As the French presidential race heats up, one thing is clear: support for the left is tanking

Recent polls in France show voters are deserting the left in droves prior to next year’s election, dashing the hopes of those who predicted the SPD’s success in Germany might signal a resurgence of socialism in Europe.

The race to be the next president of France is heating up. In recent months, we have witnessed a significant drop in support for Marine Le Pen and the emergence of another insurgent outsider, controversial journalist Eric Zemmour. Moreover, we have also seen the chances of Michel Barnier, the European Union’s former Brexit negotiator, quietly improve.

It is fair to say that Le Pen’s road to the Elysee has narrowed recently. Back in July, she was regularly polling around 25%, yet the latest poll puts her down on 16%. The collapse in Le Pen’s support has come at the hands of Zemmour, who is now running almost even with her, despite still not officially declaring his candidacy. Some are now predicting that Zemmour is the biggest threat to another four years of Macron.
