Macron by 8-10 Points in French Presidential Election

I am placing my official prediction for the French Presidential Election and the French are voting as we speak and while I hope and pray Le Pen will pull off the upset (and it is possible since her support is enthusiastic and his is not as such) I think the vote will be something like 45-46% for her and 54-55% for him.  A moral victory but not a true victory.

    Crow part deux? Macron wins by 30 points. (I don’t take satisfaction in calling you out!) Any particular reason you were overestimating the FN’s performance from polling?

    • I know you don’t enjoy the razz and it is okay – really – you do it in the right spirit.

      I think what i did was I took the polls that said about 62-38 Macron and added a few points to Le Pen to 44-45 and I knew turnout was lower this time so I thought it should be fine. But she underperformed. Again.

      Five years from now, I am told from a reliable source, assuming the Lord Jesus does not come by then, there will be a libertarian candidate for President of France and I plan to give them some seious blog time. I do not expect them to win but liberty will be on the ballot and that is a victory right there.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
