What will the voters of the second round of the 2017 presidential election do in 2022?

Our poll also looks at the choice that voters who voted Emmanuel Macron in the second round in 2017 will make, and those who chose Marine Le Pen. The voters of the winner of the 2nd round are many to want to turn away from Emmanuel Macron, while the electoral base of Marine Le Pen seems more mobilized. But the head of state manages to convince his supporters, while the dynamics are negative for the boss of the RN. Recall that Emmanuel Macron had collected more than 66% of the vote and Marine Le Pen less than 34% in 20217.
