FRANCE: Trumpism

Marine Le Pen, the chauvinist candidate of the far right, is dominant on the right and  gaining ground among left-wing circles.

50% of the electorate think that Ms Le Pen is a ‘major’ political player.  62 per cent – think both Mr Hollande and Mr Sarkozy were  equally “bad” presidents.

74 per cent of those who consider themselves ‘conservative’  want the head of the country’s leading anti-immigrant party to play a more influential role in French politics, both now and in the future.  Only 53 per cent of right-wing supporters claimed to feel the same way about France’s former head of state Nicolas Sarkozy, and 67 per cent for Alain Juppé, who is currently favored to win the spring 2017 presidential election.

63 per cent – think that left-wing politicians could be wiped off the French political scene following next year’s elections.
