France’s Fillon seen winning presidency against Le Pen: poll



Clicking on that link led me to an article entitled “France’s Fillon battered by scandal, blames opposition plot,” which says something else entirely:

France’s Francois Fillon accused his opponents in the government on Wednesday of fomenting a scandal in an attempt to scuttle his presidential campaign, as a new poll showed him no longer favorite to win power.


The poll by Elabe pointed to rising support for far-right National Front leader Marine Le Pen and made centrist Emmanuel Macron the candidate now most likely to win the presidency, with voters appearing to desert Fillon in large numbers.


The title is wrong, he is set to lose now because of a financial scandal. :confused:


I’ve posted a new thread correcting this one:
