French far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen delivers a speech in Paris

Melenchon has risen in polls ahead of the first round of France's presidential election on April 23, with some pollsters saying he could have a chance of reaching the May 7 presidential runoff. But as John Oliver demonstrated last night, she continues to rail against immigrants and serve up some truly ghastly rhetoric with regard to religious minorities. Marine Le Pen, the candidate for the far-right National Front, is one of the frontrunners.

"The money I earned in my life, I earned it".

More than 15 million people in France voted against the constitution with nearly 55 per cent of people voting No with 45 per cent in favour, with a turnout of 70 per cent.

French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron said on Monday he did not have offshore accounts or a hidden inheritance, less than a week from the first round of voting in an election marked by allegations of impropriety.

Another point favoring Le Pen is the sure vote of part of the electorate: since she assumed the presidency of the NF in 2011, the candidate led a renewal process of the party that allowed to alleviate the image and win the support of numerous citizens, belonging mainly to the middle class and unfavored sectors of society. France is fractured, and its current president, Fran├žois Hollande, has an approval rating of four percent. So unpopular, he is not seeking a second term.

Alongside Hamon, there are 10 other candidates, some of which have some rather outlandish views. Beyond his policies and debate performances, he's made headlines for making rally appearances in multiple locations through the use of holograms.

HHS Secretary Price's former House seat may soon be in Democratic hands
Special elections will hold particular importance for Democrats this year, as Republicans now control both the House and Senate. Now, she says, she's free to ask all her friends and neighbors to be "on our team". "I think we did pretty well in November".

While, the diesel trim gets a 1.2-turbocharged 3-cylinder mFalcon D75 engine which generates 77bhp of power and 190Nm of torque. It combines the appeal of an SUV and the practicality of a compact auto , making it a compelling value proposition for buyers.

"If there is a Trump effect on the campaign, it is that in many minds, it's assumed that anything is possible", said Emmanuel Riviere, director of Kantar Public's polling in France.

There's Fran├žois Fillon, who served as the prime minister of France from 2007-2012. His campaign has been marred with scandals, including "Penelopegate" where his wife and children were employed in nonexistent jobs, and an investigation into whether he broke electoral rules by receiving the gift of two expensive suits. France's presidential candidates certainly think they do, and more than ever are trying to get their political message across through their wardrobes, from centrist Emmanuel Macron's regular-guy suits to far right leader Marine Le Pen's masculine dark wardrobe and hard-left Melenchon's communist-inspired jackets. Ian Bremmer, head of the Eurasia Group, described him as "not super attractive to anyone".

Le Pen is one o. Her party was founded by her father, a man who described the Holocaust as a "detail" in history.

Two other polls had Macron just ahead of Le Pen in the first round, and beating her comfortably in the second.

Also similar to what unfolded in the USA throughout 2016 is the media's cavalier dismissal of Le Pen as a serious candidate.

French anti-corruption campaigners Anticor flagged concerns last month about discrepancies in Macron's disclosure of assets, but the public transparency watchdog said in response it had found no inconsistencies. "I will rebuild a strong and balanced alliance, thanks to you, with Germany in order to give back Europe a real dynamic".
