The Front National Could Win the EU Elections

Irony of ironies: the Front National, the most anti-European of French parties, is neck-and-neck with the UMP in polling for the EU elections:
Le parti de Marine Le Pen recueille 18 % des intentions de vote, juste à un point derrière l'UMP (19 %). Le Parti socialiste n'obtient que 15 % des intentions de vote, à égalité avec le Front de gauche.

I will be (happy and) surprised if FN gathers less than 25% of votes in the 2012 European Parliament vote. And wouldn't be surprised if UMP and PS were between 10 and 13-14%.

The 2014 "municipales" might be quite different, though. UMP and PS should keep the large majority of the town cowncils.

That's my view "all things unchanged", but I still hope they will change.
