Le Pen ahead of Macron in latest EU election polls

Marine Le Pen’s National Rally is topping the polls, ahead of French President Emmanuel Macron’s party, less than three weeks away from European Parliament elections, Breitbart reports.

An Ipsos poll last weekend places Le Pen’s populist-right party on 22 per cent, ahead of Macron’s progressive La République En Marche! which is at 21.5 per cent. In third place is the right-establishment Republicans at a distant 13.5 per cent.

Two other recent polls also put Le Pen’s party in the lead: an Fop-Fiducial survey last Friday puts National Rally on 23 per cent, LREM on 21.5 per cent, and an OpinionWay poll published last Thursday puts the populists on 24 per cent followed by Macron’s party on 21 per cent.

Populist, patriotic parties are expected to make major gains in the EU-wide parliamentary elections between May 23rd and 26th.

The UK’s Brexit Party has been holding first place for a number of weeks and is maintaining a comfortable lead, the latest YouGov poll placing the Nigel Farage-founded party at 30 per cent, followed by Labour at 21 per cent, and the Tory Party at 13 per cent.
