A new poll taken between March 2nd and 4th put Marine Le Pen out in front with 26.5 percent, Macron second with 25.5, Fillon at 18.5, and Hamon 14.
The survey of 1,822 registrants on the electoral roll over the age of 18 was taken this week and shows that Le Pen’s rhetoric is on the money.
The fight against unemployment is by far the biggest challenge for any presidential candidate with 55 per cent of those questioned saying it’s a major issue.
That has been closely followed by security and the fight against terrorism which 45 per cent of those polled believe is a driving factor in who will get their vote.
Other issues are way behind and Le Pen’s main rival Emmanuel Macron’s concern with climate change is almost laughably dismissed.
Former immigration lawyer Le Pen has been forthright with the electorate and is insisting that she will boost security in a nation weary from horrific terror attacks.
