The centrist Emmanuel Macron retains the presidency of France after clearly defeating his far-right rival, Marine Le Pen. Macron has won with 58.5% of the vote compared to 41.5% for Le Pen. However, the president’s victory is weaker than in 2017, when he achieved 66%, and although the participation has been lower, Le Pen has obtained 2.7 million more votes.

Macron has won in 77 of the 107 French departments. In Paris, she has achieved 85% of the votes, and she also wins in her surroundings, which in total represent 10% of the country’s population.

Macron was the most voted candidate in the first round (with 27.8%) and Le Pen was second (23.1%), but half of the voters chose other options. If Macron has prevailed in the second vote, it is because he has gathered the vote against the radical right.

According to Sunday’s polls, Macron would have achieved more support than Le Pen among the voters of the conservative Valérie Pécresse and the environmentalist Yannick Jadot. Also in the largest fishing ground, the one represented by the supporters of the leftist Jean-Luc Mélenchon, who called for not voting for Le Pen but did not ask for an express vote for Macron. More than a third of that group could have abstained now, but those who voted voted two to one for Macron: according to Ipsos, 17% voted for Le Pen and 42% for Macron.

The Ipsos pollster has also published an in-depth poll measuring the success of Macron and Le Pen among different electorates.

Vote by gender and age

Macron has won in almost all age groups, but he won with more margin among those under 24 (61% voted for him), among people in their sixties (59%) and among those over 70 (71%). ). Le Pen again became more attractive to people aged 25 to 59, where she got half the votes.

Although Le Pen still receives more support among men, a striking change since 2017 is her growth among women: 5 years ago 32% voted for her, a support that now rises to 41%.

Vote by income and profession

The centrist candidate won by the vote of the middle and high incomes. Le Pen had more support from the popular classes, as happened in 2017, but this time she also managed to beat Macron in that group: the far-right candidate added 56% of the vote for incomes of less than 1,250 euros net per household. Among the incomes of more than 3,000 euros, on the other hand, she only voted for 35%.

The results by profession are consistent: Macron wins among managers (77%), but Le Pen prevails among employees (57%) and among manual workers (67%).

In addition, as we saw with the age data, another stronghold of Macron has been the retirees, where he beats Le Pen by two to one.

Also the data on studies leave a similar picture. Le Pen and Macron practically tie among voters without a university degree or only with a high school diploma, but the centrist takes 75% of the vote of graduates.

vote for ideology

The centrist Macron prevails among the people who declare themselves to be on the left, center or “rather on the right”. Macron sweeps all these groups, except for the “very left” people, where 23% say they would vote for Le Pen. The National Regrouping candidate prevails in three ideological groups: among those on the right (53%) or very right-wing (98%), and among those who declare themselves neither left nor right (52%).
