Marine Le Pen is essentially France’s Donald Trump.
Just after being written off as a serious contender for the French presidency, Le Pen took a massive lead in the first round of presidential polls.
… today we learned that contrary to previous polls, the leader of National Front leader Marine – the person whose surge in the past few years has been most equated to the French populist revolt that has taken place in the UK and US – has taken a commanding lead in the latest French presidential election poll.
As the Independent writes in “Marine Le Pen takes huge lead over nearest rival in new French presidential election poll“, according to the latest, Nov. 20, Ipsos poll, Le Pen had 29% of the vote when pitted against Nicolas Sarkozy, who was eight points behind, and held a 15-point lead over the Parti de Gauche’s Jean-Luc Mélenchon in the poll released by Ipsos, which analysed five scenarios with different frontrunners.
What’s hilarious is that this is what the left-wing media reported on Le Pen’s candidacy just days ago:
