UPDATE: The New York Times reports:
In France’s most consequential election in recent history, voters on Sunday endorsed Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen — one a political novice, the other a far-right firebrand — both outsiders but with starkly different visions for the country, early returns and projections indicated.
The result was a full-throated rebuke of France’s traditional mainstream parties, setting the country on an uncertain path at a critical moment when France’s election could also decide the future of the European Union. The two candidates appeared to be headed to a runoff on May 7.
NBC News says that Le Pen was “backed by a quiet army of women” who were concerned about their future and that of their children in an Islamic France.
UPDATE: The Washington Post says that nationalist Marine Le Pen will advance to the second round and face globalist Emmanuel Macron.
We are watching closely to see how Marine Le Pen does in the first round of voting today in France following an explosive few weeks of Muslim immigrant terror attacks, National Front campaign HQ bombing and being denounced by the Israeli government. Given all that has happened and the tight race between the top four candidates it is difficult to know exactly where Le Pen stands – but the media seems pretty bullish on her chances.
According to The Telegraph’s poll tracker globalist Macron is at 24%, followed by nationalist Le Pen at 22%, cuckservative Fillon at 19% and communist Melenchon also at about 19%. If this is the outcome it would send Macron and Le Pen to the second round and be the best ever result for the National Front.
