French fears as far-right Le Pen leads presidential polls

Far-right Marine Le Pen is ahead in the polls as campaigning heats up before the first round of the French Presidential election on April 23.

Despite fears of yet another populist victory and the future of the European Union under very real threat her poll lead is increasing by the day, she is currently polling at 26 percent.

    hopefully she wins in the 1st round.

    • J. C.

      And the second.

      If terrorism is the no. 1 issue at the time of the election, she might have a chance. If not, Macron is President.
      The problem with Macron is that he is married to a woman who is 24 years older than him. She is his former high-school teacher. He fell in love with her when he was 16 and she was 40. He is now 40 and she is 64. Will someone have the courage to say he is nuts? Or a homosexual who still pretends he’s not?

        If he is a normal Alfa Frenchman there is now a mistress or two as well so it is all quite comfy and relaxed.

    The French elite have much more to worry about that a populist victory. France is effectively in the beginning of a “civil” war that is not going to end until more blood has been spilled than was in the French Revolution.

      And the idiotic French msm is worried about Trump.

        A pack of wild muslims could gang-rape their daughter and a Frenchman will find a way to blame America and/or Israel, or both.

      Hmmm… 1st round is 23 April – that’s just over 2 months away.

      How can the Mohammedans be encouraged to rape and riot during that time, so as to assure Marine’s absolute victory (unsure if the trigger to forestall a second ballot on May 7 is 40+% or 50% – then again, the French system is incomprehensible to all…)

      Charlie Hebdo (Je suis Charlie!) – we need your help!

      • Minicapt

        … 50% + 1 eliminates the need for a subsequent face-off between the two top finishers of the first round.


    • WalterBannon

      the french are going to be wiped out by genocidal muslims

  • BillyHW

    Shouldn’t the headline read: “French Hopes as Le Pen Leads Presidential Polls”

    • Uncommunist

      They sure do like their lawless no-gone zones and riots in France

  • Uncommunist

    The other parties could join together to keep Le Pen out of power.

  • David Rhind

    I don’t trust the CIA It wouldn’t surprise me at all if they were involved in the Joe ‘little potato’Trudeau election

    • Exile1981

      There was a wikileaks release today that CIA worked against her in the 2012 elections.

    • mauser 98

      not CIA
      .Obama , Podesta ,DNC flunkies were..they said so

    If the lovely Marine Le Pen is able to return France to the French, she will be remembered as the 21st Century’s Joan of Arc.

  • WalterBannon

    french are by culture a very corrupt people

    watch for the voting shenanigans and her last minute loss

  • LairdKintyre

    Vive La France. This isn’t the first time the odds were against France in the face of an Islamists scourge..Charles Martel stood tall and won the day. So will Marine Le Pen. The Ballseyest French Dame since Joan D’Arc. Give them Hell, Marine.

  • Barrington Minge

    Now this would really shake up the “establishment”…Go Girl!!

  • LairdKintyre

    Ah yes, a poll. A poll, one of those has her at 26%, so in reality her approval rating is actually about 60%. Trump had this problem with polls too.
