To no one’s surprise, support for Emmanuel Macron has quickly fallen off a cliff and is rapidly hurtling downward. I’m not sure why this should be such shocking news. Macron was elected purely to stop LePen; no one actually supported him or any of his policies.
Most French voters are now dissatisfied with Emmanuel Macron’s performance, a poll showed on Sunday, marking a dramatic turnaround for a president who basked in a landslide election victory less than four months ago.
The poll, conducted by Ifop for newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche (JDD) showed Macron’s dissatisfaction rating at 57 percent, 14 percentage points worse than Ifop’s last poll in July.
Forty percent expressed satisfaction with the centrist leader – also down 14 points from July.
Macron, who is midway through a schedule of official visits to various European capitals, has suffered a number of setbacks since being elected, including tough debates in parliament over labor reform, a standoff with the military and cuts to housing assistance.
With that being said, the French are so petrified of LePen that I would be willing to bet Macron would win re-election again if he ran against her.
