The Ipsos-Sopra Steria barometer for the Franceinfo chain and the Le Parisien newspaper give current French president Manuel Macron 28.5% of the votes for coming April 10 elections, a support that would comfortably guarantee Mr. Macron a position in the runoff, slated for two weeks later.
Mr. Macron lost half a point, but he continues to take the lead over Ms. Le Pen, second with 18.5%.
The summary of polls from the French Institute of Public Opinion (IFOP, in French), on the other hand, reflected the French president with 28% support, also 0.5 points below.
Regarding Le Pen, the pollster places her with 20.5%, half a point ahead of the previous study.
It cannot yet be said that it is a battle between two candidates, since the leader of La France Insumisse, Jean-Luc Melenchon, keeps an upward trend in the polls, and gets his head down to convince voters undecided or reluctant to vote..
According to Ipsos-Sopra Steria, Melenchon is supported by 14.5%, while IFOP gives him 14%.
