Macron vs Le Pen: A Deeply Divided France Set For An Almighty Collision

Oliver Gee writes for The Local:

Macron vs Le Pen: A deeply divided France set for an almighty collisionEmmanuel Macron’s and Marine Le Pen’s voters couldn’t be more different. They represent a divided France, both geographically, socially and most significantly in how they see the future of their country.

The presidential runoff vote represents a clash of two very different France’s. The first round is over – centrist Macron brought in 23.75 percent of votes, ahead of National Front (FN) leader Le Pen on 21.53 percent, according to final results.

In other words, 8.53 million French people voted for Macron, compared to 7.66 million for Le Pen.
