With just a week to go before the first round of the French presidential election, the gap between presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron and right-wing candidate Marine Le Pen is closing.
According to a new poll by French channel BFM TV, voting intentions are 28.5% for the outgoing president and 22% for the national rally candidate.
Candidates Jean-Luc Melenchon and Eric Zemmour followed voting intentions with 15% and 9.5%, respectively.
Marine Le Pen’s recent speeches on the rising cost of living allowed her to gain points.
“The really obvious trend is the only grand tour against Marine Le Pen from Emmanuel Macron. A few months or a few weeks ago, there was a real fight between Valerie Pekresse, Marine Le Pen and Eric Zemmur, but for two or three weeks the trend was really very clear,” he said. Analyst Brian Brigute explained.
Emmanuel Macron also held his first major campaign rally on Saturday, where he addressed more than 30,000 people.
Most of the French people currently living in Quebec want to vote, but many of them are worried about growing up right in their homeland.
The first round of voting will take place next Saturday for the French abroad, the day before which will be held in metropolitan France.
In an interview with LCN, economist, former minister and expert on French politics, Daniel Pyle concluded that Eric Zemmer had somehow contributed to Marine Le Pen’s current popularity, the latter being “acceptable” and “not too aggressive”.
In support of his view, Mr. Pyle, Mr. Zemmour, during a visit to Marseille, indicated that he was “going to clean up the city’s curfew at the immigration level.”
On Emmanuel Macron, mr. Pyle argued that managing the Russian-Western crisis had enabled him to achieve a certain level, but stressed that the French now want to demonstrate what their president wants to do in the next five years. If he is re-elected.
“You may have a great track record, but you are rarely re-elected on the track record. “Why another five years?” You must be re-elected. “, He said.
