Tuesday’s daily OpinionWay poll showed Fillon five percentage points short of making the May 7 runoff at 20 percent, with the Socialist Hamon even further back at 16 percent. Le Pen and Macron were at 26 percent and 25 percent, respectively, with Macron projected to beat Le Pen in the second round by 20 points.

French politics is outside the purview of this blog. My mother was born in france, but I've never done anything to try to get my french citizenship, if even possible, and I don't keep up on the politics. But this upcoming election looks interesting, with an independent likely to beat an alt-right type in round 2, shutting out both the big parties. Is this, in practice, anything like Californoa's top 2? This election will be discusssed in terms of Brexit and Trumpism, reaction to islamicism.
