In 2007, Le Pen got 25% in the first round. The PCF candidate got 11.5 The second round was between her and a socialist, who won it 58/42.
Libération leaves unsaid the main reason why it's such a good idea : there's a major corruption scandal involving the PS in this area. Mélenchon would have a pretty good chance of making it to the second round.
Right-wing candidates got a majority of the votes in the first round in 2007 (FN 25, UMP 15, Modem 13), but, roughly speaking, the Modem electorate tipped it to the socialist in the second round.
