France is more concerned with subduing the rise of the far-right than they are of his policies.

The elimination of Eric Zemmour, another far-right candidate who was previously convicted of hate crimes, has allowed for more scrutiny of Ms Le Pen’s policies – and it’s becoming clear that many French voters don’t agree with some of her hardline stances.

Many of Ms Le Pen’s policies on immigration, the EU and Russia irk people of all political persuasions – and this could push those who didn’t vote for a far-right candidate in the first round into Mr Macron’s corner.

But still, the biggest issue at stake at the end of the campaign remains left-wing voters.
