As the French election approaches, polls show a remarkable increase in support for Marine Le Pen. Macron’s popularity has begun to plummet, which has alarmed members of the EU’s elite.
While Macron has been doing very little political campaigning and hasn’t attended many political debates, LePen has seen a significant surge in popularity as a result of her tireless on-the-ground campaigning and proposals to address bread-and-butter concerns.
Marine Le Pen’s campaign has been mostly ignored by the mainstream media; instead, knowledge of her rallies has spread via social media and local media.
