Macron and Le Pen go to the next round

Prior to France's town halls and schools, the walls, on which, as of today, the candidates for the European elections, the bet smile. Then the last Phase of the election campaign , the felt held since November of last year.

Emmanuel Macron or Marine Le Pen ? Neither the President nor the Head of the right-wing Opposition candidate for a seat in the European Parliament, but the question before the French, these two persons come to a head. Do you want to strengthen your President? Or you give the Rassemblement National your voice, and gain Marine Le Pen two years after their Failure in the presidential election late satisfaction?

"On va gagner!"

you drive today to the election campaign events of Macrons La République en Marche (LREM) chanting the people there the same as at the Meetings of the radical Right: "On va gagner!" We are going to win. LREM-party chief Stanislas Guerini repeatedly reminded that in the European elections only once and not as in the French presidential race in two rounds, but the dynamics is very reminiscent of the may 2017.

As if France were again in front of a The-winner-takes-it-all decision, it is decided in principle on the direction of the Nation. On the one hand, Le Pen and her followers to demonize the European Union, as well as Migration and Islam. On the other hand, Macron, the sermon of Confidence and Europe waving flags.

Le Pen, the most prominent opposition politician in France, Macron is today a President who has suffered due to the protest movement of the yellow West its first severe setback. To make Profit from the weakness, explains Le Pen, the Europe of choice to a question of domestic policy, a "Referendum". Macrons party should win the European elections, he should resign, claimed Le Pen.

The Right-wing is aware of what it would mean if she gets the most votes. In the center is not her Triumph, but Macrons defeat would be. The least, choose Le Pen, to give, to do so out of Conviction. Even if Le Pen has arrived in the political Establishment, many voters, a cross at the extreme Right was an act of protest and not support xenophober positions.

friends left and right

Macron and his European list of 'Renaissance' to respond to the competition from the right by campaigning in Black-and-White. One of the most popular metaphors that have used both party chief Guerini, as well as the list number one, Nathalie Loiseau, in the past weeks, again and again conjures up the fear of a world war up. The French and the Europeans have to decide, "what are the' 30s, you want the of the last century, or the 2030er years," the Team at Macron.

The warning before the nationalism goes, interestingly, with the Praise of national Size. At a campaign evening, the state Secretary for European Affairs, Amélie de Montchalin, recently made a glowing speech in Paris as the "first city of Europe" in the "all the Best" from cultural and economic to collect.

Beyond these pithy words managed Macron to win supporters from the various Camps. Since its flagship friend, Daniel Cohn-Bendit , is convinced that with Macron a social Europe can be made would be on the Left. On the Right of the former Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin, the advertises for Macrons list, although he is a member of the conservative Republicans. On the list of two LREM Pascal has housed Canfin. The Green politician, has earlier headed the French branch of the WWF, and vouches for the environmental commitment Macrons.

right in the poll on the front

if you Look at the forecasts of the pollsters, then it looks as if France have extremely only two Alternatives: Macron or right. Although 34 lists for Europe are admitted to the election, but the LREM-list "Renaissance" and the Rassemblement National are the only forces that come into the polls to more than 20 percent. The left France Insoumise and the conservative Republicans will follow with a great distance at a good 10 percent.

In a survey conducted by Le pen's list on Friday for the first time in front of Macrons Team, the Right came to 22.5 percent of the vote, LREM to 22 percent. You can call this a head-to-head race. It can also be said simply that there will be in this election in France is no clear winner.

it is Unclear whether Le Pen of the aftermath of the yellow West-benefits protests. The movement of the "gilets jaunes" has given the General dissatisfaction of many French people a voice, but she has accepted either a clear left or clear right profile. Many of those who call themselves "gilets jaunes", distrust politicians and do not vote.

Le Pen in the European elections, more than 20 percent, it would be a success, but no news. In 2014, it brought the radical right-wing party, at the time, as the National Front, on 24 percent of the vote, the party of the then-ruling socialists of Francois Hollande (14 per cent) and the Conservatives (21 percent). France spoke of a shock. Five years later, the shock seems to have the Routine changed. No survey Le Pen looks to be under 20 percent.
