    Eric Zemmour and members of the National Rally see this survey as a confirmation of their notions on immigration. With a sample of more than 2000 people registered on the electoral rolls, the polling institute Harris interactive for Challenges asked about the possibility of a “Great Replacement” occurring in France.

    It was described in this study as being the phenomenon of “European, white and Christian populations […] threatened with extinction following Muslim immigration, from the Maghreb and black Africa”. Among those who expressed an opinion on this question, according to this poll, 61 percent of them believe that it would happen.

    At the same time, 67 percent of those polled said they were “worried […] about such a phenomenon”. Among the defenders of this theory, Eric Zemmour is one of the leading media figures. “The ideas that I espouse are now central in French society”, he noted on Twitter.

    The MEP of the National Rally (RN), Jean-Lin Lacapelle, quipped in these terms: “The ‘Great Replacement’ is a fantasy for a large part of the political class, but a reality and a concern for a large majority of French people. […] Act or disappear!”

    Another RN MEP, Nicolas Bay, also stated on Twitter that “the ‘Great Replacement’ is a reality experienced and suffered by many French people, and a legitimate concern for the majority of them”. The theory was developed by the writer Renaud Camus. Generally denounced as conspiratorial and racist by its detractors, this theory asserts that the French and European population would be gradually replaced by an extra-European immigrant population.
