Young First Time Voters Explain Why they Are Choosing Le Pen

The French presidential election campaign has been bad tempered and controversial with two candidates from outside the traditional Republican / Socialist duopoly contesting the final run off. Often described as ‘extreme right wing’ (she isn’t) Front National candidate Marine Le Pen stands for national sovereignty, traditional French values and the preservation of jobs for French workers. Her opponent, the globalist Emmanuel Macron favours globalism, the integration of EU member states into a Federal European superstate and mass immigration from areas with backward, third world cultures.

It should be a no brainer for French voters, but incredibly Macron is favoured to win. Things may not be as clear cut as puntits and polling firms suggest however.

Anti-mass migration French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has, surprisingly, attracted majority support among young voters. Two first-time voters explained why she appeals to them. The pair Sacha T. and Baptiste L, are casting their ballots for Marine Le Pen. They are part of a trend of French youth rejecting traditional parties, complaining that neither the socialists or the republicans speak to the young, Liberation reports.
