Weird that most french outlets aren't reporting actual results.

Macron claiming first place, that little bitch. He's thanked his "wife", but not his lovers, go figure.

The ministère de l'intérieur starts to give the official results regions by regions (not all the regions yet)

RE: French Presidential Election Thread
Most of the interior (rural?) is not counted, so, hopefully, Le Pain can regain her lead.

Also, I think that South will vote for her, because they have a lot of problems with immigrants (Marseille, for example).


Both of those should offset Paris, which will go full Maricon, no doubt.



EDIT:

Is that Rachel Maddow's long lost twin sister?

Maricón means gay, yes, but more generally: pussy, coward. No seas maricón = don't be a coward. Still fits Banana

Corsica, and most of the south went full Le Pain.

As expected. Napoleon is smiling in the heaven right now.



I remember that some rapefugess in Corsica were beaten to pulp, because they attacked some women in bikini.

If they are willing to do that, voting for Le Pain is no big deal.

RE: French Presidential Election Thread
It doesn't really matter who wins the first round (unless you're betting). Macron getting into the second round is what matters. Now all depends on how the center right Fillon voters will act, but things certainly don't look promising. Though it doesn't matter much in practical terms, it is indeed revealing that it seems he'll eke out a win in the first round. Maybe. That really would say it all, at least in terms of the psychology behind it all.

If I'm wrong in a couple of weeks I'll gladly eat these words. France is finished. It's really amazing that in the face of constant terror attacks, riots, the jungle camps, etc. - in a word - invasion, that they still won't act. They would rather destroy their country than be called racist. I'm not so sure anything quite like this has ever happened before.

But it is what it is. I've been trying to take my focus off politics for the past few weeks and just improve certain skills (persuasive ones, mainly). It is very refreshing, I must admit. Perhaps it's fiddling while Rome burns, but you can't put out the fires by yourself.

Might as well focus your attention (the key thing) on what you can control rather than what you can't. For those in Western Europe, the path forward seems to be make money and get the fuck out. Go to the east, maybe to Britain, or to America where there's still some hope. Fight in places where your odds are better than where they're slim to none.

You're not alone there. In hindsight it was just too unpredictable to justify the bet and I plead guilty to populist hubris.

62 percent of french in lebanon voted for Fillon

12 percent for Lepen

16 for Macron

6 for Melenchon


Unfortunately i think theyre a representation of those who should be voting Lepen but vote for Fillon as the safe correct choice. Although i expect a big percentage to go to Lepen but still if youre not voting for her now what are you waiting for

Beirut
Budva
Belgrade
Tbilisi
