has to cut taxes for the upper class while gutting social services for everyone else but because when he looks over at his leather handbag of a wife, her breasts like two Tesco shopping bags quarter-filled with sand, he thinks back to all he has missed out on in life.
