French election part 1

Posted: April 19, 2017 in Uncategorized

After the hard lessons of Brexit and Trump…everyone is silent on the outcome of the French elections.

This Sunday is the first part (second part the 7th May and then the legislative in June).

Polls are so close that are all within margin of error (in order macron, Le Pen, Fillon, Melenchon).

Also to add to the issue is that voting in France is not compulsory.

Latest data show that 64% have decided to vote (against an historical 80%). This is good for Le Pen and Melenchon as extreme right/left electors are more faithful.

30% of the electors are still undecided -this is good for Macron/Fillon as an undecided elector is more likely to have less extreme views.

The undecided and abstention votes will decide the fate of Europe. Quite funny if not so tragic.
