Le Pen vs Macron

The two candidates for French presidency are well known for having totally different views on the following development of the country; so, this makes the elections tougher, according to Reuters

Emmanuel Macron tends for close European cooperation and open economy, while Le Pen wants to close borders and stop the cycle of the Euro currency.

According to an Elabe pool, Macron will get 62 percent of the votes in the runoff while Le Pen can count on 38, and it means that it is Macron’s best in the voting survey by now. The survey was also influenced by final TV debate between Le Pen and Macron. According to polls, his showing was strong and he won the debates.

However, Le Pen does not give up and shows her desire to win. She finds Macron’s views disastrous for France and she emphasized that in the result of his victory, the country would be submerged by immigration, and the society would be devastated and deregulated.

Another problem is that many voters decided to abstain from further voting because their favorite candidates could not make it to the second tour of an election.  The predicted abstinence is going to be 69 percent because these people refuse to choose between Macron and Le Pen.  In comparison, the voters turnout for the first leg was 78 percent.
