Not sure if that will make a difference or not

It's like Nigel Farage standing as an Independent candidate, instead of representing UKIP

Would that make a difference to his votes?

going as an independent probably a smart move. Im surprised she's drifted, Imo she's increased her chances of a victory

Withheld every poll going 60-40 for Macron, she hardly got any chance of winning this.
I'm sure one poll will probably show 55-45 and he'll start drifting. If he hits 1.3, I'm in.
Her big friend would be huge abstention figures in two weeks time!

I'm a macron layer, so much can happen in two weeks and I believe it's closer than most think

I see MLP's new offer to the people incudes, "Retirement age fixed at 60 and 35-hour week assured"

There's no way the French will vote for that kind of hardship. Not even a mention of breaks for a Gauloises and shot of Pastis. Career suicide.

Quite a bit of money for Le Pen today

Brexit and Trump taught us something - the polls got them both horribly wrong. People were telling the polls something different, to what they were really feeling. Those that voted for the politically incorrect option, didn't shout it from the rooftops

I know France is different, as they have already had 1 round of voting, but on the basis of Brexit and Trump, I suspect this result may be much closer than many Liberals would want to believe

On that logic we're heading for a Corbyn victory. There's a lot of shy-labourites this time, and being left leaning seems to be the politically incorrect opinion these days, especially round here. ;)
