Shock poll shows Marine Le Pen on par with Macron
Only two points separate the two personalities who will be running for the French presidency in the second round, and that is only if the margin of error is not taken into account.

This is a shock poll reported by Challenges. According to a Louis Harris poll, Marine Le Pen and Emmanuel Macron would be neck and neck during the second round of the 2022 presidential election in the event of a duel. According to Challenges, all political parties know it but it has “not been officially published”.
So far, only the outcomes of the first round had been revealed on January 25, and Marine Le Pen came in first (26-27 percent) ahead of Emmanuel Macron (23-24 percent). Regarding the second round, Emmanuel Macron would be in the lead, but only with 52 percent of voting intentions, and 48 percent for Marine Le Pen. The score is all the more interesting for analysts, as it reshuffles the cards for the first time, since it is necessary to take into account the margin of error of two points.
Even if the ballot only takes place in a little over a year and the French are more concerned about the exit from the Covid-19 pandemic, this does not prevent them from thinking about their future. According to Challenges, several factors explain this clear breakthrough by the candidate of the National Rally. On the one hand, it is due to the “respectabilization” strategy of her party in recent months. In addition, voters on the left are also tired of finding themselves in a sort of in-between, stuck between the right and President Macron’s LREM in which they no longer see themselves represented.
Despite the push by personalities such as Eric Zemmour, Marine Le Pen seems to prevail, with a more “calming” attitude than the essayist Zemmour who has become a strong media personality. In addition to the Harris Interactive poll, it is now generally conceded by many analysts that Marine Le Pen can win.
It remains to be seen from now on, if, as Emmanuel Macron believes, removing the “famous myth of democratic reason” will prevail once again. On the left, the Head of State is no longer convincing and his LREM ministers no longer have much of a voice.
Finally according to Challenges, in the first round, the conservative vote would be very “present”, with Xavier Bertrand at 14 percent or Valérie Pécresse at 12 percent. However, according to Harris Interactive, if Emmanuel Macron wants to make a difference, it means erasing conservative voices. And he seems to be far from it.
