Alexandre Smaller, former president of Stéphane Batory assessed that “from the point of view of the interests of France, Europe and Poland, the arrival of Marine Le Pen to power is very dangerous.”

But he said he estimates Le Pen’s chances of winning at a few per cent, given the sympathy of those who pulled out” in the first round.

“There are mostly leftist or mediator candidates, so their voters will vote for Macron, not Le Pen,” he added.

According to Smaller, “It’s not very straightforward.” – He said that a large part of left-wing voters are protest votes, these are populist voices, and these are people for whom Le Pen’s social policy is often closer to the policies of some left-wing parties.

He stressed that “this would end in the struggle for the votes of the left, especially the more serious leftist candidate, the radical left (Jean-Luc) Mélenchon, who received more than 20 percent (the number of votes), only one less than Marine Le Pen.”

Smaller said polls said “about 40 percent of his voters would be willing to vote for president, but more than 20 percent for Le Pen.”
