Le Pen Leads in 1st Round French Voting Intentions: Poll

Ania Nussbaum, Bloomberg, August 1, 2014

An opinion poll by Ifop for the French magazine Marianne shows Marine Le Pen, leader of the anti-euro, anti-immigration National Front party, leading in first round of France’s next presidential election.

According to the poll conducted online July 21 and 22, Le Pen would score 26 percent, ahead of former president Nicolas Sarkozy with 25 percent. The socialist candidate, President Francois Hollande or Prime Minister Manuel Valls, would finish third and would fail to make the second round with 17 percent. The poll did not measure second-round voting intentions.

After gains in the French municipal elections in March and in the European election in May, when the National Front got 24.8 percent of the votes nationwide, Marine Le Pen sees herself following in her father Jean-Marie Le Pen’s footsteps. The party founder reached the second round of the presidential election in 2002 with 17 percent, ousting Socialist Lionel Jospin. Le Pen lost the second round to Jacques Chirac, who scored 82 percent of the votes.

    Should I make this my AmRen ‘feel good’ article of the week?

    Inquiring minds want to know…

    • Unperson

      I second that emotion, as stories about Mme. Le Pen’s popular successes always make me feel good too. .

      I don’t care where “it” starts. I’m not French, but if “it” starts in France, then I say “Fantastique!”. Last year it looked like “it” might start in Greece with Golden Dawn. But it really doesn’t matter where “it” starts, only that “it” starts. Because once “it” does start, a domino effect will see “it” being repeated in white nation after white nation.

      • David Ashton

        Yes, and let’s not be too fussy about her ideology (re the Usual Suspects who are anyhow deserting La Belle France). “It” must start somehow, somewhere.

      • IstvanIN

        Golden Dawn has been attacked and smeared by the Greek authorities. They have even attempted to ban Golden Dawn. The Europeans who don’t have the freedoms we allegedly do.

    • E_Pluribus_Pluribus

      Not so fast. Le Pen is highly likely to make to general election, which will likely be Sarkozy vs. Le Pen. Alas, at that point the out-of-the-running socialists are far more likely to throw their support to Sarkozy than to Le Pen.
      The best scenario for Le Pen would be to have to go up against Hollande, the socialist in the general election. Then the right would not find themselves splitting their vote in the general election. But one engineers that outcome is a mystery.

      • Sick of it

        Sarkozy helped to create this mess they’re up in arms about…but they’ll vote for him again in order to prove they are not racist. Truly, liberalism is some sort of sick pseudo-religious cult.

        • E_Pluribus_Pluribus

          Too true about Sarkozy, the smarter French equivalent of G. W. Bush.

          • Garrett Brown

            Why was a Greek Hungarian even elected in France in the first place?

    • propagandaoftruth

      Vive le France.

  • Einsatzgrenadier

    A victory for Le Pen in France would be an event of world-historical significance. Hopefully, this would be the prelude to a traditionalist conservative, nationalist takeover of Europe. Conservative nationalist seizure of the reins of power would be followed by the mass expulsion of Africans and Muslims and treason trials of EU bureaucrats and their liberal totalitarian stooges in all national European governments.

  • Isn’t Sarkozy being investigated for criminal activity?

    • IstvanIN


    • Oil Can Harry

      The real crime would be if Little Nicky wins this election.


    We are getting closer and closer to the tipping point when the neocon/globalist “center right” in France collapses. Other European countries are heading in this direction too.

    The problem now is that older and affluent French voters are clinging to the GOP style fraud conservatism represented by Sarkozy. As the baby boomers die off, the base of the “center right” will disappear.

  • David Ashton

    Her Dad had an early success and became a detail of French political history. What can we do to help her WIN?

    • Sick of it

      Not much, short of becoming French citizens by the millions.

      • David Ashton

        The French of all political persuasions have managed to keep their country a mostly “green and pleasant land” – unlike their Anglo-Saxon “rivals” across La Manche.

        • Sick of it

          A green and pleasant land filled with nuclear reactors and ethnic no-go zones.

    • Paleoconn

      Dad got in trouble with the tribe when he said the German occupation wasn’t so bad. Marine seems to avoid such traps.

      • M.

        He also called the Holocaust “a detail of WW2”. Hahaha, that didn’t even try to hide his position on the Jews. The daughter seems to be learning the lesson though.

        • plaintruthforidiots

          Yes, how dare her father tell the truth that the ‘Holocaust’ didn’t happen. There are plenty of people in prison right now for daring to question this ‘event’, which you laughably believe actually happened. If it happened, why do the Jews have to imprison people who prove it didn’t?

          • M.

            I have my doubts too regarding the Holocaust. However, those who enacted the anti-negationist laws in France weren’t Jewish but French. They did it mostly out of penance for the direct involvement of Vichy France in rounding up thousands of French Jews and delivering them to the Nazis.

        • Paleoconn

          Bad move indeed. Anybody who downplays the holocost from the numero uno event of the last century (let alone among events of WW2) is a rabid antisemite.

  • Anglo

    It’s very good news that Marine Le Pen is now slightly ahead of Nicolas Sarkozy. I don’t even consider Sarkozy truly French. His father was Hungarian and his mother was of Greek Jewish and French Catholic. He’s a miscegenator and traitor to the French people.

    In Tiberge, 01/26/2009: In his message Sarkozy insisted that the French people must change, that there will be dire consequences if they don’t, and that not to intermarry racially is bad for the survival of the country. Thus he amalgamated the concepts of preference for minorities in job hiring with that of the need for the French to intermarry racially.

    • Paleoconn

      There is no such thing as Greek Jewish. Unless you mean a Jew who happened to live in Greece.

      • Anglo

        According to what I’ve read, Sarkozy’s mother was the daughter of a Greek immigrant born to the Mallah family, one of the oldest Jewish families of Salonika, Greece. His father came from Hungary.

        • Paleoconn

          I shouldn’t pick nits. You are right about the geographical origins of this reptilian politician’s ancestors. However, I am as allergic to terms like Greek Jew as I am to Mexican-American. Sorry, but the only Americans are European and Indian.

          • Anglo

            I agree. American to me means White European — non-Whites are not European — or one of the native North American Indian tribes.

  • Pro_Whitey

    Give Bloomberg some props, they appear to have managed not to use extremist and far right in their article, at least not in this excerpt.

  • IKUredux

    Let’s hope she doesn’t back down, and start to equivocate on her positions. Occasionally, when the stars are correct(hell, I don’t know), a woman(White) arises who is a helluva a leader. France already had Joan of Arc, perhaps, Marie Le Pen will follow in her footsteps.

    • newscomments70

      Let’s hope the blessing spreads into Germany, the UK, the US, and Australia.

      • IKUredux


      • IKUredux

        I’m tired of hope. And change. I want action.

    • David Ashton

      Not to the stake, I trust.

      • IKUredux

        Hmmm, it could be…especially if the muslims take over. Oh wait, that would be stoning instead.

        • David Ashton

          “Crucify the pagans wherever you find them” – the only major “faith” that conspicuously lacks the Golden Rule. The only consolation would be that their secular leftist sycophants would be the first to go, the Jews and Christians hopefully just paying the tax to stay live and to travel back to front on the donkeys. Shia fun and Sunni days await.

  • Paleoconn

    I think she is distancing herself from Jobbik and Golden Dawn due to their alleged antisemitism. Smart move, but I hope she doesn’t end in the pockets of the Israel lobby and globalists.

    • David Ashton

      She must keep her focus on France and Europe, and let others get entangled with the Palestine-Israel conflict. Jews are leaving France because of mainly Muslim “antisemitism” but not making aliyah to Israel. These issues are more complicated than keeping France French.

    • M.

      Well, so far, she hasn’t uttered a word on what’s happening in the Middle East. She’s remaining faithful to her non-interventionist principles, and that’s a good thing.

      What would be a really smart move, is for her to say a nice word or two on the Palestinians, and more or less condemn the Israeli “heavy-handed response”, something like that. She doesn’t have to mean it. That would get her a lot of votes from the sizeable North African community living there.

      • jayvbellis

        Don’t bother with sucking up to the NW Muslim immigrants, Blacks – it never wins any votes for Right wing nationalists. Just be firm,and fair. You’ll get respect, but not votes.

    • plaintruthforidiots

      No, not a ‘smart move’, seeing as the Jews are the cause of all the problems we face. You’re either a Jew, or wilfully ignorant. Try Googling ‘Jewish tyranny’, ‘Jewish power AIPAC’, etc.etc.

  • plaintruthforidiots

    LOL at all the comments effectively saying “She mustn’t name the Jew” – it’s the JEW who caused all of these problems (mass immigration, denial of free speech) in the first place! Until we remove the JEWS from our country, we will never be free.

  • Ed

    One thing I like about the French is they feel that their culture is superior and have no qualms expressing it. They never bought into the silly Anglo notion of multiculturalism and that every culture has equal merit.

    The global elites pushing this nonsense maybe in for a thunderbolt. Another thing I don’t think French women are as gaga for Black men as Anglo women.

  • Sick of it

    As I’ve stated before, a lot of “French” people are ethnically foreigners. Going back several centuries at least. This new democratic system gives those foreigners a voice they never had before. French people weren’t dark in the Middle Ages.

  • slash345

    Nice. Now if she can get elected and they can deport all of their muslims and africans I’ll be ecstatic.

  • Billy Clinter

    Paris is a beautiful city. I was there in April, and walked for hours and hours around the city for 5 days. I never did find the muslim part of town, which was absolutely fine by me.

  • AFlaVet

    We need to bring her over here. Perhaps the French are finally waking up to the fact they can’t afford new cars every weekend? La Pen…would be far far better than the Butcher of Benghazi if you ask me.
