Presidential Election 2017: First round of Presidential Election sent Macron vs. Le Pen in run-off

The first round French pres­i­den­tial elec­tion was held on 23rd of April 2017. Since no can­di­date re­ceived more than 50 per­cent of the votes in the first round, the sec­ond round of vot­ing, the run-off, is tak­ing place on 7th of May. Only since the 18th of March the of­fi­cial and el­i­gi­ble can­di­dates were pub­lic. In 2017, there were 11 can­di­dates up for elec­tion, but only the first and sec­ond of the first round of vot­ing have the chance to be­come elected pres­i­dent of the French re­pub­lic in the run-off. Far-right can­di­date Ma­rine Le Pen had a safe lead over the longest time in the polls for the first round of vot­ing, but with Em­manuel Macron, the for­mer Min­is­ter of Econ­omy runs as in­de­pen­dent can­di­date, the race be­came closer and in the end Macron won the most votes in the first run.

About

pollofpolls.eu is a private initiative by three data nerds, who want to offer aggregated polling data for upcoming elections in Europe. Slick design, up to date and comprehensive for anyone looking for the most recent polling numbers and their aggregation. We are not fivethirtyeight yet, but everyone must start at the bottom. We are based in Vienna, Austria, in the middle of the EU with its many difficulties and political disputes going on, and by tracking the political polls we try to give you one option to keep pace with the public mood. We are very aware that polls are far from showing the actual full picture, and we, therefore, see them rather as a very good compass, especially when aggregated. Last but not least, we invest our free time and apologize for possibly occurring bugs or errors.

Contact: Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates and more. We also look forward to your feedback, questions or funny gifs, which you can send us via Email contact@pollofpolls.eu.
