Can Far-right candidate Marine Le Pen win the French election?

A hologram of French Left party leader and candidate for the 2017 French presidential election Jean Luc Melenchon speaks to supporters who gathered in Grenoble southeastern France Tuesday

The top two candidates will meet in a runoff on May 7.

The 65-year-old anti-establishment contender said about the EU: "We change it or we leave it".

"French voters will head to the polls Sunday to vote for the country's next president".

Her rival candidates were happy to let "immigrants turn France into a very big squat", she argued.

With just a few days to go before Sunday's first round of voting, every poll for the past month has shown independent Emmanuel Macron and the National Front's Ms Marine Le Pen in the lead.

Ahead of his final event in the western city of Nantes, Macron met with the country's RAID intervention force accompanied by Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian. "Are we going to be able to live as French for much longer when entire neighbourhoods are taken over by foreigners?" she said to wild applause and cheering.

In the second round, Mr Macron would defeat Ms Le Pen by 64 per cent to 36 per cent, according to Opinionway, which also says Mr Fillon would defeat Ms Le Pen 58 per cent to 42 per cent. However, Le Pen has lost some ground as Fillon and Melenchon closed the gap. Hamon, the Socialist, trailed in fifth.

"Emmanuel Macron warmly thanked Barack Obama for his friendly call", En Marche! said in its own statement, Reuters reported.

Ms Le Pen's promises to pull France out of the euro, cut immigration, make it harder to get French nationality and to get tough on suspected Islamists, have kept her in joint top place in most of the latest polls. "A peaceful and democratic uprising to give France back to its people", she said, "a day of glory will arrive".

France and Germany are the top two economies in the European Union and an exit by France would devastate the bloc and upset financial markets.
