Dr Stephen Fisher comments on Marine Le Pen’s lead in the polls

Stephen Fisher has commented in an article in the Independent (12 January) about polls which show Marine Le Pen in the lead in the French presidential race.

“Two polls showing Marine Le Pen in the lead mean it is looking a little more likely she will do well, but the main thing to consider is the public still know her much better than her likely two competitors, in particular they don't know who the Parti Socialiste competitor will be at all,” he said.
