On April 24, Macron, the victor of 1st round of presidential french election, will face off against Le Pen, far-right candidate.
His followers chanted, “Nothing has been determined.”
Although he has a five-point lead in the first round, polls show that the second round will be a lot tighter than expected.
To put France back in order, Ms Le Pen urged all non-Macron voters to join her.
As of Sunday night, Mr. Macron had a two-point lead in the latest surveys.
A longtime far-left agitator who placed just behind Marine Le Pen in third now holds the unusual role of kingmaker in the race for president of France.
His supporters were urged not to cast a vote for Marine Le Pen, but unlike other contenders he did not support her. It is possible that many Mélenchon supporters will not vote in the second round and thus have no say in who wins.
When tactical or “useful” voting began to take root in the United States, just three candidates garnered more than 10 percent.
When it comes to presidential elections in the year 2022, the demise of France’s two former ruling parties, Republicans and Socialists, will be a major talking point. Socialist candidate Anne Hidalgo dropped below 2 percent in the polls.
Right up until recently, Valérie Pécresse was still in the running for the right-wing Republicans. As a result of how poorly she did, her party was only able to claim 5% of the election expenditures.

The fight for the public’s vote has begun in earnest. In addition to Eric Zemmour’s 7 percent of the vote, Marine Le Pen has the support of those who support her more harsh nationalist views. Also, nationalist Nicolas Dupont-Aignan has lent his support.
Ségolène Royal, a former Socialist candidate, said that Mr. Macron now had to “earn” his victory, despite the support of most of the other candidates on the left.
According to Ifop pollster François Dabi, their forecast of 51% – 49% was the closest they had ever predicted. An Ipsos poll found a 52 percent to 48 percent difference, while a BFMTV poll found a somewhat larger one.
His followers were relieved to see him, and he promised to work even harder than he had done before. He had barely begun campaigning eight days prior, his attention being drawn more to Russia’s conflict in Ukraine.
We can’t feel that things are going well while “the extreme right in all its forms” is so prevalent in our society,” he explained.
“I want to convince them in the next three days that our initiative responds solidly to their anxieties and difficulties of our day,” he said.
Le Pen stated that the French people would have to choose between two opposing ideologies on April 24: “Divide and rule or unite under guaranteed social justice.”
The president was supported by one in four young voters, but more than one in three 18-24 year-olds chose Jean-Luc Mélenchon, according to a poll by Elabe.
President Obama received the most votes from people 65 and older, but Marine Le Pen received the most votes from people 35 to 64, according to the latest polls.
