Express.co.uk is right on the money, as Debbie and I see here on the ground in Paris. The French are fed up. Donald Trump resonates with the French, as does Marine Le Pen.
The French presidential race has been rocked after an opinion poll showed leader of the National Front party, Marine Le Pen, is by far the most popular political figure among right-wing supporters, and also gaining ground among left-wing circles.
Only 53 per cent of right-wing supporters claimed to feel the same way about France’s former head of state Nicolas Sarkozy, and 67 per cent for Alain Juppé, who is currently favoured to win the spring 2017 presidential election.
The poll made another shocking revelation: two thirds of the French – 63 per cent – think that left-wing politicians could be wiped off the French political scene following next year’s elections.
