Who would you like to see elected President of the Republic on May 7?
Voter Preference Two Key Points
- Le Pen Topped Macron on February 22, Taking the Lead for the First Time.
- Macron Down Five Percentage Points Since February 7.
“Without thinking of the candidate who has your preference, among the following candidates in the presidential election, which one has scored the most points in the past week? “
Marine le Pen is scoring the most points with voters despite a recent surge for Fillon.
- Le Pen stacks up well vs. Macron and Fillon on Jobs, pensions, security, terrorism, and immigration.
- The idea she cannot win or is highly unlikely to win is a serious mistake.
- Those on the Right may well vote for Macron in that pairing, but will those on the Left vote for Fillon?
- I suspect Le Pen would beat Fillon.
