French people underestimating the support for Marine Le Pen, says Socialist party leader

FRENCH people are greatly underestimating the popularity of presidential hopeful Marine Le Pen, said the Socialist party’s Jean-Christophe Cambadélis.

The first secretary of the deeply divided left-wing party said Ms Le Pen had a rock-solid and growing support base.

Speaking to RTL radio, Mr Cambadélis said: “I think that people are underestimating Mrs Le Pen’s score and her popularity among right-wing voters… Right now, she’s busy widening her support base… Her campaign wasn’t great, but, despite that, she made it through to the election’s second round.”

  • Hoping she wins.

      Hoping? I’m praying to God. The same as I did before Trump was elected.

    She is France’s last chance before “le déluge”

      At least the last deluge was Robspierre and then Napoleon. They were French at least. I fear what will happen to France in a Islamic Deluge.

    I truly believe Ms LePens break with the Front National will put her over the top to the Presidency. I totally didn’t see that coming. She declared herself simply a Presidential Candidate now without affiliation except to France Herself. I think today is going to go down in History like Trump on the escalator.

    No, French people are not underestimating her support, but the establishment (globalists and socialists) and the Muslims are. It is the same everywhere in the West in that the political establishment is totally out of touch with the people. By the people I mean the majority and not the multitude of minorities, new ones created daily such as “trans” whatever, and the mass of imported aliens. On a smaller scale it is the same thing I find with the majority of urbanites who are so completely disconnected from their rural roots, nature and reality that they have no idea what was required to produce the neatly presented packaged meat at the supermarket and think predators are cute and huggable.
