Currently, voters are divided politically and the new debate is on national identity instead of politics or economy. Voters are faced with the dilemma of choosing between two radical visions. One of them is based on hope and global openness and the other is a party of national isolation based on fear. Most political leaders seem to relate more with the aspect of fear especially terrorism. Many warn that Marine Le Pen might win.

Expected Outcome

Voters are faced with the dilemma of who to vote for during the runoff. Most people are willing to vote for Le Pen if there is a chance of her winning. Even if Macrons wins, which will be a narrow one, her legislative plans will face opposition. The lack of the majority will make it hard for him to enact his legislative agenda. Political professionals suggest that Macron needs to be more dramatic during the elections and win the right mandate.

Increasing Popularity

In case Macron wins and fails to salvage the economy, Le Pen will be unstoppable in 2022. Le Pen is keen to exploit Macron’s missteps. She has been seen as an industrial savior. Recently, she has been to Amiens where factory workers were protesting against closing the factory and moving to Poland. Le Pen has promised to do away with this Mofos discount which will preserve French jobs. Le Pen has announced her decision to step down as head of the far-right party. This had put Macron in the limelight thus increasing her popularity.

Stealing the Show

Le pen interacted with factory workers while confirming to them that their concerns were heard. She promised to fight globalization on their behalf. Even some of them started crying which gave television networks a great story. It was a spectacular show which definitely increased Le Pens’ popularity. She is growing stronger every day and her victory cannot be ruled out.

Marine Le Pen’s Political Growth Towards Runoff

Macron was an economic minister and worked as an investment banker. He has never held an elected office and his campaign is characterized by cocktail ideas. He stands for a border-less society that will ensure the prosperity of the French people. Macron has been able to win the hearts of many French people through the failures and the unpopularity of his opponents. Some of them had corruption scandals while others were unpopular. His political agenda focuses on hope and inclusiveness.

Chances of Le Pen

Disillusioned liberal voters are her path to victory. Masses are more likely to be swayed to top up her figure up to 50 percent. Nearly half of French citizens are against anti-establishment candidates. There is a chance that she will emerge victoriously. This will resemble Trump’s victory. Left-wing candidate, Melanchon who is an anti-globalization has similar ideologies to Senator Sanders. He had not yet endorsed Macron which is a plot to deny the right to win a victory. He is more likely to endorse Le Pen which will be a massive boost for her.


It seems Le Pen has seized Melenchon’s wavering. The duo has similar campaign positions including skepticism on globalization and macro businesses. Many of Melenchon’s supporters are being pressured to vote for Le Pen. They admire her attitude towards the foreign agenda. They resent Macron’s ideas of globalization and pro-business. Le Pen told the nation that Macron has no plans according to for protecting them against Islamist terrorism. Le Pen’s idea of anti-globalization regarding E.U and NATO membership has gained her popularity among the economic-minded masses. She has also called for the deportation of foreign Islamists. As a result, people have started feeling hopeful about security through La Pen.
