Anti-Euro Party’s Le Pen Gains Supporters, French Poll Shows

Helene Fouquet, Bloomberg News, February 12, 2014

Marine Le Pen, leader of France’s anti-euro, anti-immigration National Front party, is gaining support among mainstream voters, a TNS-Sofres survey published today for Le Monde showed.

Forty-six percent of people polled said Le Pen is “the face of patriotic conservatives, with traditional values,” while 43 percent said she heads the “nationalistic, xenophobic extreme right,” the Sofres survey showed.

Marine Le Pen, 45, is the daughter of the party’s founder, Jean-Marie Le Pen. The National Front advocates exiting the euro, cracking down on illegal immigrants, capping legal migrants and greater integration of Muslims.

Thirty-four percent of the respondents in the poll said they support the National Front’s ideas and 59 percent said they didn’t. The party’s support has increased by 12 percentage points since Marine Le Pen took over the helm from her father in 2011.

Sofres interviewed 1,061 people face to face between Jan. 31 and Feb. 3. {snip}

Polls in November showed the National Front as the country’s most popular party ahead of the May European Parliament elections.

    Marine’s got a chance to win considering the current Socialist president Francois “Le Dork” Hollande now has a 19% approval rating.

      Inexorable defeat looms for the traitors and they know it.

      Marine has run a masterful and subtle campaign. She is a shining example of one who has sidestepped all traps, artfully bided her time while nudging history along it’s natural path.

      The reckoning approaches…

  • BonV.Vant

    the white tsunami is building

  • Garrett Brown

    Fantastic news and inspirational for other white countries. I look forward to the election.

  • RisingReich

    I anticipate an attempt to outlaw the Party due to ‘racist messages’.
    That’s what they do when power is threatned. See Golden Dawn in Greece.

    • NeanderthalDNA

      Won’t work in France but let them try. As in Greece, it will only backfire.

      In a parliamentary system, these numbers are portentious of something major and beyond the control of Europe’s “leaders”.

      New leadership to come.

      • RisingReich

        God Willing.

  • Spartacus

    Madam Le Pen has a lot of work to do… France has some of the most degenerate marxists in the world .

    • NeanderthalDNA

      Look at how far things have changed and in such a short time.

      There is a mechanism for these types, Sparty, once power is won…

    • nativist

      Somehow the people and building look more
      like what I’d expect to see in England.

      • Spartacus

        Nope, they’re from France. I have a video of the march this was taken from somewhere in my bookmarks .

        • Sangraal

          Is it in Calais by any chance? I thought the same as nativist, there’s something very English looking about that lot (plus the English language slogan). They do a lot of anti-border/pro-invader stuff in Calais (it being the border, effectively), and UK reds go over there.

    • So CAL Snowman

      None of those people look like they are going far in life. They almost look like kindling to me.

      • Geo1metric

        Your impression comes from the fact that these people are stuck in La La Land. In other words, they are alien to this world… the real world. They live in dreamland, and I’m not talking about area 51.

    • TeutonicKnight67

      “France has some of the most degenerate marxists in the world ”
      Of course She does. This is the same land that gave us the odious French Revolution which would later bear hideous fruit in Marxism. Tragic.

    • BonV.Vant

      This handful should be sent back to the island of misfit tools

  • Truthseeker

    Did this survey include minority occupiers in France, or only actual French people?

  • Geo1metric

    Let these ridiculous EU “leaders” continue to defy the natural course of things.

    They will reap the whirlwind.

    France for the French. Norway for the Norwegians. etc., etc., etc.,

    “patriotic conservatives….“nationalistic, xenophobic extreme right,”

    Same thing.

    French anti-racists:

    • NeanderthalDNA

      All lined up nicely and closely packed together.

      Not looking very young, either…

      • TeutonicKnight67

        Lots of commie red on display too

      • Peter Connor

        What would Napolean think, or do?

        • NeanderthalDNA

          Grapeshot.

          • Peter Connor

            Yep, assuming that case shot wasn’t handy. Nothing like a closely packed mob.

          • NeanderthalDNA

            Hotshot would be tactically inappropriate but visually spectacular, lol…

    • curri

      They all seem to have the predictible zombie look. And they were obviously all given their signs by the party apparatchiks.

      • Einsatzgrenadier

        Multiculturalists are brainwashed fanatics. Leftist ideology is just so stupid you would have to be brainwashed into it in order to believe it.

        • bilderbuster

          The people who coined & promote the terms Multiculturalism & Diversity don’t believe in it nor practice it among themselves.

  • Anglo

    “The National Front advocates exiting the euro, cracking down on illegal immigrants, capping legal migrants and greater integration of Muslims.”
    I have one problem with this. I hope “greater integration of Muslims” is a mis-print. Attempting to Integrate Muslims will be a grave mistake. All Muslims should be expelled from France or exterminated by whatever means.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      The only difference between Marine and the other European traitors is that she advocates a slower white genocide.

    • Sangraal

      Yes, I did a double-take when I read that. It is a sign that we are on the back foot, when even nationalists promise Borg-like ‘assimilation’ instead of repatriation (which remains unthinkable)*. In my less cynical moments, I hope that as these moderate parties become more successful, they will become more bold, and more vital measures will become more feasible. It seems more likely however, that they will be co-opted.

      *N.B. I draw the line at extermination, on both humanitarian and practical grounds.

      • Einsatzgrenadier

        “*N.B. I draw the line at extermination, on both humanitarian and practical grounds.”

        That depends. Muslims should be exterminated if they resist repatriation.

    • bilderbuster

      All Semites, no matter their religion, are non French & should be deported.

  • MBlanc46

    Vive Marine!

    • jeffaral

      Vive Jean Marie too!

  • Anna Tree

    If you build it, they will come…

    Anti-immigration party. First let’s close the door.

  • wildfirexx

    The white European backlash has begun…better now than never!
    The average French citizen has finally begun to realize that their elected officials have betrayed them, by poisoning their country with foreign imports through forced multiculturalism and trying to change the very fabric of French society. In the real world they should be forced to resign, and charged for treason.

  • wildfirexx

    You said “white people loose the voting majority”
    A scary thought!

  • PouponMarks

    I hope Marine is the tsunami that washes the filthy Left down the gutter and into the hinterland.

  • BonV.Vant

    the local paper is nothing but marxist blather. It is presenting an illusion, a lie.

    • Fr. John+

      I believe you spelled Marxist incorrectly. The word starts with a ‘J’…

  • Fr. John+

    ““nationalistic, xenophobic extreme right,”
    Hmmm. has a nice normalcy ring about it. I’d move to France if she and her cultural programme are enacted. As somone once said, ‘There’s not much reason to be an American Citizen these days.”
    Plus ça change…
