      Republic on the move. Where they moving to? I’m glad they rejected the hateful LePen or LaPen or whatever he name is.

      Which to me suggests that the Socialist might knock him off next time around.

      But while the margin of victory is significant, the result represents a tightening of the voting since the pair faced off in 2017, when Macron resoundingly beat his right-wing National Rally party opponent with 66.1% of the vote.

      And

      Concerns over the potential for high numbers of hesitant voters or those opting to abstain entirely that dominated the last weeks of the election campaign came to fruition. The abstention rate among France’s 48.8 million eligible voters is projected to be 28%, the highest since 1959, in a sign of the public’s unhappiness over the choice of candidates on offer.

      “The high abstention is very concerning,” says Isabelle Le Breton-Falézan, a lecturer in French political science at the Sorbonne University. “In 2017, Macron was seen as optimistic, a new promise, a disruptor. That’s not the case any more. This represents a rejection of both candidates and not a vote of support for Macron. His legitimacy might be questioned.”

        Voted mainly to stop LePen from winning

      This rule surely can’t apply to the US 2022 congressional slaughter coming.

      Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

      One good thing about Le Pen and her right-wingers. They won’t blame the leftists for their loss, or accuse them of voting for Macron by not voting.

      Macron wins re-election with 58.2% of those that had someone to vote for…

      Folks might not notice that leading into the runoff, Macron only had 28%, LaPenn had 22% and the socialists had 21%. But to American corporate media, it was only the right wing party vs the ultra-right wing party.
