French presidential election: Macron still in the lead, Le Pen at 20%, according to a poll

Steph Deschamps / March 25, 2022

Incumbent President Emmanuel Macron remains ahead in voting intentions in the first round of France's presidential election, but the gap is narrowing with his far-right rival Marine Le Pen, whom he would clearly beat in the second round, according to a poll.
 
The president-candidate is credited with 28% of voting intentions in the first round of the election to be held on April 10, losing one point in one week, according to the OpinionWay-Kéa Partners barometer for Les Echos and Radio classique.
 
The leader of the far right Marine Le Pen reached the 20% mark (+3), ahead of the radical left candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon (14%, +2) and the candidate of the traditional right Valérie Pécresse (12%, stable).
 
The other candidate of the extreme right Éric Zemmour passes under the 10% mark, at 9% (-2), ahead of the ecologist Yannick Jadot (5%, -1), the communist Fabien Roussel (4%, stable), the deputy Jean Lassalle (3%, stable) and the socialist Anne Hidalgo (2%, -1)
 
In the second round on April 24, Emmanuel Macron would win with 55% of the vote (-3 points) against Marine Le Pen.
 
According to the barometer, French people's interest in the presidential election has risen slightly (+2 points) from one week to the next, to 64%.
 
Voting intentions are not a forecast of the outcome of the election. They give an indication of the balance of power and dynamics on the day the survey was conducted.
 
Survey conducted from March 21 to 24 by self-administered online questionnaire among a sample of 1,619 people registered to vote, drawn from a sample of 1,710 people representative of the French population aged 18 and over, using the quota method.
