French Leftists Staying Home Could Lead To Le Pen Win

Far-right populist Marine Le Pen is behind in the polls and an outsider to win France’s presidential elections Sunday.

But she still has a slim path to victory, according to experts, one that shares similarities with the more ardent left-wing supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders in the U.S. election last year.

Polls predict Le Pen will get around 40 percent of the vote, a huge increase on her party’s previous performances, but not enough defeat centrist front-runner Emmanuel Macron, who is tipped to score around 60 percent and win the presidency.

Although unlikely, a victory for Le Pen would represent a political earthquake not just in France, but across Europe and beyond. As a populist, she sees herself as a continuation of the movement that elected President Donald Trump, whose victory she hailed as “an additional stone in the building of a new world.”

One way Le Pen could win is if enough French voters stay home — apathy and voter abstinence are her friends.
