As it was in America for Trump, it is now in France for Le Pen:
An editorialist at French daily, Le Figaro, has alluded to secret polling data which show the Front National’s Marine LePen [sic] scoring above 30% of intentions to vote in the first round of the French presidential election.
Surveys in the public domain consistently have populist LePen [sic] ahead of her rivals in the first round, at 26-28% of intentions to vote but losing to whichever rival she faces in the second.
In his recent article on the failing efforts of the media and political classes to thwart LePen’s [sic] continued rise, editorialist Ivan Rioufol cites ‘sous le manteau’, or hidden surveys in circulation which show LePen [sic] likely to score double her father, Jean-Marie LePen’s [sic] 2002 score of 16.86%.
The politically correct ‘Maginot line’ of France’s elites can no longer hold out against the popular anger of the French public, Rioufol writes, arguing that the threats by leftist intellectuals and celebrities to quit the country in the event of a LePen [sic] victory are actually boosting her campaign. Likewise for scare-mongering media warnings on a ‘return to the 1930s’.
The French media and political establishment are now openly contemplating a LePen [sic] victory, with frequent reference to the Front National ‘at the gates of power’, an eventuality until recently considered impossible.
