Macron v Le Pen

Five years ago Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen faced off in France's presidential poll. Now again, in 2022, the two are battling it out for the country's top job. Back in 2017, Macron had an easy win, picking up 66 percent of the vote. But now, according to the polls, he is the frontrunner, but his victory is not a foregone conclusion. The latest surveys show the race now is much closer with one of the country’s most respected pollsters giving Macron a slight lead with 51 percent of the vote.
