New poll

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. The results come just a year-and-a-half after President Macron roundly defeated his closest rival, Marine Le Pen, to become head of state. Her National Front has now changed its name to the National Rally (NR) in an attempt to soften its image and move away from its racist roots. A poll examining voting intentions for upcoming European Parliament elections show the National Rally on 21 per cent, with Mr Macron's Republic on the Move (LREM) on 19 per cent.
