Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Revised estimates:

Macron 28.5%
Le Pen 23.6%
Mélenchon 20.3%

Pécresse 4.8%

Note: the 5% threshold is important. Candidates who do not reach it won't get their campaign expenses reimbursed by the state election fund.

Yeah Zemmour's party will get a shitload of public funding for his 8%, and will instantly be a power broker on the right... dragging what's left of the Repuglicans (who may be very broke indeed) even further right. For example.

Sarkozy may make a comeback; he would be welcomed as a saviour for what used to be the mainstream right (which is the MAJOR casualty of this election). However, this time around, Sarko won't be arriving with suitcases of dollars from Libya to wipe the party's debts...
