French far-right overtakes Emmanuel Macron in EU parliament election poll

French far-right overtakes Emmanuel Macron in EU parliament election poll

At the dawn of the third stage of his "roaming memorial" that started Sunday, Emmanuel Macron denounced Tuesday on Europe 1 "the absurdity of these conflicts, the absurdity of nationalism as a belligerent", which it detects the return to "a Europe that is increasingly fractured" by parties who "play on the fears around".

Together with the seven per cent score of sovereignist Nicolas Dupont-Aignan and one per cent each for "Frexit" parties led by former Le Pen associate Florian Philippot and Francois Asselineau, far-right parties won a combined 30 per cent of voting intentions, up from 25 per cent end August.

The poll asked almost 1,000 French people on Oct 30-31 who they would vote for if the European Parliament elections were to be held the next Sunday.

The Eurosceptic far-left party Insoumise led by Jean-Luc Melenchon has seen its support decline from 14 to 11% since August after its leader was embroiled in a corruption inquiry.

Sunday's poll shows results incongruous with the previous IFOP poll conducted in May, in which LREM was on top with 27% of this vote, while the far-right parties walked away with just 17%.

New poll - According to a new poll France's far-Right National Rally is now more popular than Emmanuel Macron's governing party, as the country becomes more anti-EU and opposed to immigration.

Mr. Macron also said that he "hoped that (the RN) will not win" the european elections in may.

The European Parliament elections will determine who leads the major EU institutions, including the European Commission, the bloc's civil service.

Macron has ambitions to make a statement as part of the elections next year, but so far the signs aren't in his favour.

Macron's popularity has taken a hit in recent months following the acrimonious and very public departure of two high-profile ministers and his inability to curb high unemployment as well as rising fuel prices.
