May 2019 European Parliament Election Looking for Major Upset


The French Revolution is still alive and well. In France, French President Emmanuel Macron’s abysmal approval ratings have simply continued to collapse. He has suffered as the French have reviewed his elitist lifestyle mixed with his attempts to reform union and then throw in his controversial immigration policies. Many now believe he will collapse to under an approval rating of 10% perhaps matching his predecessor the socialist Francois Hollande, who was so unpopular, he didn’t even bother to attempt a second term.

Now, the National Rally (formerly National Front) party’s candidates for the May European Parliament election are beating Macron in the polls. This is the first time the far-right party has overtaken Macron’s centrist movement in the polls which is a mirror of events in Germany with the rise of the AfD. The May elections coming in 2019 appear to be headed to another major political blow for the EU. Macron’s “En Marche” ticket is failing as is the case for Merkel in Germany.
