French presidential longshot Marine Le Pen is surging in the French polls.
A BFM TV poll found that over 50% of those surveyed believe Le Pen had a good start for the 2-week sprint to the final vote 9 days from now, while her opponent, Emmanuel Macron had the support of only 43%. Just a week ago most polls gave Macron a 25-to-30-point lead in the race.
A Harris Interactive poll found that the populist Le Pen now leads Macron by an astounding 61-to-48 margin in post 1st-round election polling. If this sentiment holds, that would represent an unprecedented 40 point reversal.
