Majority of French voters think that RN can one day rise to power
The operation launched by the National Rally of Marine Le Pen to become more mainstream has been a success.
PARIS – According to a Kantar-One Point survey for Franceinfo and French daily Le Monde, the National rally (RN) is increasingly popular in France. At least, it is no longer seen as a harmful and dangerous party. Some 49 percent of French people believe that Marine Le Pen’s party is no longer “a danger for democracy”.
Better still, 56 percent of French people believe that the party will be able to come to power one day in France, a figure up nine points in one year and 16 points in two years.
In addition, only 51 percent of the French believe that Marine Le Pen’s party represents “a danger for democracy”, a figure down four points.
However, support for the ideas of the RN is not progressing, at 26 percent, and remains below the levels before the presidential elections of 2017 (33 percent). In total, 67 percent of those polled say they disagree with the party’s ideas.
Le Monde also reported a strong signal for a possible union of rightwing parties. In fact, almost half (48 percent) of the supporters of the Republicans party say they are ready to form alliances with the RN.
In the event of a second Macron-Le Pen second round in 2022, the President of the Republic would be placed in a much more uncomfortable position than in 2017: according to the poll, the proportion of those who think that “the RN can one day come to power” has particularly increased among leftist sympathizers (+ 15 points in one year). As Le Monde explained, they are today at odds with presidential politics and Emmanuel Macron’s policies.
Some 20 percent of French people want Marine Le Pen to play an important role in the months and years to come, but only 16 percent hoped that Marion Maréchal (pictured) would play a leading role. As a reminder, Marine Le Pen’s niece has withdrawn from the party in recent years.
For the municipal elections, a little more than half (54 percent) of French people say that they would be dissatisfied if their commune (ER: municipality) was headed by a mayor from the RN. On the contrary, 14 percent of those polled would be satisfied with it.
For the second round, 52 percent of those questioned are in favor of a “republican front” to block the RN, that is to say, a merger of all the lists outside the RN or a withdrawal of certain lists.
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical.
