I've been paying more attention to this, I'm curious to see if France is going to go down its own rabbit hole with Le Pen. First round is next week.

With Melonchon's rise it would be spectacular if the EU/globalists were left without a candidate in the French runoff.

I have a feeling they'll both underperform though.

Meanwhile, the left's nightmare is if Le Pen and Fillon are the two that advance. You could make a not-so-insane case that a lefty might actually prefer Le Pen to Fillon.

yeah from what I understand, Le Pen is economically far left, though they probably all are by US standards.
